Funko and Marvel Team Up for Short Series: Spellbound


Marvel Entertainment and Funko have recently joined forces in order to launch a brand new CG animated shorts web series that features Funko’s extremely cute POP! line of vinyl toys. These Marvel Funko shorts are borne from the creative efforts of A Large Corporation (tory and animation) and EP’s Brian Mariotti, Dan Buckley, Cort Lane, Joe Quesada, and Alan Fine.

The first episode of the short series clocks in at 90 seconds and is titled “Spellbound.” The short focuses on Funko Iron Man and Funko Spider-Man teaming up to take on the trickster god, Funko Loki. Armed with a mind-control scepter, Funko Loki proves to be a handful for the duo.

“Telling Marvel stories in the Funko POP! aesthetic is a special kind of magic unlike anything we’ve ever done. These shorts are both hilarious and action-packed – and irresistibly adorable too. Really, I think all audiences will love them,” said Cort Lane, Marvel’s SVP of Animation and Family Entertainment.

Two more episodes will be rolling out this month: “Bait N Switch” on Dec. 7, in which Rocket Raccoon breaks into The Collector’s museum to free Groot; and “Chimichangas” on Dec. 14, which sees Deadpool face off against Venom.
