Babymetal to star in animated series

Babymetal are to star in their own animated series, further adding to their continued awesomeness.

According to Deadline, the show will tell the story of a band (the band is Babymetal) fighting to save heavy metal from opposing forces. The show will also feature live-action performances from the band (still Babymetal), who enter the animated heavy metal world through a secret portal.

The show will be a co-production between Warner Bros Animation, and its Blue Ribbon Content studio, and Babymetal’s management company Amuse Inc.

“Babymetal have to be seen to believed”, says Sam Register at Warner Bros. “A mind-blowing, fun combination of pop vocals, heavy metal music and dance choreography brought to life by three incredibly talented teenage stars. We are huge fans here at Blue Ribbon Content and are extremely excited to help bring the Babymetal phenomenon to US audiences through this upcoming digital series”.

I’m pretty sure Babymetal have already brought themselves to US audiences, but I guess there’s always room for more. As previously reported, they’ll be bringing themselves back to UK audiences by upstaging the Red Hot Chili Peppers repeatedly in venues across the British Isles in December.
