Last week, we got our first look at”Descendants” star Dove Cameron’s theme song for the upcoming animated feature titled “Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors,” coming to Disney Channel and Disney XD. Today, we got a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this uplifting theme.
Cameron, who voices Ghost Spider in the animated feature, discusses what the song means to her and how music can help young people as they grow up.

“Marvel Rising” is a brand new, multi-platform animation franchise that launched earlier this year with “Marvel Rising: Initiation,” a series of six four-minute digital shorts focusing on Cameron’s character.
This new animated film will bring together an unlikely, yet formidable, group of heroes that includes Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Patriot, America Chavez, and Inferno. While all of these characters may be familiar to hardcore Marvel fans, only Quake has made an appearance in mainstream entertainment as a main character in “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Squirrel Girl is set to appear in the upcoming “Marvel’s New Warriors” as well.
Cameron will be joined by Chloe Bennet and Milana Vayntrub, who will voice Quake and Squirrel Girl respectively, the same characters they portray in live-action form. This will not be the first foray into the Marvel Universe for Cameron either. She played the villainous Ruby in “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
“Marvel characters are so relatable because they live in our world and face the same challenges we do,” said Cort Lane, Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Animation & Family Entertainment. “So I’m very excited that our Marvel Rising team of heroes is so inclusive, reflecting characters with different backgrounds, particularly a set of strong female leads that our young audience can connect with.”
“Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors” will premiere simultaneously on Disney Channel and Disney XD on Sunday, September 30.
