Disney Streams New Tsum Tsum CG Short

Disney Japan released a new CG animated Tsum Tsum short last Monday, which is directed by Hiroshi Chida and supervised by Yoshiki Nakao of Plygon Pictures. The Tsum Tsum short is based on the popular mobile puzzle game from Line and Disney, and the series itself has already debuted on the Disney Channel and the free Broadcast Satellite channel Dlife last December 12.

CLIP: Teen Titans Go! – Beast Man

Warner Bros. Animation has released a new clip for the next episode of Teen Titans Go!, which is set to air this coming Thursday, April 2, at 6:00/5:00c on Cartoon Network. Titled ‘Beast Man,’ the episode shines a spotlight on the Titans’ lean green, shape-changing machine as he discovers yet another aspect of his powers.

In ‘Beast Man,’ Beast Boy accidentally discovers the ability to change into an adult man. Which, to be frank, actually makes a lot of sense. If he can transform into something as different as an Elephant, why not something that is basically his own body, only older.

You can check out the clip, as well as a bunch of new images below:

Nickelodeon Launches New Rob Dyrdek’s Wild Grinders App: Downhill Grind

Nickelodeon has just launched a new action-packed mobile game based on Rob Dyrdek’s Wild Grinders animated series. Titled ‘Wild Grinders Downhill Grind,’ the mobile game is already available on iOS, Google Play, and Amazon-capable devices. The game is an endless downhill skate game that allows fans of the show to team up with the Wild Grinders crew and put their skateboarding skills to the test.

Wild Grinders Downhill Grind is made specifically for mobile devices and takes advantage of the touchscreen to provide intuitive swipe controls in order to grind and perform insane tricks throughout the levels. The game also introduces various power ups designed to give players a boost while going for the high score or unlocking new content such as levels, skateboards, characters, and more.

Sony Picks Up Rights to Live Action Robotech

These days, any Hollywood live action adaptation of Japanese animated properties, will automatically earn the scrutiny of viewers, as the string of failures (both in terms of shoddy products and projects that were consigned to development limbo) have already left a bad taste in people’s mouths.

However, it seems like Sony hasn’t been paying attention (or they’re extremely confident), as Variety has just reported that the studio has acquired the movie rights to Harmony Gold’s Robotech franchise (which in turn is just a Frankenstein localization of several Tatsunoko-produced mecha anime; Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber MOSPEADA.) and they are allegedly planning to use the license for a live action movie.
