Rey Mysterio will soon be the hero in his own series on Cartoon Network.
The series, which will be named after Mysterio, is commissioned by Carton Network Latin America, so it will be interesting to see if it becomes available in other regions.
A report by Lucha Central explains that the series was announced at the 2020 Pixelatl Festival, and is being produced with the founders of Viva Calavera.
As well as telling Mysterio’s in-ring story, the series will also “delve into a great secret: unimaginable forces threaten our world” and his role in fighting them.
Mysterio commented that he is excited by the prospect of the animated series:
After 35 years of career and multiple achievements, I was still missing something. I always wanted an animated series with the character of Rey Mysterio and when the Hermanos Calavera presented their idea to me, I was immediately captivated. Working with Cartoon Network has been incredible, I can’t think of anyone better than this group to make this project a reality.
We will await further details on the launch dates and markets for this intriguing concept.
