Official quotes from Marvel and Funko
“Telling Marvel stories in the Funko Pop! aesthetic is a special kind of magic unlike anything we’ve ever done. These shorts are both hilarious and action-packed – and irresistibly adorable too. Really, I think all audiences will love them,” said Cort Lane, Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Animation and Family Entertainment.
“We are beyond excited to bring our Pop! Vinyl to life by collaborating with Marvel,” said Mark Robben, Funko’s Director of Marketing. “We hope fans enjoy these short films as much as they do collecting Pop!, and hopefully we’ll be able to create many more.”
