It’s your one-stop shop for news regarding cartoons, anime, and animated web series. We’re talking movies, TV shows, digital shorts, and everything in between!

In addition to a boatload of previously posted news from this week, we have quite a few tidbits from some major animated properties! First up is the promised clip from tonight’s episode of Star Wars Rebels that reveals a new villainous character. And while it’s not official yet, it looks like Netflix’s Voltron Legendary Defender will return for Season 3 this September (!) after some bonus content released this spring, with a possible contract for many more seasons to come!
