Babymetal will Fight for Heavy Metal in Forthcoming Animated Action Series from Warner Bros. and Amuse, Inc.
Warner Bros.’ digital studio Blue Ribbon Content and Japanese entertainment company Amuse Inc.’s American subsidiary, Amuse USA, have teamed up to bring you an all new animated series starring Babymetal. Produced by Babymetal manager, Key Kobayashi (better known as Kobametal), the shortform series is currently in development and will feature a blend of live action and antimation.
When heavy metal comes under attack, Su-Metal, Yuimetal and Moametal are assembled by the god Kitsune to form a warrior band. In this enchanted realm, Babymetal must save and redefine the genre they love.
Warner Bros. president Sam Register commented "Babymetal have to be seen to be believed — a mind-blowing, fun combination of pop vocals, heavy metal music and dance choreography brought to life by three incredibly talented teenage stars. We are huge fans here at Blue Ribbon Content and are extremely excited to help bring the Babymetal phenomenon to U.S. audiences through this upcoming digital series."
"We are grateful for Warner Bros. and Blue Ribbon Content's interest in Babymetal, and to be moving onward with the project. We are very much looking forward to working on this project with Sam and his team, and hope everyone will enjoy our completed work,” added Amuse, Inc./Amuse USA president Tatsuro Hatanaka.
Since the series is still in the development stages, there is no expected release date yet. Stay tuned for more updates on when and how to watch the series.
