The new episodes of the PBS Kids Go! toon are set to debut on Monday, September 13th, featuring a voiceover cast filled with special guests; Kristen Schaal (from Toy Story 3), John Henson, Jeffrey Tambor, Tom Kenny (from SpongeBob SquarePants), and John C. McGinley. Amongst the returning case, be sure to note Dannah Phirman as WordGirl, Chris Parnell as the Narrator, and Maria Bamford (from Kick Buttowski) as Mrs. Botsford. The Soup2Nuts production, part of Scholastic’s animation team, stars Becky Bostford, an alien girl whose alternate identity is that of WordGirl.

Disney, ImageMovers, and Gotham Group bring Dark Life to the big screen

Through the past few years, ImageMovers Digital has come forth with a number of animated hits, each in the motion-capture style: The Polar Express, Beowulf, A Christmas Carol, and the upcoming Mars Needs Moms are just a few pieces of the overall puzzle. Despite ImageMovers running into a bit of recent financial trouble, the studio remains in the headlines, with new plans for new animated greatness. Potentially next up to bat: Robert Zemeckis and Disney are hoping to work together on the big screen treatment for a brand new Scholastic novel, Dark Life. Together with the Gotham Group, the hope is to make the story into a futuristic underwater adventure film. Once all the economic dust settles, we’ll get a better picture of the film’s potential future. So until then, we’ll remain a bit… under water.

Deltora Quest his Cartoon Network

Talk about a global effort! Turner Entertainment Networks in Asia has recently been working with USA’s DCI Los Angeles to bring the animated adventure series Deltora Quest to Cartoon Network in Australia. Thankfully, all of this international mingling has been successful, and the show will debut in that region next month. Perfect timing, too, as Scholastic is relaunching Emily Rodda’s book series of the same name, as well. The series follows the adventures of three companions as they journey across the magical land of Deltora to recover magical artifacts and defeat allies of the evil Shadow Lord.
