Along with Francisco Gonzalez’s excellent weekly news recaps–This Week in Superhero News and This Week in Movie Trailers–we’re happy to provide you with This Week in Animation News to get you caught up on all things animated you might have missed over the past seven days. We’re talking movies, TV shows, digital shorts, and everything in between!
This was a busy week in the world of animation, one that included our own interviews with Marvel’s Cort Lane regarding their animated shorts featuring Funko Pop! characters, Eric Stonestreet from The Secret Life of Pets, and Marc Guggenheim who teased an upcoming announcement for CW Seed’s Vixen and The Ray. Plus, we exclusively premiered two TMNT posters that will be on display at this weekend’s Mondo gallery featuring Nickelodeon prints! Disney saw a pair of accolades this week: Zootopia landed on AFI’s Top 10 Films of 2016 list, and Moana continues to rule the box office. Contributor Evan Valentine also shared his thoughts on how The Simpsons might come to their inevitable end.
