Today Marvel Music and Walt Disney Records debuted “Born Ready”, the theme song for the upcoming animated feature film Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors, sung by the voice of Ghost Spider herself, Dove Cameron.
“When we heard ‘Born Ready’ for the first time, it gave our animation team chills,” said Cort Lane, Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Animation & Family Entertainment. “It had all the swagger, friendship and heroic aspirations of the Marvel Rising characters. Dove’s fierceness and talent embodies everything the song is about, and her amazing performance made ‘Born Ready’ something very special.”
“Born Ready” was performed by Dove Cameron, written by Doug Rockwell and Tova Litvin, produced by Doug Rockwell, and published by Touchstone Pictures Music & Songs, Inc. (ASCAP) and Marvel Comics Music, Inc. (ASCAP) / Buena Vista Music Company (BMI) and Marvel Superheroes Music (BMI). The single is now available both for download and on streaming services.
Marvel Rising is a multi-platform animated series intent on bringing the next generation of diverse, young Marvel heroes to a new generation of Marvel fans. It started with a series of six digital shorts, Marvel Rising: Initiation, featuring Gwen Stacy – aka Ghost Spider – being falsely accused of a crime and trying to clear her name. Her father, an NYPD captain, is leading the investigation. Other young super heroes, including Squirrel Girl, Ms. Marvel, and Quake, are also after Ghost Spider. These shorts are a lead-in to Secret Warriors, so naturally their purpose is to set up the story for the film. You can watch all six shorts in one video below.
Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors centers around a team-up between Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Patriot, America Chavez, and Inferno. Their quest to discover the truth in Initiation revealed a much bigger threat, which must be dealt with in Secret Warriors.
Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors stars Chloe Bennet as Quake, Milana Vayntrub as Squirrel Girl, Kathreen Khavari as Ms. Marvel, Kamil McFadden as Patriot, Tyler Posey as Inferno, BooBoo Stewart as Exile, Cierra Ramirez as America Chavez, Kim Raver as Captain Marvel, Ming-Na Wen as Hala, and Dee Bradley Baker as Tippy Toe & Lockjaw. It is executive produced by Joe Quesada, Dan Buckley, Cort Lane, and Eric Radomski; co-executive produced by Stan Lee, Sana Amanat, and Marsha Griffin. It was written by Mairghread Scott.
Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors will premiere simultaneously on Disney Channel and Disney XD on Sunday, September 30.
