As many of you already know, it’s finally time for New York Comic Con, which will run from now until Sunday, October 11. While we’ve got our own things planned for the con, our friends at Rooster Teeth will also be on the scene to promote their hit animated series RWBY: Volume 3.
“Rooster Teeth is ecstatic for the return of RWBY and the upcoming premiere of Volume 3! We couldn’t be prouder of the team and everything they’ve accomplished,” said Gray G. Haddock, head of Rooster Teeth Animation. “We’re constantly amazed at how the series has been embraced by the audience — we owe so much to the fans that have been there from the beginning, and our community can’t wait to welcome all the new fans joining us from overseas as RWBY Volume 1 is released in Japan by WB this November. A sincere thanks to everyone who has supported the show and the crew this year – we can’t wait to share the further adventures of team RWBY with you!”
During tonight’s panel — taking place in room 1A10 from 8 PM to 9 PM–the cast and crew of RWBY, including Miles Luna, Kerry Shawcross, Gray Haddock, Lindsay Jones and Barbara Dunkelman, will give fans their first look at the premiere episode of Volume 3. The folks behind the show will also be sharing exciting news, behind-the-scenes stories, and answering fan questions. If you’re unable to attend the panel, but are still at the con and want to meet some of the cast, don’t worry. Lindsay Barbara, Kerry, Miles and Gray will all be at Rooster Teeth’s booth (#2311).
We also got our hands on an exclusive clip (above) from the first episode. In it, we see team RWBY go head-to-head with some pretty tough competition at the Vytal Festival tournament. On the upcoming season, Ruby Weiss, Blake and Yang will brawl their way to the top alongside new fighters from around Remnant. It definitely sounds like we have a lot to look forward to.
The episode itself will premiere on RoosterTeeth.com Saturday, October 24 for “sponsors” and on the following day, October 25, for the rest of the world. If you’ve yet to finish the first two seasons, those are already available on Rooster Teeth’s site, Netflix, or Blu-Ray/DVD.
Are you excited for season 3? What did you think of the clip? Let us know in the comments below.
