According to recent reports from Deadline.com and the Wall Street Journal, The Walt Disney Co. have resumed talks to acquire some of the assets of Fox, amid reports of other big players entering the arena in a bid to acquire Fox’s properties. Some of the interested parties include NBCUniversal owner Comcast, and Sony.

The deal with Disney is said to cover Fox’s movie and TV studios, as well as its international holdings in ventures including a stake in the UK satellite company Sky. Fox News, Fox Broadcasting Co., and Fox Sports Networks are not part of the deal but even with their exclusion, the acquisition is big news because if it comes to fruition, the Walt Disney Co. will be one step closer to finally acquiring all of Marvel’s film properties under one roof.

It is reported that Murdoch and family, which hold 39% of the 21st Century Fox voting shares, will decide by the end of the year whether there will be any sale moving forward, and to whom.

It was only last week that the new My Hero Academia game, dubbed One’s Justice, has been announced for the Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch, but as it turns out – the game is already far along enough that Bandai Namco was able to share a bunch of new screenshots, coinciding with the official website going live.

If the screenshots have not made it clear yet, One’s Justice is an action game that will have players batting it out using their Quirks across gorgeous cel-shaded environments that mimic the look of the anime it was based on. It is also said that the stages will have destructible environments that offer their own in-game advantages.

No concrete details have been provided regarding the roster, but protagonist Izuku Midoriya and villain Tomura Shigaraki feature prominently in the screenshots, which should prove that at least one of them is playable.

As far back as 2015, toy manufacturer Spin Master has already expressed a desire to reboot the hit property Bakugan, and while news have since quieted down over said reboot, their recent Q3 2017 financial call gives fans hope: it has been revealed that Bakugan will be returning with a new toy line and a new TV show soon. Soon-ish, at least, as the plans put the schedule somewhere between 2018 and 2019.

The news is pretty darn official, as it came from Spin Master’s own Global President and COO Ben Gadbois, who listed Bakugan as one of the “several exciting TV shows” in the company’s entertainment group. Mr Gadbois also expressed plans to expand on their other properties Paw Patrol, Abby Hatchers, Rusty Rivets, and Hatchimals.

A couple of new trailers has just been released for the upcoming animated theatrical film titled Batman Ninja, which is exactly what the title implies – a story about Batman turning into a ninja (barring the obvious criticism that he, technically, is a trained ninja.) And no, this is not a fanfilm. It’s an honest to goodness official project from Warner Bros./DC, with animation handled by Kamikaze Douga (and it frankly looks and flows better than most recent DC animated movies!)

The plot for Batman Ninja is par for the course for what the Batman comic books do when they need to place the world’s greatest detective in places and times that are not exactly in line with the publisher’s strictly-policed continuity – it involves THE Batman and his allies being transported back in time to the Warring States Period in feudal Japan, in order to stop the Joker from rewriting history after usurping the Japanese warlord Oda Nobunaga.

You can watch the trailers below:

Despite the massive hype surrounding the release of Bandai Namco and Arc System Works’ gorgeous 2.5D Dragonball fighting game, Dragonball FighterZ, the PC port isn’t exactly all sweetness and light as many players are worrying about the ridiculously high minimum system requirements (especially for a game of its kind). At the moment, the Steam store page lists an i7-3770 CPU, a GTX 660 4GB GPU, and 16 GB of RAM as the minimum requirements. It’s not unattainable, and we suspect many gamers already have rigs capable of exceeding those, but it is still too high for a minimum and players are worried that it’s an indication of a lazy unoptimized port.

If you are part of the people who were worried, Bandai Namco has stepped in and officially confirmed that the minimum requirements on the Steam store page are not final, and will be updated later on.

We suspect that the listed minimum specs are merely based on the PCs used by the developers to develop and test the game, and they have not yet done further testing in order to see how the build will perform on weaker PCs. It is a very common occurrence with Japanese-developed games on Steam, with other examples being the Koei-Tecmo-developed Dead or Alive 5: Last Round and One Piece Pirate Warriors 3, both of which initially had ridiculously high system requirements, but turned out to be optimized enough to run on potato PCs upon release.

Of course, Bandai Namco has only said that the minimum system requirements are not final. They never said that it’s going to be lower. For all we know, the true system requirements are much higher – but let’s not jinx it. We want Dragonball FighterZ to run on as many PCs as possible. We want it to run on your grandmother’s desktop, on your aunt’s laptop, on your sister’s pink AIO PC, and heck – we want Dragonball FighterZ playing on the little LED screen attached to the local gym’s treadmill. So get to it Arc Sys, optimize the shiz out of our game, and our wallets will be open and willing on January 26, 2018!

According to a recent announcement, Warner Bros. Television Group’s digital studio Blue Ribbon Content is currently hard at work on a new spin off based on the Scooby-Doo franchise, titled Daphne and Velma. What makes this spin-off project noteworthy is that it’s a live-action series starring Sarah Jeffery (Shades of Blue) and Sarah Gilman (Last Man Standing) as the titular female sleuths.

Of course, this is not the first live action appearance of Daphne and Velma, as there have been several live action takes on the Mystery Inc crew (official projects, and unofficial takes such as the one featured in the cult comedy film Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back.) The official synopsis reveals that this is a prequel of sorts to the Scooby Doo franchise, following the adventures of the duo before they teamed up with Scooby and the rest of the gang:

Before their eventual team-up with Scooby and the gang, bright & optimistic Daphne and whip-smart & analytical Velma are both mystery-solving teens who are best friends but have only met online — until now. Daphne has just transferred to Velma’s school, Ridge Valley High, an incredible tech-savvy institute with all the latest gadgets provided by the school’s benefactor, tech billionaire Tobias Bloom. And while competition is fierce among the students for a coveted internship at Bloom Innovative, Daphne and Velma dig beyond all the gadgets and tech to investigate what is causing some of the brightest students in school to disappear — only to emerge again in a zombie-fied state.

The project is being produced with Ashley Tisdale and Jennifer Tisdale’s Blondie Girl Productions, and will be release by Warner Bros. Home Ent. in 2018. Lifeboat Prod. provides production services.

“Blondie Girl is committed to telling stories from a female perspective and we could not be more thrilled to give Daphne and Velma their own story,” said Ashley Tisdale and Jennifer Tisdale, producers and founders of Blondie Girl Productions. “It’s so exciting to partner with Warner Home Entertainment and Blue Ribbon Content to introduce a new generation to the smart, charismatic, fearless females that we all know and love.”

Big Bad Boo Studios’ hit animated show 1001 Nights will be debuting on the US Spanish-language network VME Kids this December, which should allow many Spanish-speaking households to enjoy animated stories as told by the determined storyteller Shahrzad. The series is currently enjoying success all over the world, as it airs in over 120 countries and translated to over 15 languages.

The series is based on the original tales, but freshens them up a bit to fit the target 6-9 year old kid demographic. It incorporates an educational curriculum companion series of books that reach over half a million children in developing countries through partnerships with schools, refugee camps, and UNICEF. Big Bad Boo is currently in production for Season 3 of the series, and has successfully negotiated licensing deals for comic books and merchandise in several territories.

We are beyond excited to have 1001 Nights airing on a Spanish-language network in the United States, reaching brand new audiences,’ says Shabnam Rezaei, president and co-founder of Big Bad Boo. “Hispanic-American kids and their families will be able to enjoy these classic tales, on Vme Kids which is a premium channel.”

Vme Kids will begin airing the program December 1, at 9:15 a.m. at 8 p.m. EST.

The extremely talented crew at Lupus Films has recently produced a touching new Christmas ad for luxury brand Barbour, featuring the return of two favorite animated characters – Billy and his beloved pet dog from The Snowman and The Snowdog, which is a 2012 animated special based on Raymond Briggs’ books.

This new festive offering features a now adult Billy celebrating Christmas with a family of his own, but despite the years, it is revealed that he has never forgotten his old friend the Snowman. The ad then shows that when the snow falls on Christmas Eve, magic can and will happen.

“Lupus Films is always delighted to help expand the world of The Snowman and The Snowdog, and it was a pleasure to work alongside Barbour and Thinking Juice again to produce the upcoming Christmas campaign,” says Adam Jackson-Nocher, Lupus Films’ production manager. “It’s great to see iconic brands like Barbour supporting traditional animation in the UK and engaging with classic British storytelling, and we hope the audience enjoy watching the film as much as we have enjoyed making it!”

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has recently entered into a partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America in order to launch a Merry Minions Holiday Program. This joint venture celebrates the season alongside the home entertainment release of the CG animated blockbuster, Despicable Me 3.

Under the Merry Minions Holiday Program, the Boys & Girls Club members will engage in exciting Minion-themed activities designed to foster the values of friendship, teamwork, leadership, and creativity. Participating clubs in select markets — including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Dallas, Seattle, and others — will receive unique “Merry Minions” holiday kits containing a variety of Despicable Me 3 party, baking and craft items to help spread the holiday cheer.

The celebrations will run throughout the month of December, as the Boys & Girls Club kids will be working together in order to create holiday ornaments or gift items, decorate baked goods, design artwork inspired by the Minions, hold Minion-themed screening parties, and more. Group activities using the “Merry Minions” holiday kit elements are intended to foster the BGCA’s mission of teaching youths to be productive, caring and cooperative, themes also reflected in Despicable Me 3 and ideal for the holiday season. Clubs will have the opportunity to turn activities into fundraising events, community service projects, opportunities for volunteer support functions, gift-giving and mentoring/teaching lessons for youths.

Despicable Me 3 has grossed over $1 billion at the global box office and is available now on digital and on Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand and 4K Ultra HD on December 5, 2017.

French studio Xilam Animation, which is known for the sleeper hit Oggy and the Cockroaches, has recently secured a raft of new deals across the Asian region ahead of the Asia Television Forum (ATF). The first batch of the new deals covers presales for the new animated series Mr Magoo; in 2018, Cartoon Network Asia will be airing the 78 x 7 minute series in Southeast Asia, Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, India and Indian subcontinent, and New Zealand.

Next, Cartoon Network Asia has also ordered seasons 6 and 7 of Oggy and the Cockroaches. The new seasons will be debuting on the network’s channels next year. Previous seasons are currently airing in Asia via a number of different networks, including Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Netflix, and Amazon. All in all, the series is being distributed around the world and watched by more than 600 million households.

Aside from the CN deal, Xilam also scored another Asian deal with Chinese distributor Jetsen Huashi Wangju Kids, this time around it’s for the digital rights to season one of Xilam’s Zig and Sharko. The series is slated for release in China across their VOD platforms.

In India the company continues to make its mark– over the last 12 months, Xilam shows have been sold to Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, Cartoon Network, Sony as well as local Indian VOD platforms including Amazon India, Alt Digital and Hungama. Almost every Xilam property is airing in the country.

Moreover, UYoung in China is currently airing Oggy & the Cockroaches, and has also secured TV and VOD rights for the following properties which are set to air next year: light-hearted pre-school toon Paprika, and kids’ wildlife series If I Were an Animal.

Marc du Pontavice, Founder and President at Xilam Animation, said: “Asia is an important region for us and we are thrilled to be expanding the presence of our programming there in 2018. We’ve had so much success with our shows to date and look forward to building on that next year.”

It’s not a secret that the long-running monster husbandry franchise Pokemon is very popular – after all, any multiplatform cartoon, toy, and game franchise that has had multiple iterations over the span of more than 20 years has to be, otherwise its parent company is just wasting money. And Nintendo is definitely known for being particularly strict about where they spend their money on (hence the choice to deprioritize hardware power when it comes to their consoles – whether that’s good or band is subject for another discussion, though.)

What is kind of surprising is just how popular the Pokemon franchise is – the Pokemon Company has recently announced that the series has already reached the 300 million sales milestone. And this is not a case of a company trying to stretch definitions and include all manner of sales. According to the report by Famitsu, the 300 million sales figure only accounts for physical sales, which means digital sales and re-releases, as well as Pokemon GO don’t count.

When the indie 2D run and gun/platforming game Cuphead was first released, it attracted a lot of attention not only from gamers but also from cartoon fans due to the use of an engine that simulates the look of classic Fleischer-era cartoons. It brought a lot of charm to the visuals, which heavily contrasted with the game’s brutal difficulty.

Recently, the folks at 64 Bits homed in on Cuphead’s distinctive art style and decided to do a mashup video with another game that is known for its casual-unfriendly difficulty – Dark Souls. The short video is called CupSouls, which reimagines From Software’s Dark Souls using the visual style employed by Cuphead. You can watch it below:

If your life has a robot-shaped hole in it, Bandai Namco will be filling it this coming December 11, 9:00 PM as they will be hosting a live stream that is said to have a key announcement about the Super Robot Wars franchise. While there are no details yet, it is bound to be something that will appease the millions of Super Robot Wars fans all over the globe.

For the uninitiated, the Super Robot Wars franchise is a long-running video game franchise that features representatives from various mecha anime properties, such as Gundam, Voltes V, Mazinger Z, Macross, UFO Grendaizer, etc. all locked in a massive turn-based JRPG crossover. While technically not canonical to each series’ respective continuities, the stories still have depth and go far beyond mere fanservice. Of course, those who only value fanservice will still enjoy the idea of seeing their favorite robots from different anime and manga properties smash each other to bits.

Warner Bros. has recently unveiled the first official trailer for their upcoming CG feature, Smallfoot. The title comes from the film’s play on the mystery surrounding the cryptid called Bigfoot, as a tribe of Yetis discover a human, which – if still not obvious at this point – is the eponymous “smallfoot.” You can check out the trailer below to see things more clearly:

The film boasts of a stunning voice cast that includes the likes of Channing Tatum, James Corden, Zendaya, Common, LeBron James, Gina Rodriguez, Danny deVito, Yara Shahidi, Ely Henry, and Jimmy Tatro.

Smallfoot is directed by Over the Hedge’s Karey Kirkpatrick, who has taken over directing duties from Ryan O’Loughlin (who was originally attached to the project, but dropped out last spring.) The story is based on Sergio Pablos’ work, with scripting duties handled by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (Cats & Dogs, Bad Santa), who are known for being part of Warner Animation Group’s “think tank.”

Smallfoot is due in the U.S. September 28, 2018.
