Warner Bros digital studio Blue Ribbon Content and Japan’s Amuse Inc. subsidiary Amuse USA are teaming up to develop a hybrid live-action and animated shortform series series based on kawaii-metal trio BABYMETAL. Creator and manager Key Kobayashi, aka Kobametal is producing.
The premise for the series is a magical world of heavy metal music as it comes under attack, which the fox god Kitsune responds to by forming the warrior band Babymetal to save the day.
SU-METAL, YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL appear in live-action segments before they enter the animated world through a secret portal.
Well, I’m a huge BABYMETAL fan, so this news is fantastic. On a side note it reminded me of ProStars from the early 90's, and that MC Hammer cartoon. This will obviously be a million times better!
