Hasbro’s MICRONAUTS Are Getting an Animated Series

Although the Micronauts toy line dates back over four decades, it’s never been adapted as a film or a TV series. However, Hasbro has grand ambitions to create its own cinematic universe, and a live-action Micronauts movie was recently scheduled for 2020. But first, it looks like the Micronauts will get their very own cartoon ahead of their big screen debut.

Via Newsarama, Hasbro has revealed details about the Micronauts animated series that will begin production next year. According to Hasbro, the 26-episode first season will follow the titular group of alien space explorers and heroes as they arrive on Earth and discover that they are minuscule on this planet—basically, the size of their own action figures. The Micronauts will team up with a teenager named Cameron Ruck as they take on their nemesis, Baron Karza, as well as otherworldly threats that may have escaped notice by the rest of humanity. The series is expected to premiere in 2019, but a network isn’t currently attached to the project.

Hasbro also released a few images of concept art from the Micronauts TV series, which feature the heroes on Earth as they take their battle to someone’s lawn, while using a few Earth toys of their own. But since the show hasn’t officially kicked off production, it may be several months before a trailer debuts.

The Micronauts toyline was light on character details, but the concept was fleshed out as a Marvel comic book series by Bill Mantlo and artist Michael Golden in 1979. More recently, the Micronauts comic was relaunched at IDW as part its shared universe of Hasbro properties. It’s unclear if the new TV series will also be connected to Hasbro’s other properties, or if it will simply stand on its own to reintroduce the Micronauts to a new generation.
