Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens! Premieres this March on CN

Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens! Premieres this March on CN

Ben 10 fans are in for a treat this march, as Cartoon Network has picked the days between March 09 and March 24 to be the international premiere of a new CG animated Ben 10 movie entitled Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens!

Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens follows the young Ben Tennyson as he joins an intergalactic weekend camp called the Total Alien Immersion training program, which he found to be disappointing, especially when the program had him sent back to Earth struck in his alien forms. This wouldn’t be a problem if he only had to worry about his job protecting earth from evil aliens, but it turns out that an evil Mechamorph Warrior called “Retaliator” is hunting and planning to take Ben down, after mistaking him for another evil alien.

On Friday, November 25th, Cartoon Network introduced a game changer: Ben 10 / Generator Rex: Heroes United, an hour-long special event of out-of-this-world proportions! The special brought Ben Tennyson of Ben 10 fame over to the universe of Rex Salazar, of Generator Rex fame. There was a smash up, a team up, and then a battle to end all battles with the malevolent Alpha Nanite; an evil, twisted mirror of the Nanites that Rex utilizes for all of his builds. For months we’ve been waiting to watch. For hours we’ve been watching, rewatching, and reviewing what we’ve just seen. So what’s the final verdict? Who won? Will there be another? And, overall, how did we rate Heroes United?

Today is Thanksgiving, but tomorrow we give thanks! On Friday, November 25th, at 7pm, Cartoon Network is ready to present Ben 10 / Generator Rex: Heroes United. Needless to say, we’re a bit excited for the premiere. I mean, c’mon! It’s both of Man of Action’s biggest superstars, Ben Tennyson and Rex Salazar, teaming up and… well, also beating each other senseless. Of course, we have to see who would win in a fight, right?

The countdown to Heroes United

It’s days now. Just a handful of days. It’s just months, it’s not weeks, it’s not “just an idea” or some sorta sick April Fool’s joke (cough, cough) Heroes United is just a few days away from its November 25th premiere. For the first time ever (and, note, no one ever said “only time”) Ben from Ben 10: Ultimate Alien is teaming up with Rex from Generator Rex in an hour long crossover event. This special even has us not caring about Thanksgiving or Christmas!! Actually, that’s not true, at all… we’re excited for both! …Maybe THEY, too, should crossover, in some sorta …Thanksmas? ….Ahh, forget it. In the meantime, enjoy these new screen grabs from Ben 10 / Generator Rex Heroes United!

We’re past teasers. We’re past trailers. With just a little more than one week before the official unveiling of the Cartoon Network one hour special, Heroes United, we’re now up to showing full clips! With Ben 10 Ultimate Alien and Generator Rex meeting for the very first time, the Man of Action made super heroes are bringing their A-Game to the crossover, teaming up and battling up to make sure audiences get their excitement to the max. We’ve already posted bits and pieces about how Ben Tennyson goes Humungousaur on Generator Rex. We’ve also had an indepth look at how Ben, Wrath, and Lodestar are all unknowns in the world of Generator Rex. But pictures can’t quite do it justice, so lets get to the footage!

For weeks now, we’ve been anxiously looking forward to the first ever meeting of Cartoon Network superstars Ben Tennyson and Rex Salazar, aka Ben 10 and Generator Rex. As heroes in each of their respective shows, we could only imagine that they’d both meet up, shake hands, then chance on after some of their teamed villains – but that’s not exactly what the Man of Action icons have planned. …and now, we’re even more anxious for the November 25th special to premiere! Generator Rex could have an advantage, with a body full of nanites ready to form giant, pummeling hammers. But, thankfully for Ben, he didn’t leave his Ultrimatrix on his world, giving him the ability to shape shift into his Humungousaur form. Humungousaur versus Generator Rex? Sounds like a fight we’d like to get a preview of!

Our pal Ben Tennyson has been through a number of changes through out the years, even beyond the ability to shape shift into various alien forms. One of the most damaging, which occurred between the Ben 10: Alien Force and Ben 10: Ultimate Alien era, was having his secret identity exposed to the world. Now, wherever he or one of his alien forms goes, everyone knows who is really beneath it all. But then, somehow, Ben shoots over to an incredibly similar, but different Earth. Here, in New York City, there appears to be an alien threat that Ben must deal with, along with Humungousaur, Lodestar, Diamondhead, Rath and others. The problem is, no one recognizes the alien forms. Worse yet, no one recognizes Ben. …and who the heck is this Generator Rex guy…?

We’ve set our DVR, but we’re not entirely sure the technology is powerful enough. Whatever the case, on Friday, November 25th, we’ll risk it, for that is the day that Cartoon Network brings us the Man of Action teamup we’ve been waiting for, Ben 10 and Generator Rex: Heroes United. Since originally hearing of the project a few months back, we’ve only received bits and pieces as far as what we can expect. Thankfully, information from the San Diego Comic Con, and more recently the New York Comic Con, have been much more forthcoming, particularly noting the tagline: there’s more than one way to go hero.

Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens brings CG Ben 10 to Cartoon Network

Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens brings CG Ben 10 to Cartoon Network

During the heydays of this year’s Comic-Con 2011, we scoured a lot of great info about the upcoming world of animation. Amongst the biggest revelations was Cartoon Network’s latest Ben 10 adventure; Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens, an entirely CG rendered made for TV movie. Still somewhat early in development, the CN promises this computer animated cartoon will be ready for our TV-watching enjoyment next year. Perhaps most surprising, and maybe even a little exciting, is the decision to go before Ben 10: Ultimate Alien and Ben 10: Alien Force, and create a “prequel” of sorts during the original Ben 10 era; Ben, Gwen, and Grandpa Max solving cases with the original Omnitrix, just like the old days — and complete with all the original voice cast! Check out these teaser screen shots of the project in motion.
