If you watched the season finale of Ben 10: Alien Force last week, youâ€™d know that after reprogramming the DNA of an entire alien race, Benâ€™s Omnitrix has been reset. This means heâ€™s got 10 new aliens that weâ€™ve never seen before. Also, with the alien threat resolved, the Alien Force title didnâ€™t make much sense anymore.
All of that leads to the recent announcement from Cartoon Network that 2009-2010 will see the launch of a new Ben 10 animated series, tentatively titled Ben 10: Evolutions.
Hereâ€™s the description:
An all-new animated series follows 16-year-old Ben Tennyson as his secret identity has been revealed to the world and he’s now an international mega-star super hero, loved by kids the world over but distrusted by many adults. Armed with a mysterious new Omnitrix, Ben will see action in places he’s never been. From Cartoon Network Studios, Glen Murakami (Teen Titans) serves as supervising producer and Dwayne McDuffie serves as story editor.
This places the series shortly after Alien Force (heâ€™s supposed to be 15 in that series). Cartoon Network has managed this show surprisingly well. Theyâ€™ve reinvented it twice, allowing for more aliens (which means more toys), and let Ben grow with his audience.
As soon as I find more info or images, Iâ€™ll post it.
