Cartoon Network Screening At SXSW 2017

Cartoon Network USA will be hosting a special screening during the SXSW 2017 (South by Southwest) media event in Austin, Texas on Monday 13th March at 8pm at the Long Center for Performing Arts. The screening will feature never before seen episodes of The Amazing World of Gumball, We Bare Bears, Ben 10 and Teen Titans Go! and apparently there’s a big surprise too. A SXSW badge will be required for access to the screening.

SXSW is a major annual media event and is an amalgamation of film, interactive media and music festivals. At last year’s SXSW event, Cartoon Network USA hosted the world premiere of The Powerpuff Girls 2016 reboot as well as a pre-premiere party. Last year, Cartoon Network also hosted a creativity panel with Ian Jones-Quartey (creator of OK K.O.!: Let’s Be Heroes and former supervising director for Steven Universe), Julia Pott (Creator of Summer Camp Island), Kyle Carrozza (Creator of Mighty Magiswords), Pete Browngardt (Creator of Uncle Grandpa and Secret Mountain Fort Awesome) and Rob Sorcher (Chief Content Officer at Cartoon Network). Cartoon Network also hosted a joint panel with Lego about their on-going content collaboration with shows such as Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu and Nexo Knights.

Cartoon Network has bid farewell to Regular Show by hosting a special screening of the show’s big finale on Thursday night (12/01/2017) at the AMC Burbank 16 movie theater. The show’s creator and voice of Mordecai, JG Quintel attended the screening with a large group of his production crew. After the screening, JG Quintel, William Salyers (voice of Rigby), Minty Lewis (storyboard artist and voice of Eileen) and Curtis Lelash, SVP of original series at Cartoon Network came to the front of the screen for a special final Q&A session.

Many fans were laughing and crying throughout the epic finale, the show’s production staff found it difficult to let go after eight seasons and over 250 episodes. Minty Lewis commented “This feels like a funeral right now.”. JG Quintel also commented “It was neat to get to hear people react to the show one last time, because that’s not gonna happen anymore”. William Salyers also said “It was six amazing years of my life, it was never not fun to go to work, and you can’t say that about a lot of jobs”.

Regular Show – “A Regular Show Epic Final Battle” will air Monday 16th January at 6pm (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network USA. Robert Englund (known for his role as Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare On Elm Street) will guest star as Anti-Pops.

San Diego Comic Con Ben 10 Mighty Magiswords Sneak Peeks

As promised by Cartoon Network USA, they’ve showcased two sneak peeks at San Diego Comic-Con International 2016 convention for two upcoming shows, both the Ben 10 reboot and for Mighty Magiswords. Both clips were previewed at a special screening and cartoon character costume competition evening event at the convention on Thursday 21st July. Ben 10 will make its international debut in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) and APAC (Asia-Pacific) this year and the Americas (USA, Latin America, Canada) next year. Mighty Magiswords will debut on Cartoon Network USA later this year, making a successful conversion from a micro-formatted show on the Cartoon Network Anything app to a full-length animated show on television.

Sneak Peek of the Ben 10 reboot, in this clip Ben uses his Omnitrix to transform into Diamondhead and uses his crystalisation powers to save people from falling off dangerous rides at the amusement park.

In the Mighty Magiswords sneak peek clip, protagonists Vambre and Prohyas are on a quest to find the Masked Magisword. The Keeper of the Mask sets them a challenge before they can claim their prize: a mask with the facial expression of “mindless bliss” must be produced or the sword stays in the temple.

Costume Ball Competition

As mentioned alongside the exclusive screenings on Thursday evening at San Diego Comic-Con, there was a competition for the best Cartoon Network cartoon character costume, some of entrants were amazing especially on how much effort they’ve put into their costumes. The costume contest was judged by a panel of Cartoon Network’s top animation talents including Kyle A. Carozza (Mighty Magiswords), Spencer Rothbell (Head of Story for Clarence and voice of Clarence) and Rebecca Sugar (Creator of Steven Universe). The winners were given Cartoon Network goodie bags.
