Hasbro Micronauts series in the works
New TV series based on mini superhero figure line set to launch in 2019
Hasbro is planning a new animated series to hit TV screens in 2019 based on its Micronauts line of collectables.
Originally launched by toy company Mego in the mid-70s, Hasbro now owns the popular mini superhero brand, and this animation will precede a live-action movie pegged for 2020.
The new 26 x 22" animated series will be aimed at six to 11-year-olds and is entering production later this year.
A blurb on the latest Hasbro Studios sales guide outlines the series: “When fate brings an unlikely team of alien space explorers to earth in pursuit of the evil Baron Karza, they make a shocking discovery—on our world they are the size of action figures! The Micronauts are small heroes in a big world but the stakes are higher than ever as their miniaturized size presents dangerous obstacles at every turn. Fortunately, they forge an alliance with teenager Cameron Ruck, who will join them in their pursuit of justice. Although the Micronauts are small in stature, their bravery and adventurous spirits remain larger than life.”
