When you think “Marvel”, animation isn’t usually the first word that comes to mind. Yet, here we are, with “What If…?” about to premiere, and “I Am Groot” premiering in 2022-2023. And now it seems that Marvel is creating a mini-studio to support the influx of animated TV series on Disney+.
In a recent interview with Variety, Marvel Studios executive Victoria Alonso had this to say:
“We’re going to have our animation branch and mini studio, and there will be more to come from that as well. We’re super excited about animation, which is my first love.”Victoria Alonso on the newly-formed mini-studio for animated projects
