Turning Mecard gets CG reboot and dinosaur spinoff


While the rest of the world is just getting into Sono Kong and Choirock’s Turning Mecard franchise, its home land of Korea is in full swing. The companies introduced a new duo of animated productions to expand the series in 2017 and beyond at the Korea Character Licensing Fair in Seoul last weekend. The new material adds to an already robust franchise consisting of a 52 episode first season, the 52 episode second series Turning Mecard W, and the feature film, Turning Mecard W: Revival of Black Mirror.

First up is Turning Mecard R, a reboot of the franchise set to debut in September. Chan (or Jason, depending on where you live) and his friends are back in a brand new fully CG-animated adventure. Sono Kong will manufacture a line of transforming remote controlled Mechanimal cars. The series will run for 26 12-minute episodes.

For those that prefer 2D animation, this new spinoff might be for you. Launching sometime later this year, Dinosaur Mecard is a completely different take on the formula. The show will claim that dinosaurs haven’t actually been extinct for 65 million years, some just transformed into Mechanimals. Starring a new cast of characters, the series will run for 52 30-minute episodes.

Here are some photos from the Korea Character Licensing Fair. The primary focus was on Turning Mecard R
