Young Storytellers Write Stories Based on 'Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors'
Marvel continues mission to nurture a new generation of heroes!
Last summer, Marvel partnered with the non-profit group Young Storytellers giving middle school students a very special opportunity to write stories based on "Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors," and then seeing their artistic vision come to life.
Working with Disney mentors, these students wrote a 3-5 page script based on select characters from "Marvel Rising." The scripts will subsequently be performed by a talented group of Marvel Rising and Marvel Animation voice actors including Chloe Bennet, Kamil McFadden, Milana Vayntrub, Kathreen Khavari, Roger Craig-Smith, and Melanie Minichino, and narrated by Skai Jackson.
