Like Rey Mysterio? Like cartoons? Then do we have some good news for you!
The project was announced during Cartoon Network Day at the 2020 Pixelatl Festival. Cartoon Network Latin America has signed the brothers behind ¡Viva Calavera! to produce the show, which is currently called... wait for it... Rey Mysterio.
Lucha Central’s article described the show:
Rey Mysterio will tell the story of one of the most iconic luchador, a figure admired by all and star of the ring, but he will also delve into a great secret: unimaginable forces threaten our world and he will be a fundamental part of that fight. When their number one fan discovers this secret, together they will immerse themselves in a world where the excitement and adrenaline of wrestling coexists with mystery, mythology, history, magic and supernatural beings.
Mysterio was a part of the panel, and was quoted as saying:
“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.”
No word on when the series will debut, but we’ll keep you posted.
