... announces new animated product.

... During their Comic-Con panel on Saturday, July 23, Marvel Animation announced a new full-length animated film, Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell. The movie will focus on the Hulk and Doctor Strange, and will also feature the monster team known as the Howling Commandos. The movie is described as being dark, creepy, and more adult than any of the shows Marvel is currently producing, which could mean it was somewhat influenced by the more adult-oriented animated films coming out of DC. The film will be released sometime this fall.

Marvel also announced they're launching a 12-part series of animated shorts starring Rocket Raccoon and Groot. A brief clip was shown, and I can say that the animation is beautiful and unlike any of the other cartoons in Marvel's stable. The shorts will air on Disney XD, and Marvel plans on eventually producing more shorts for other properties. ...

A lot of Marvel's animated series pre-production work is done in two Disney buildings located near Flower Street in Glendale. But the Rocket and Groot shorts? Created off on the other side of the planet, in France:

With the French film commission Film France offering new tax credits to studios who develop projects in L'Hexagone, several animation studios are headed there for new projects, including Marvel Animation. ...

Nineteen different projects are currently being worked on in France, and two of those include new Marvel Animation TV shorts, Ant-Man and Rocket and Groot. Directing duo Ugo Bienvenu and Kevin Manach, who have a handful of animation projects under their collective belt, will be handling Ant-Man. ...

Never, but never, underestimate the power of Free Money.
