MIP Junior Conference 2015 (an Expo dedicated to all-things children’s media in Europe) is happening right now in Cannes, France. One of the highlights of the show is Hasbro executive vice president and chief content officer Stephen Davis delivering a Keynote speech on the company’s transformation into a 360-degree entertainment provider.
Of course Hasbro was at the show floor advertising their upcoming shows. A friend of TFW2005 picked up a brochure highlighting the number of episodes planned for various animated shows and among them was Transformers Robots In Disguise. He also brought us some info to be shared with the 2005 Board Members.
The episode count for the show is noted as 45; making the Second Season of the show just 19 Episodes. Prior to the 1st season of the show, it was announced that the show is planned for three seasons with 26 episodes each. However, based on the new info Season 2 is seven episodes shorter than what was originally planned and Season 3 seemingly omitted.
List of episodes for Transformers: Rescue Bots is 104 within 4 Seasons (26 Episodes each).
A trailer for Transformers: Robots In Disguise was also shown, but it contains footage from the first season with a new narrator reading a summary of the 1st season. TF: RID trailer shown at MIP Junior Conference 2015 has referred the Decepticons of the show not as Decepticons but as “A new faction of Decepticons”.
There is plenty more to be shared. We will bring you more news from the Conference Floor, pretty soon. Until then, check out a scan of the brochure and other details, after the jump.
More details from Hasbro Studios:
List of episodes for Hasbro’s super hit animated series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is 143, which makes sense since at the end of Season 5 (currently broadcasted) the episode count is 117 and Season 6 is planned with another 26 episodes.
All new series titled Blazing Team (bunch of kids saving the world using martial arts… and Yo-Yos) is planned with 52 episodes spanning 2 seasons, Littlest Pet Shop is green-lit for a 4th Season with 26 episodes, Jem And The Holograms is not a new series but rather a re-broadcast of original 65 episodes to promote the upcoming Jon Chu live action movie.
Strangely, Transformers: Robots In Disguise is getting the least amount of episodes when comparing with other Hasbro Studio shows.
