Disney and Marvel have released the theme song to Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors. Descendants star Dove Cameron performs the single titled “Born Ready” which will be featured in the animated film set to premiere on Disney Channel and Disney XD on Sunday, September 30, 2018.
Time to be a fighter
Don’t look down Keep on climbing higher
Be yourself, ’cause heroes shine in different ways
And when your voice can’t make a sound
Just know we hear you all around
Don’t need to fit into the crowd
To be a force of nature
We’re gonna be, we’re gonna be, we’re gonna be the best
They’re gonna see, they’re gonna see that we were born for this”
The single was written by Doug Rockwell and Tova Litvin.
“When we heard ‘Born Ready’ for the first time, it gave our animation team chills,” stated 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.”
The Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors voice cast includes 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. Dove Cameron provides the voice of Ghost-Spider, “a free-spirited teen who finds her calling to be a Super Hero after being bitten by a radioactive spider and gaining spider-like powers.”
Joe Quesada, Dan Buckley, Cort Lane, and Eric Radomski serve as executive producers, with Stan Lee, Sana Amanat, and Marsha Griffin co-executive producing.
The Plot: Marvel Rising is the next generation of Marvel heroes for the next generation of Marvel fans. In the animated film, Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors, powered teens Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Patriot, America Chavez, and Inferno join forces as an unlikely, but formidable crew of aspiring heroes. When a threat no one could have expected bears down on the Marvel Universe, this ragtag, untrained band of teens have no choice but to rise together and prove to the world that sometimes the difference between a “hero” and “misfit” is just in the name.
