Robots in Disguise (2015) airing on Cartoon Network!

10.07.2014 – Celebrating “Thrilling 30” years as an iconic brand from a 1980s cartoon Transformers has become a global franchise enjoyed by long time fans and younger audience that has a blockbuster billion dollar film in Age of Extinction.

Last Comic-Con International (SDCC) Hasbro teased a trailer of a new animated series that would possible continue the Transformers Prime series to new heights.

The reveal what would be the titled “Robot in Disguise” not to be mistaken with the 2001 series.

They also teased a short trailer featuring Bumblebee in the spotlight with new faces that he will lead to new adventures.

The new “Robots in Disguise” have the aesthetics and designs of characters from Transformers Prime, but will this actually continue what the previous series has ended?

A few days earlier Hasbro just revealed the full trailer which shows Bumblebee being hunted by Optimus Prime’s ghost? Just like the teaser from Comic-Con this time showing new scenes featuring a new team led by Bumblebee.

Optimus Prime voiced by Peter Cullen appears to take a back seat in this new series that puts Bumblebee front and center with an untested team and the trailer can be seen below:

Press release was also announced more details about the show that will air on Cartoon Network in the US:

"Robots in Disguise begins a brand new chapter in storytelling, filled with great humor, lots of fun adventure and animated in a cooler, lighter, brighter style that we know kids are going to really love," said Stephen Davis, president of Hasbro Studios and global entertainment & licensing for Hasbro, Inc. "We have spent a lot of time listening to what kids like about Transformers and they haven't been shy about giving us their opinions. And we have listened! Robots in Disguise is reflective of all that we have learned in our conversations with kids. It has the most relatable Autobot and Decepticon characters we have ever ‘Rolled Out' in a Transformers animated series."

The mission begins as Bumblebee must step up to be leader in the years after we left the Autobots in Transformers Prime. Summoned by Optimus Prime to save Earth from a new faction of Decepticons, Bumblebee puts his light-hearted mettle to the test after assembling a rouge team of young Autobots action heroes. Bumblebee must balance his job fighting off evil with being equal parts squad leader and coach to a rascally band that needs constant coaxing to learn how to work together. The results are comical when the cool rebel, elite guard cadet, bombastic dinobot and exciteable mini-con must balance team-building with chasing and capturing their new enemies in every episode packed full of action, fun and adventure.

Transformers Robots in Disguise set to be aired in early 2015 on Cartoon Network, but would this also reach the South East Asian region? More news will be announced soon once the show gets aired in North America.
