Walt Disney Japan has announced that they will be collaborating with Toei Animation in producing a Japanese version of Marvel’s most popular team of superheroes, the Avengers.
According to the press release, the new series will be titled Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers and it will be the first Japanese Marvel TV anime series targeted for the boys age 6-12 years old.
It “will revolve around how The Avengers with the help of Spider-Man and a group of teens, will harness their respective fighting skills and superhuman powers to foil Loki’s scheme to take over the world.”
Bandai will handle the character merchandising of the series.
The series is scheduled to premiere next spring.
In an all out battle instigated by Loki, most of Earth’s super heroes and villains have been trapped inside disks—a new technology originally developed as portable security devices for capturing and securing villains around the world. The Avengers team up with a group of teens to reclaim the scattered disk, and using their special abilities and techniques (waza), thwart Loki’s evil schemes to save the Earth from ultimate destruction
