Transformers AnimatedFollowing up from the information we bought to you earlier in the, regarding Transformers Animated, Super Hero Hype has now received a full press release.

The Transformers saga has captivated kids for more than 20 years. Coming on the heels of the highly anticipated live-action theatrical film being released July 3rd, by DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, Cartoon Network and Hasbro, Inc. are announcing today that the next generation of the epic animated series is being jointly developed by the two entities for a 2008 debut on the network in the U.S. The eye-popping 2-D animated series is a new twist on the original high-octane, animated action-adventure series with new characters alongside legends such as Optimus Prime and Megatron. Each episode will present a standalone storyline featuring everyday heroes who do good deeds that triumph over evil. "Transformers Animated" series will be co-produced by Cartoon Network Studios.

Twenty-six, half-hour episodes will be produced as well as a 90-minute special of "Transformers Animated" which is scheduled for release in early 2008 on Cartoon Network in the U.S. Matt Youngberg ("Teen Titans," "The Batman") is the supervising director, Derrick Wyatt ("Teen Titans") will provide the character designs and Sam Register ("Ben 10," "Teen Titans") will serve as executive producer of the series. Marty Isenberg ("Danny Phantom," "X-Men," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles") acts as head writer.

"We are thrilled to be working with the highly creative team at Cartoon Network on bringing the next chapter in the Transformers saga to kids and fans around the world," said Brian Goldner, Hasbro's Chief Operating Officer. "The animation style that Cartoon Network has developed really brings the lore and characters of the Transformers franchise alive in a way that has never been seen through animation."

"Transformers is a tried and true draw for our core audience," said Bob Higgins, senior vice president programming and development, Cartoon Network. "Kids love the surprise of 'More Than Meets the Eye,' combined with dynamic, clearly defined characters and epic storylines. We are thrilled to be working with Hasbro to help re-imagine this amazing franchise for a new generation of fans."

Set on Earth in the near future in Detroit, the alien Transformers are thrust into a world populated by humans and automatons. As visitors to Earth, the Transformers--Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Prowl, Bulkhead and Ratchet--work in the human world, interacting with the 'natives' in exciting and humorous ways. "Transformers Animated" has been created to showcase the heroic Autobots working together to battle the evil Decepticons and save Earth with kid-relatable plot lines filled with humor, distinctive character personalities, and dynamic action.

Hasbro and HPG, its licensing division, will expand the action-packed "Transformers Animated" series through toys, games, licensed merchandise and promotions around the world.

Transformers Animated"Cartoon Network Studios and Hasbro are co-producing a new animated Transformers series, which will premiere in January and is hoped to build on the momentum created by the highly anticipated live-action feature film opening July 3, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

There have been three other
Transformers series on Cartoon Network and eight series altogether since 1984. But this is the first one Hasbro is co-producing with Cartoon rather than its Japanese toy and production partner, Takara.

Cartoon and Hasbro executives told the trade paper that the new series,
Transformers Animated, will be significantly different from the others, adding humor, never-before-seen characters and a new premise in which the Autobots fight evil humans in superhero fashion much more frequently than they battle the Decepticons, the traditional Transformers enemy since the franchise launched as a toy line in 1984.

The animated series won't pick up on any of the themes from the Paramount/DreamWorks film, which is directed by Michael Bay.

In the new Cartoon series, the robots will have a lot more human qualities, allowing kids to identify with the characters much more than in previous series.

The plan is to produce 26 half-hour episodes, as well as a 90-minute special that will serve as the series premiere. Matt Youngberg (
Teen Titans, The Batman) is the supervising director of the series, Sam Register (Teen Titans) will serve as executive producer."

That's the story currently being reported on Sci-Fi Wire

Transformers AnimatedThe first image from Transformers Animated, the 2007/08 Transformers Cartoon, produced in the US, has appeared on the web thanks to The Allspark. Alongside the image is a short write-up of the series.

The style of drawing won't be to everyone's tastes, as it has a more arty look.

Transformers AnimatedICv2.com has a press-release regarding Transformers Animated, the new Transformers cartoon show due for release later this year in the US (2008 for the UK).

New 'Transformers' Series in the Fall
On the Cartoon Network
May 10, 2007

A new Transformers animated series, known as Transformers: Animated, will debut on the Cartoon Network this fall, just a couple of months after the appearance of the blockbuster live action Transformers movie debuts over the July 4th weekend (see "Best in Shows 2007, Part 2"). The 26-episode Transformers: Animated will be the first North American designed Transformers series since Transformers: Beast Machines, the CGI series that was produced by Canada's Mainframe Entertainment.



Beast Machines co-writer Marty Isenberg is functioning as the editor/chief writer for the new Transformers: Animated series -- something that hardcore Transformers fans will not be too happy about (Isenberg's Beast Machines co-writer Robert Skir once had to cancel a convention appearance due to death threats from irate fans). Matt Youngberg (Teen Titans, The Batman) will be the new series' supervising director while Derrick Wyatt (Teen Titans, Legion of Superheroes) is providing the character designs and Cartoon Network VP Sam Register will produce.



Little is known about the new series except for the fact that it will take place in a future era during which humans and robots both inhabit the Earth. Optimus Prime (supposedly now a fire truck) and Megatron will be featured in the new series, which reportedly features a brand new look for the long-lived Transformers characters.



It's interesting that they state Optimus Prime is now a fire truck, as this is the first bit of character information (for the Transformers) annouced. David Kaye is rumoured to be playing Prime, so it will be intesting to hear what he has to say at BotCon.

TFWorld, who were first to spot the story, have also found and mirroed a teaser image.

Transformers AnimatedThe new series has a good deal of talent onboard, including Sam Register, exec producer of Ben 10, Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi and Teen Titans; Vincent Aniceto, line producer (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Power Puff Girls); and Marty Isenberg, head writer (Danny Phantom, A.T.O.M., X-Men, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). In addition, Derrick Wyatt, character designer for smash hit Teen Titans, will take the role of lead designer.

The new 2D style that will be the show's trademark harks back to the original 20-year-old cartoon, but according to ER, the new Transformers has a different audience in mind.


That's just part of the quote on C21 Media which The Allspark found earlier today.

Transformers AnimatedUK TF fan Colin Warhurts has updated his SiabsFilms website with some information regarding the next Transformers animated series. The information is from the UK broacasting industry magazine called Broadcast. The image states that the series is coming in 2008 and will feature twenty six thirty minute episodes and one ninty minute episode. You can view the image here.

Looking at the logo, and the information on the article, it confirms that the show will indeed be US based (26 episodes rather than 52), the logo itself is very Toonami style. The name Transformers Animated may well be the final name for the show. Official word will most probably come out at BotCon during the Hasbro panel.

You can find a list of her credits, which include animation voice acting, computer games as well as live action films, on her website here. Personally, we recognise her voice most from Rikku in FInal Fantasy X and X-2

Transformers Animated TFW2005 have posted some rumours which they have received regarding the cartoon show currently being called Transformers Heroes. The rumours are a polar opposite of the rumours Seibertron recently printed, so whether either of these reports are accurate very much remains to be seen.

The rumous TFW have are

- Animation studio NOT Gonzo ... rather it's Answer and Mook. Whether they're associated with Gonzo, no idea.
- Not "anime"
- Only TF related writer that's even submitted details/info is a guy who did some story editting on Beast Machines (ie: NO BEAST WARS WRITERS)
- Character design ... guy from Teen Titans, Legion of Superheroes, Fosters...
- Director ... did work on Teen Titans, X-Men Evolution
- Cartoon Network is partner in the show, not just the airing network

Transformers AnimatedSeibertron had a story on their website yesterday with some rumours surrounding the next Transformers series, referred to as Transformers: Heroes. The rumour takes some of the information Brian Savage posted on the GI-Joe forum regarding Hasbro's company direction, as well as stating Japanese animation house Gonzon, responsible for the Transformers: Galaxy Force (Transformers: Cybertron) animation will once again be animating the story. This time, if the rumour is true, some of the Transformers: Beast Wars story team will be involved in the writing of the script. This last part also falls in line with the information that Susan Blu is involved in the new Transformers cartoon line.


"GroundPounder1967 has sent us the following information concerning the 'Transformers Heroes' cartoon series currently in development by Hasbro.

Hasbro has signed off on Gonzo to animate the new TF cartoon. Hasbro has been happy with their work on Transformers Cybertron and GI Joe Sigma Six and wants to keep that partnership going. And like GI Joe, this will be written in the States but animated overseas. (Much like how TFG1 was produced back in the day.)

A story bible was written and has meet with a lot of approval from everyone involved, but no story editor has been chosen yet.

Right now everyone there is excited about the movie, and Brian may well sign off on the idea of hiring one (or both) of the Beast Wars guys to showrun TFH since he knows how good they are at telling a great story, which is his main agenda right now. His primary goal as CEO is to turn Hasbro from a toy company that owns intellectual properties into an IP company that also makes toys, and he knows that quality stories will bring that about. Now that Hasbro is making Marvel toys, look for a renewed relationship with Marvel Comics on that front as well. *ahem*ROM*cough*"
