Cartoon Network announced that they are rebooting the Ben 10 franchise. The 9 year old franchise will have a new animated series coming out in the fall of 2016 with a 2017 North America release. Returning the franchise is Man of Action for executive production while John Fang will come in as a supervising producer. Cartoon Network Studios will do the animation for the series. Shedding off the old series which include 4 animated series as well as multiple movies, Cartoon Network wants to take a fresh new spin for the franchise for kids.
In a released statement the Cartoon Network Chief Content Officer Rob Sorcher said, “We decided it was time to introduce Ben to a new generation of kids…Ben 10 has been an overwhelming success story across all media platforms, and we know kids around the world will be eager to see the reinvention of this beloved character.” The $4.5 Billion Dollars (USD) the series generated over the past near decade confirms it as the property span video games, toys, television, and clothing. While people maybe skeptical of the reboot, the past series dredged on in story lines, and contains too much fractioning to maintain, so starting clean makes sense. With that said, yea, more remakes!
