Comicbook.com has revealed the first trailer for Hasbro Studios and Boulder Media’s upcoming Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy animated series. The 52 eleven minute episodes will see fan favourite characters downsized for the younger demographic.
A group of young Autobots fresh from Cybertron (Hot Shot, Whirl, Medix, Hoist and Wedge), have the honor of being the first-ever class to enroll in Earth’s Rescue Bot Training Academy and learn how to become Earth heroes through hands-on experience.
Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy is set to premiere on Discovery Family sometime this fall.
The show follows Transformers: Rescue Bots, which debuted in February 2012 on The Hub/Discovery Family. After four seasons and 104 episodes, the series ended in 2016. The new series will feature some of the same characters as the old one, but the voice actors will be replaced as audio production has moved to New York City, from the original’s home of Los Angeles.
