Corus Entertainment‘s Nelvana has partnered with The Topps Company, Playmates Toys, and Nickelodeon for Mysticons, which will make its global debut in 2017. Playmates Toys will act as the global master toy partner for Mysticons, and Nelvana is developing the franchise into a half-hour animated TV series, which will enter production later this year.
The series tells the epic tale of four girls who transform into legendary warriors and undertake a mythic quest to find a magic tome known as the Codex. They must reach the Codex before Necrafa, the Queen of the Undead, gets to it first and uses it to spread darkness and destruction. The Mysticons come from different walks of life, from princess to street kid, but are brought together by fate to save the world.
The series is executive produced by Michael Eisner and Noel Bright for The Topps Company and Corus Entertainment’s Doug Murphy, Colin Bohm, and Irene Weibel.
