RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON Teaser Trailer

Long ago, in the fantasy world of Kumandra, humans and dragons lived together in harmony. But when an evil force threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, that same evil has returned and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the legendary last dragon to restore the fractured land and its divided people. However, along her journey, she’ll learn that it’ll take more than a dragon to save the world—it’s going to take trust and teamwork as well. From directors Don Hall and Carlos López Estrada, co-directors Paul Briggs and John Ripa, producers Osnat Shurer and Peter Del Vecho, and featuring the voices of Kelly Marie Tran as Raya and Awkwafina as the last dragon Sisu, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Raya and the Last Dragon” opens in U.S. theaters in March 2021.

This looks absolutely gorgeous, and very different from the standard Disney fare, in the best way.

TukTuk is going to be beloved, I think.

Here, have the poster, too.

Raya and the Last Dragon hits theaters in theory on March 12, 2021.

Marvel Comics Doubles Down on Marvel Unlimited, Changes the Release Window to 3 Months

Marvel.com:

Read your favorite Marvel comics even sooner! Starting today, October 19, Marvel Unlimited members can dive into their favorite Marvel stories faster than ever before.

From today onwards, subsequent issues of AVENGERS, IMMORTAL HULK, THOR, X-MEN, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, VENOM, and all new weekly additions, will be released digitally on Marvel Unlimited just three months after they hit shelves!

I’d imagine this is an early response to the impending 2021 re-launch of DC Universe, and their shift from a 12-month catalog window to a 6-month one.

Personally, I’m wondering if I even need to buy trades on ComiXology at all anymore…

DC Comics to Kick-Off 2021 with a Glimpse Into The…FUTURE SLATE

DC Comics:

DC is starting 2021 off with a bang, giving fans a glimpse into futures both near and far, full of current and new characters as the publisher announced plans today for DC Future State, a two-month, line-wide event beginning in January. Through February 2021, the full title lineup will feature a combination of monthly and twice-monthly oversize anthologies, as well as a monthly schedule of miniseries and one-shots.

DC Future State spotlights the World’s Greatest Super Heroes in fresh new roles, with all-new characters taking up their iconic mantles. DC Future State features an incredible array of creative talent, combining award-winning writers and artists with new voices from the worlds of TV, movies and animation. In March 2021, the regular DC title lineup resumes, continuing existing story lines from 2020 and introducing new arcs for the year.

In DC Future State, the Multiverse has been saved from the brink of destruction, but the triumph of DC’s heroes has shaken loose the very fabric of time and space! The final chapter of Dark Nights: Death Metal (on sale January 5, 2021) brings new life to DC’s Multiverse, kicking off this glimpse into the unwritten worlds of DC’s future!

Unlike many things in DC Comics these days, this Future Slate idea sounds “fun”.

Shame that it didn’t get to be the new status quo as intended, but I’ll gladly read this when it all gets collected as a big trade.

Sony Finally Unveils The PS5 User Experience

Playstation.Blog:

With less than a month until launch, we’re thrilled to share our very first look at the PlayStation 5 console’s user experience (UX). The new UX is completely centered on the player – to provide you a truly next-generation experience with deeper immersion that quickly connects you to great games and a passionate gaming community.

Who would’ve known that a UI would be so thrilling to look at?

The “Activities” function, which not only updates you on your progress while you game, but also allows you to jump in-and-out of specific areas of content is one of the most thrilling concepts I’ve seen in gaming in some time.

It could be what chapters were to DVDs, if done right. I also love the in-game help features, too. Sorry, GameFAQs, your era is over.
