PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) announced that it has reached an agreement in principle with Netflix to create play experiences for kids under its PLAYSKOOL brand, based on Netflix’s original preschool series, Super Monsters.

    Hasbro to Create PLAYSKOOL Play Experiences Based Upon Super Monsters Animated Series from Netflix

Super Monsters is an animated series about a group of preschool-aged kids who are descendants of the world’s most famous monsters, such as Count Dracula, Cleopatra and Frankenstein. The show follows the kids through their Pitchfork Pines Preschool adventures as they learn to master their own special powers while learning how to be the best they can be.

“We are thrilled to team up with Netflix to help bring the adorable Super Monster series to life through our upcoming preschool product line,” said Jonathan Berkowitz, senior vice president of marketing for Hasbro’s PLAYSKOOL brand. “We love how the series teaches kids valuable life lessons in self-control, kindness, respect and being a good friend, and can’t wait to add this exciting new property to our PLAYSKOOL portfolio.”

As the global master toy licensee, Hasbro will launch its line based on the Super Monsters series in fall 2018 under its PLAYSKOOL brand in the U.S., with additional markets to follow in 2019.

Hasbro and Netflix teamed up in 2017 to bring Stranger Things’ fans a collection of games, such as the MONOPOLY: Stranger Things Edition game, inspired by the hit Netflix show.

Season one of Super Monsters is available now on Netflix. Season two of the series will launch in October 2018.

VIZ Media Announces "RWBY" Manga Anthology Series for Summer 2018

VIZ MEDIA ANNOUNCES PUBLISHING RIGHTS FOR RWBY OFFICIAL MANGA ANTHOLOGY SERIES

RWBY Manga Anthologies Based On Rooster Teeth’s Popular Animated Series Begin Releasing This Summer with Ruby-focused RED LIKE ROSES

San Francisco, CA – VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), a premier company in the fields of publishing, animation distribution, and global entertainment licensing, expands its RWBY catalog with publishing plans for a line of RWBY OFFICIAL MANGA ANTHOLOGIES this summer.

The RWBY OFFICIAL MANGA ANTHOLOGIES will be published in English under the VIZ Signature imprint and will be rated ‘T’ for Teens. Each of the four character-focused anthologies contain more than 15 short stories by different Japanese manga creators. Bonus messages are also included from the voice actors who play the featured characters in the animated series, along with additional notes from RWBY character designer, Ein Lee, and various anthology illustrators.

Debuting Summer 2018, the first anthology features Team RWBY leader, Ruby Rose, while the second anthology, featuring Weiss Schnee, is set for publication later in 2018. More details on anthologies featuring Blake Belladonna and Yang Xiao Long is forthcoming.

In RWBY, the world of Remnant is filled with horrific monsters bent on the destruction of humanity. Fortunately, the kingdoms of the world have risen to combat these forces by training powerful Huntsmen and Huntresses at academies around the planet. Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long are four such Huntresses in training.

“This new anthology series of shorts allows manga creators to step deep into the world of Remnant and put their own spin on RWBY,” says Joel Enos, Senior Editor, VIZ Media. “Each volume showcases a different member of Team RWBY, and fans everywhere will enjoy delving into these stories that bring the powerful Huntresses to life!”

VIZ Media recently launched the single-volume RWBY manga by creator Shirow Miwa. The manga is inspired by the popular online anime-style series originally created by Monty Oum and produced by Austin, TX-based Rooster Teeth Productions. RWBY was the first western-produced anime series to be distributed in Japan.
