WonderCon 2019 – Marvel Announces New Marvel Rising Animated Specials

Marvel Rising had a BIG day at WonderCon on Sunday!  Fans got the opportunity to see Marvel Rising: Heart of Iron, which introduces Riri Williams AKA Ironheart (Sofie Wylie) to the team!  You'll be able to see the special on Wednesday April 3rd on Marvel HQ on YouTube, but that wasn't the only surprise that fans were in store for.

It looks like we will be getting not just one, but THREE new Marvel Rising specials.  Here is what fans will have to look forward to:

  • Marvel Rising: Battle of the Bands spotlights Dove Cameron (“Descendants 3”) as Ghost-Spider in a 22-minute animated special. On the day of Gwen’s “Battle of the Bands” competition, mysterious attacks force her and the Secret Warriors to investigate. Can they save the city and get Gwen to the concert on time?

  • Marvel Rising: Operation Shuri will introduce the fan-favorite character Shuri, voiced by Daisy Lightfoot (“Marvel Avengers: Black Panther’s Quest”) to the Marvel Rising universe in a 22-minute animated special. The lives of the Secret Warriors are turned upside down when faced with their latest mission: hang out with Shuri, the Crown Princess of Wakanda, and show her what it’s like to be an ordinary teenager. But nothing’s ordinary when you’re dealing with one of the smartest and most famous people on the planet.

  • Marvel Rising: Playing With Fire will star Tyler Posey (“Teen Wolf”) as Inferno. In this 44-minute special, Inferno's powers are stolen by a young and powerful villain and it's up to the Secret Warriors to defeat their new foe and help their friend. But does Inferno even WANT his powers back? Meanwhile, America Chavez, voiced by Cierra Ramirez (“Good Trouble”), learns a lesson about friendship and family from teammate Ms. Marvel.
