Tokyopop Hints at Possible Manga Collaborations With Disney

posted on by Karen Ressler

Tokyopop teased upcoming original "manga" collaborations with Disney at its panel at Comic Con International on Saturday, though clarified that it is not yet official. The panelists shared images of Star Wars and Frozen for the announcement.

Tokyopop founder Stu Levy said that the works would be original and would possibly have Japanese artists.

Tokyopop previously published original world manga, including a series based on Star Trek, before the company shut down its North American publishing operations in May 2011.

The company also announced that it is releasing an iOS game called Sushi Cross, and that it will release M. Alice LeGrow's American manga Bizenghast as an eight-volume box set. Levy said the company is not taking publisher profits, and will also sell the box separately for those who already own the series.

Tokyopop announced at its Anime Expo panel that it is planning to begin publishing manga again in 2016. It also announced several other projects, including a comics app and video production.
