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!

This week saw the announcement that Disney’s Moana will be returning to theaters for a special re-release in a sing-along format; details on screenings follow below. Also from Moana comes a bonus clip from star Dwayne Johnson. Elsewhere, fans of Cartoon Network’s Regular Show will see the animated series return briefly before a special two-part series finale next week. Fans of My Little Pony, however, have a new voice to look forward to hearing in the movie treatment since Zoe Saldana has joined the cast.
