As if I couldn’t love Kristen Bell any more.

Bell recently got into character as Anna to leave a voicemail for one of her biggest fans. Six year old Avery Huffman was recently diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma which is an inoperable brain tumor. Her parents have been documenting her battle on CaringBridge and with the hashtag #AveryStrong and caught the attention of Bell. In the voicemail, Anna appoints Avery as an “Honorary Princess of Arendelle.”

I think I have something in my eye. Check out Avery’s reaction to the voicemail after the break.

Neon-Genesis-Evangelion-train

Inspired by the mechas from Neon Genesis Evangelion, Japanese train operator JR West is giving one of their super-fast bullet trains a mecha makeover. The design for his 500 Type EVA train will match the mecha Evangelion Unit-01 both inside and out.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Neon Genesis Evangelion, the blazing purple and green makeover is scheduled to start in autumn 2015 with completion in March 2017. This date also marks the 40th anniversary of the Sanyo Shinkansen line which connects Osaka and Fukuoka. Aside from the wild “party” decorations for these two momentous occasions, JR West also plans to sell commemorative memorabilia, with Evangelion animator Hideaki Anno supervising the project.

Saturday, September 26th marks the debut of the new Guardians of the Galaxy animated series on Disney XD and we finally have an idea of what to expect. According to ComingSoon:

“Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy” follows the newly-formed team who finds a strange artifact keyed only to the DNA of Peter Quill. Upon opening it, Quill unleashes a treasure map leading to a powerful weapon known as the Cosmic Seed which is capable of giving birth to the next universe. It’s up to the Guardians to find, protect and ultimately destroy the Cosmic Seed in order to keep it out of the hands of those who would abuse its power, from galactic big boss Thanos, to the conniving brothers the Collector and the Grandmaster, to a resurrected Ronan, to the ultimate trickster, Loki, in order to save the universe.

Will Friedle (“Boy Meets World”) as the brash adventurer Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Trevor Devall (“Johnny Test”) as fan-favorite Rocket Raccoon, Vanessa Marshall (“Star Wars Rebels”) as the enigmatic, expert fighter Gamora, David Sobolov (“Transformers: Prime”) as the rough-edged warrior Drax the Destroyer, Kevin Michael Richardson (“The Cleveland Show”) as tree-like humanoid Groot and James Arnold Taylor (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”) as leader of the space pirates Yondu and the telepathic dog, Cosmo
