New G.I. Joe and Transformers Cartoons Coming Possibly Maybe
?Voice actor Michael Bell was recently interviewed by some podcast called Moon Base 2, where he revealed that:
? He had just interviewed for the role of General Hawk in a new, 26-episode G.I. Joe cartoon
? He had just interviewed for the role of Ratchet in a new Transformers cartoon
Everybody freak out. Now settle down, because I don’t think anyone knows what’s going on for either of them. I’m assuming if Bell specifically mentioned a 26-episode Joe cartoon, he knows what he’s talking about. But whether that cartoon is more Resolute (ohpleaseohpleaseohplease) or some kind of afternoon-friendly Rise of Cobra tie-in remains to be seen.
As for Transformers, I can’t help but wonder if Bell was actually trying out for the War for Cybertron game mentioned earlier and just got mixed-up. Obviously, that’s by no means a given, especially since Hasbro trots out a new TF cartoon every 2-3 years, and now that Animated is seemingly over, we’re due. It’s just a thought.
I guess we’ll see. And I’ll obviously report anything else I hear about these shows ASAP — you hardcore TF and Joe fans feel free to drop me a line with anything else you know. (Via The Terror Drome and Comic Book Movie)
