NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2011 — As a follow-up to the hit entertainment property and cultural phenomenon Bakugan, Spin Master Ltd. will once again bring its all-new boys action property, Redakai: Conquer The Kairu to Cartoon Network. A co-production between Spin Master and global TV production giant Zodiak Kids/Marathon Media, the televised series will debut on the network in the U.S. in the second half of 2011.
A 52 x 26′ animated series, co-produced by Zodiak Kids/Marathon Media (Totally Spies, Rekkit Rabbit, Gormiti) and Spin Master (multi-award-winning boys’ action hit Bakugan Battle Brawlers), Redakai: Conquer the Kairu is an animated kids adventure series starring Ky, a 15-year-old student of ancient martial arts who embarks on an incredible quest to find the Kairu, a primordial alien energy force. Helped by his friends Maya and Boomer, Ky travels the globe looking for the Kairu to protect it from his extraterrestrial teenage opponents, with the hope that one day he will become the greatest Kairu warrior of them all — a Redakai.
With its unrivalled experience as a children’s entertainment company, Spin Master will roll out a highly original and innovative trading card game and line of toys soon after the series’ broadcast debut.
