Count Care Bears as yet another franchise that will get another refresh, with a slightly unorthodox coat of new paint: streaming service Boomerang has recently unveiled the trailer for Care Bears: Unlock the Magic, which is slated to premiere exclusively on the service this coming Friday, February 1.
This new Care Bears series is produced by CloudCo Ent., and features a more rudimentary 2D art style, as opposed to the traditional 2D animation used in the original, or the 3D CG that’s been employed in a recent iteration of the franchise. But it retains much of the personality that made the Care Bears franchise so endearing: Care Bears: Unlock the Magic’s trailer showcases Funshine Bear, Cheer Bear, Grumpy Bear, Share Bear and Good Luck Bear as they embark on a new adventure, away from the comforts of Care-A-Lot, and straight into a strange world where they have to rely on their friendship, courage, and a little belly badge magic!
Care Bears: Unlock the Magic also introduces a new character: Dibble! This new addition to the Care Bears roster is a cute little “whiffle,” who are responsible for building and expanding Care-a-Lot in the Silver Lining. The whiffles are energetic and happy little creatures, but they are frequently tricked and manipulated by Care Bears’ nemesis, Bluster, and his wicked Bad Crowd.
