Nickelodeon’s girls action series Mysticons gets first trailer
When we last spoke about Mysticons, it was a boys action show headed up by Nelvana and Michael Eisner’s Topps Company/Tornate. The three companies are still involved with the show, but it’s switched audiences to girls to capitalize on recent trends like The Hunger Games and Wonder Woman. The series follows the epic tale of four unexpected heroes who transform into legendary warriors and undertake a mythic quest to save the world.
We now have gotten our first trailer for the retooled series:
Mysticons is centered around four regular kids in the quiet suburb of Castletown who are called into action to double as legendary heroes, known as Mysticons. After discovering a powerful mystical tome, the four friends transform into oath-bonded warriors who leave their regular life of homework, sports and video games to battle fire-breathing dragons, evil knights and barbaric orcs, led by a trio of evil warlords set on destroying all of mankind.
Mysticons is set to launch sometime in August on Nickelodeon and according to the trailer, Nicktoons. In Canada, the series will air sometime this fall on YTV. Playmates is designing a range of toys based on the series, and Dark Horse expects to starting publishing a comic adaptation next summer.
