Are you going to be in the Providence, Rhode Island area over the weekend of September 8-10th? If so, it might be worth your while to visit HASCON, Hasbro’s first convention. The company is promising loads of neat events, including panel discussions with toys designers, show runners and comic creators, Magic: The Gathering tournaments, performances from musical acts like Flo Rida, meet and greets with voice actors, and a whole lot more. One of the cooler things to go do is visit the panels where you’ll see some of Hasbro Studios’ future animated series. HASCON will host the first public debut of two re-imagined classics.
On Saturday at 11AM in the FANmily Stage Room, attendees will get a glimpse at the all-new Littlest Pet Shop animated series:
Totally paw-some! Come get a sneak peek of Paw-Tucket, the brand NEW world of Littlest Pet Shop! Be the first group of fans to see a full episode of the new series launching in 2018, Littlest Pet Shop, and stay for a chance to have your questions answered. Ever wondered who comes up with all the pet names? Just exactly what inspires the minds behind those who designs the pets? How do the stories come to life? It’s bound to be a purrfectly pet-lovin’ good time.
On Sunday, Hasbro will debut their new Netflix series Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters:
In 2017, the iconic Hasbro toy brand Stretch Armstrong will stretch onto television screens for the first time with an all-new look in an animated series from Hasbro Studios. The animated action/comedy series explores the life of an over scheduled teenager named Jake Armstrong and his two best friends. The trio is accidentally exposed to an experimental chemical, leading them to become Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters — a team of stretchable superheroes. Join the cast of Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters for a behind the scenes look at the upcoming 26-episode series, Hasbro Studios’ first original programming for Netflix. See the upcoming animated series come to life and hear from voice talent for the show.
The panel will happen at 4PM in the FANmily Stage Room. An autograph session will occur at the same place an hour later.
HASCON will also host a sneak peek at season 8 of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, season 2 and the theatrical short for Hanazuki, and Transformers: Titans Return. For a full list of festivities, check out the convention’s schedule.
