Cartoon Network Reboots Max Steel
FreeMantle Media and Mattel have recently announced that Cartoon Network will launch a new animated version of Max Steel for their Latin American channel. The new series uses CGI and will be produced by both Mattel and Freemantle, while worldwide distribution of the series (excluding the US) will be handled by FME, along with the home entertainment rights.
In case you don’t remember, Max Steel follows the story of an earth bound teenager named Maxwell McGrath and his friend Steel. At the tender age of 16, Maxwell has discovered that he has the uncanny ability to generate “turbo energy”, which has has always had trouble controlling until he met Steel, who is an alien “war machine” that enables Maxwell to harness the turbo energy along with his own, in order to create a unified super being named Max Steel.
The 26×30 minute series is scheduled to launch in 2013 on Cartoon Network channels all throughout Latin America, particularly Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, and Chile.
