I'm thinking Disney Afternoon Shows like Aladdin the Series and shows from the 2000s like Lilo and Stitch the Series. but yeah, those too.

I'm looking forward to there being a few cool Marvel animated projects on Disney Plus.
The only thing I'm a tad concerned about is that it seems like pretty much all the Marvel content on Disney+ is going to be MCU-based, even this series from the initial report, so I hope an MCU connection isn't a barometer for content on Disney+ getting approved because that could prove limiting in certain respects.

Obviously I'd hate for us to not get new (and great) cartoons based around Spider-Man or The Avengers just because they won't directly tie-in to the MCU. Ditto for the Fox properties.

For announcements, I think April 11th was rumored as a date for an investor's day event or something like that, when Marvel could reveal more about the live-action Loki series coming to Disney+ so I would imagine it'd be the best place to announce some animated projects for the streaming service as well. Comic-Con seems to focus on the Hulu series, from what I can tell.

There's a general Disney+ thread on the Disney/Pixar forum where you can discuss more about this. Let's keep this topic about Marvel Animation, and potentially new such shows.

I think it would be cool to probably do some MCU based episodes but I do hope that they don't base everything around that and that they really make the most use of this format. After seven years of cartoons trying not to "confuse" kids by not straying from the MCU, I hope they ditch that idea.

Is there a D23 this year? Because I remember that having a lot more animated news then what we usually get out of Comic-Con :sweat:.
Whatever Marvel cartoon they have planned I hope the X-Men will star or at least make cameos in it. Regardless how I feel about them being allegory for being a minority groups, we could use more of that in our current socio-political climate.
It would be nice to see the X-Men in animation again :).

We have What If? supposedly in the works. I still think Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur might be going to the service. If those two turn out to be real, the only other show I really wish for right now would be a new X-Men series. It's been too long for me.

I think a Moon Girl show aimed at the TV-Y crowd, X-Men for TV-Y7, and What If? for TV-PG could be a pretty cool selection of Marvel shows if they're all well done and everything, ideally. This is wishful thinking though. Disney and Marvel might have completely different offerings in mind.

I was thinking of the What If? Issue that they said would be adapted "What if Loki had found the hammer of Thor?" and that got me wondering how this would be able to be based on the MCU. I just remembered that, during the first Thor movie, we saw what happens when Loki came across the hammer in SHIELD custody. He wasn't able to lift it. I've never read that issue before but I'm really curious what they're going to do here. I guess finding it doesn't mean that he necessarily needs to be able to lift it.

Given the live-action Marvel shows announced for Disney+ are supposed to be mini-series (6 or 8 episodes, I think), I wonder if this will also have a shorter amount of episodes. Or if it would be doubled if they need 6-8 hours of content for each show, since I kind of doubt the animated series will have episodes longer than 30 minutes (give or take a few minutes). Either way, I'm looking forward to this.
I could see this maybe being 10-13 episodes, give or take.

I am kind of surprised they haven't announced more cartoons for the service though. Really curious to see what they do on that front :confused:.

Yeah, the announcements for animation have been a little light other than Monsters Inc, What If and The Simpsons.

Don't forget The Clone Wars. Honestly, my question is how much money they'll put into What If. Will it be really good animation like EMH or even Ultimate Spider-Man, or will it just be par for the course for Marvel animation these days and look as cheap as one can get?

Ultimate Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy will also be on the service.

Surprisingly no Marvel's Spider-Man or Avengers Assemble (or other older Marvel shows).

I have to imagine, with Feige involved and this being connected to the MCU, it will get a sizeable animation budget.

Unless all the money goes to casting the MCU actors :p.

I am kind of leaning towards them using Titmouse, if only because they're doing the Moon Girl cartoon and also some of those cool Star Wars animations based on older movies :).
Titmouse handled the Spider-Ham short recently as well.

I've kind of wanted to see Titmouse involved with a Marvel show since GI Joe Resolute. They'd do things like Black Panther, or the Marvel Heroes game or their Deadpool pitch but it still wasn't the fully realized show that I wanted to see. Being on board the Moon Girl show had me very excited but we have had no news. If they were working on What If?, I'd be very okay with it.

I'm glad they were able to to patch up after that Deadpool fiasco.
I don't think there was much to patch up. Titmouse made their pitch but another studio won the job, until they lost the job.

I am a little disappointed that they didn't have any of the Avengers anime's listed.

Are we ever going to be able to watch those legally :p?
