Disney XD Acquires new CG “Max Steel” Series for 2013

Disney XD has now acquired the new CG animated Max Steel series, according to TBI Vision.

The 26 episodes series is expected to launch in the spring of 2013. The show is being produced by FremantleMedia Enterprises, Mattel and NerdCorpsMax Steel was a science fiction–action, CGI, animated series which originally aired from February 25, 2000 to January 15, 2002, based on the Mattel action-figure of the same name. Max Steel ran for three seasons, totaling thirty-five episodes with a predicted audience of young males from the ages of eight to twelve. After the TV series ended, since 2004, direct-to-television movies have kept the presence of the main character since its initial creation.  The voice-acting cast for the series included such people as Chi McBride and Christian Campbell, the older brother of Neve Campbell, as well as well-known sports stars, such as Tony Hawk.  After the bankruptcy of Netter Digital and Foundation Imaging, Mainframe Entertainment took over the productions of the third season and the movies. The last episode, “Truth Be Told”, aired January 15, 2002.

The story of Max Steel follows Josh McGrath as a 19-year-old fictional extreme sports teen star, whose parents died some time ago. He was later adopted by his father’s best friend and partner, Jefferson Smith, who works in an extreme sports equipment manufacturing company which is in reality a facade for a secret counter-intelligence agency known as N-Tek.  Although, it is uncertain whether Disney XD will be following the same premise.  What do you think about this?

    You’re using a picture showing the 2008 series, the new one looks a lot different (Protagonist looks younger, he has a new sidekick, robot designs and the color scheme are different)
