Marvel and Funko Debut Animated Shorts with Marvel Funko Short
View the World Premiere of Animated Short 'Spellbound'
Hello Marvelites, we’ve got a special treat for you guys. We’ve collaborated with Funko to create three brand-new, 90-second animated shorts. Check out the first short, “Spellbound,” above!
“Spellbound” features Funko Iron Man and Funko Spider-Man facing off against the trickster Loki and his mind-controlling scepter.
“Telling Marvel stories in the Funko Pop! aesthetic is a special kind of magic unlike anything we’ve ever done. These shorts are both hilarious and action-packed – and irresistibly adorable too. Really, I think all audiences will love them,” said Cort Lane, Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Animation and Family Entertainment.
“We are beyond excited to bring our Pop! Vinyl to life by collaborating with Marvel,” said Mark Robben, Funko’s Director of Marketing. “We hope fans enjoy these short films as much as they do collecting Pop!, and hopefully we’ll be able to create many more.”
Be on the lookout for the next two animated shorts roll-out! “Bait N Switch,” premiering on 12/7, features Rocket breaking into the Collector’s museum to try and set his buddy, Groot, free. “Chimichangas,” premiering on 12/14, features Deadpool facing off against Venom!
The Marvel Funko shorts include story and animation by A Large Evil Corporation and were executive produced by Brian Mariotti, Dan Buckley, Cort Lane, Joe Quesada, and Alan Fine.
