Turner Confirms Ben 10: Omniverse for 2012

Turner Broadcasting has just sent out a Press Release confirming the 2012 launch of the Ben 10: Omniverse franchise, which aims to continue the adventures of the transforming protector of the Galaxy, Ben Tennyson, in a new series that features both the 10 and 16 year old version of the protagonist.

Slated to debut on Cartoon Network globally in Q4 of 2012, Ben 10: Omniverse will follow the adventures of 16 year old Ben as he travels back to the past in order to help his 10 year old self face a deadly new enemy.

The new series is expected to open up fresh licensing opportunities for new and existing partners, which is led by Turner CN Enterprises in the EMEA Region. The partners include master toy licensee Bandai, which is already planning to launch a dedicated Ben 10: Omniverse toy line featuring role play items, action figures, vehicles, and playsets all due to hit retail this autumn.

Alan Fenwick, vice president, Turner CN Enterprises, EMEA told Toy World: “The strength of the Ben 10 franchise has always been our unwavering commitment to investing in engaging new content that grows with our core consumer and inspires loyalty and interest amongst licensees. Ben 10: Omniverse with its new artwork, characters and engaging storylines marks another exciting chapter in Ben’s evolution and continuing success.”
