Speaking to the press, Boulder Media Studio has confirmed working on two new Transformers cartoons.
While the title of one show remains unnamed, the second show is titled as Rescue Bots Academy. Along with the two new Transformers shows, the studio will also develop a new Littelest Pet Shop series and a series based on Micronauts for Hasbro Studios.
“The studio behind TV animation shows for the likes of Disney, Nickelodeon and BBC is moving up a gear. They’ve announced this morning that they’re constantly on the look-out for new talented staff and plan to open a second studio space in Dublin.
The Studio, whose current slate includes animation for ‘Transformers’, ‘Little Pet Shop’ and ‘Rescue Bots Academy’ and ‘Micronauts’ for Hasbro Studios, as well as ‘Danger Mouse’ and ‘Dorothy and the Wonders of Oz’ (Warner Brothers), is ramping up to deliver innovative animation and storytelling across multiple formats and genres.”
Rescue Bots Academy is clearly sounding as though it is the spiritual successor to the original Transformers: Rescue Bots; loved by young fans across the globe. The show’s title is also the title of Episode 71 of RB.
We are yet to find out about the other Transformers Animated Series which could very well be a replacement show for slightly older kids. Transformers: Robots In Disguise currently caters to that specific segment.
This news was in development for quite a while and TFW2005 was quick to pick up on the info which trickled on. The first official announcement came around March and it was not too long ago that we found out that several job openings were available at the studio to work on a Transformers Franchise related project.
There were many speculations based on the news but now we know.. and knowing is half the battle!
