An article posted on variety.com has revealed some very interesting new details about the new Transformers cartoon set to launch on The Hub in spring 2015. Of the new details, we have learned the title of this new cartoon, which will be Transformers: Robots In Disguise. We might have had a hunch this was the case back when we reported of Hasbro’s trademark application for “Robots In Disguise.
Also included is a new image of the animated designs of some characters including Bumblebee, Sideswipe, and Fixit. With this image we’re starting to see the aesthetic of this new show develop, which as a mix of Transformers Prime and Animated in the characters.
The article went on to describe the new animated show:[The] show takes place years after “Transformers Prime,” when Bumblebee is summoned to save Earth from a new faction of Decepticons and assembles a rogue team of young Autobots that includes a rebel bad boy bot, an elite guard cadet, a bombastic Dinobot and hyperactive Mini-Con to capture their new enemies.
Each new bot is a fully capable action hero but inexperienced in working together in a team, forcing Bumblebee to become both squad leader and coach, Hasbro said.
The show will feature voice actors such as Darren Criss, Constance Zimmer, Mitchell Whitfield and Ted McGinley. Also from the article: “[the] creative team includes kids programming vets Jeff Kline (“Transformers Prime”) as executive producer; producer Adam Beechen (“The Adventures of Chuck and Friends”); and Steven Melching, a writer on “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” who will serve as the show’s story editor.”
Wow! What do you think of this news? Does the Fandom need to come up with another abbreviation for all of these Robots In Disguise toy lines? Are you excited for the direction? Discuss it all with the forums link below!
