Following Stan Lee’s recent appearance at Wizard World Anaheim Comic Con, Stan and his company POW! Entertainment (PK: POWN) are pleased to confirm today two new exciting announcements for the company. POW! Entertainment’s project with Walt Disney Studios Time Jumper, the multi-platform digital comic book about a college student who must protect the time travel device his father invented, has been made available on the PlayStation network as of March 31. This will allow audiences around the world to access the 10 episode compilation for $9.99 and play it on their PlayStation 3 or any PlayStation portable device.
POW! Entertainment is also confirming a first ever theatre/rock opera show, which will be an original concept from Stan Lee titled The Yin and Yang Battle of Tao. The storyline for the show is currently being written, and there are more details to come.
Stan Lee had anticipated being able to make these two announcements from the press room this past weekend in Anaheim, but this was not possible following his appearance. Stan was inundated with questions and other requests from the attendees, making it impossible for him to visit the press room to make these announcements from POW! Entertainment.
Gill Champion, President of POW! Entertainment said, “We are delighted to share today these two exciting new developments from POW! Entertainment. We believe it re-enforces our commitment to being a well-rounded multimedia entertainment company. We are excited that the life cycle for Stan Lee’s Time Jumper will now expand into the gaming realm. We are also looking forward to moving into the theatre world with our own original live show.”
Stan Lee added, “Thank you to all of the fans who attended this weekend. My only disappointment was that I wasn’t able to share these two projects with all of you in person. Here’s to even greater things in the future!”
The Walt Disney Company is a minority shareholder in POW! Entertainment.
