It's been three months since Emily Osment's big reveal about the new Rainbow Brite cartoon, and we are finally getting some details!! Feeln, a streaming video-on-demand service, and subsidiary of Hallmark, is heading up the project. And they went public in a big way - by debuting a preview of the upcoming series!
Friday, October 17, 2014
So not only did we get a look at the new design, we got to hear it speak and see it move! The internet exploded with news stories regarding the reboot, and Feeln launched brand new social media pages for the new Rainbow on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. Through these sources, we have been able to glean a few details about the new show:
1) Three episodes are in the final stages of development, and they will be premiering via Feeln on November 6th, 13th, and 20th.
2) Apart from the characters shown in the preview, Twink, the Color Kids, Murky, Lurky and Stormy will be in the show. And Stormy was hanging out with the bad guys in the picture they uploaded. Just sayin!
3) Molly Ringwald (yes THAT Molly Ringwald!) will be voicing the Dark Princess.
And just this morning, another promo video was released:
Color me excited!! Renee and I recorded a "first reactions" squeeisode (haha) of BriteCast regarding the preview. And we'll be keeping you updated on the new show as things develop. So keep your eyes on the rainbow!
