Transformers Prime Animators Silver Ant PPI To Produce Beast Hunters in Malaysia

By Jack on Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Polygon Pictures Inc., Japan's leading CG production house, said it plans to establish a joint company with a Malaysian digital animation studio to produce the third season of the animated TV series "Transformers Prime."

Polygon Pictures and Silver Ant Sdn. Bhd. plan to form Silver Ant PPI Sdn. Bhd. in January.

"Transformers Prime" is a full-CG animated TV series adaptation of the entertainment franchise revolving around toys, comics and live-action feature film adaptations. The latest series has been airing in the United States since 2010 on The Hub and elsewhere across the world. It premiered in April 2012 in Japan.

The TV series has gained critical acclaim for its high-quality imagery created by Polygon Pictures. It won multiple Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards recognizing excellence in U.S. daytime TV programs.

Polygon Pictures has provided computer-generated graphics for feature films and videogames, with the "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" animated series being one of its representative works. It also operates a licensing business for its original works.

Silver Ant is one of leading animation studios in Malaysia. Its original 3-D animated feature "SeeFooD" was theatrically released in more than 90 countries and regions.

The joint company, Silver Ant PPI, will work with local universities, develop creative capabilities through staff members from Polygon Pictures and establish a coordinated production management system to serve as a speedy, high-quality content production base in the country, the Japanese company said.

Polygon Pictures also intends to expand its licensing business in Asia through a tie-up with Silver Ant.

In what appears to be last minute deal, Tranformers and other Hasbro shows will be staying on with Netfilx. As we reported previously, Hasbro and Netflix were to go their own way last month when a new deal fell through. However, without disclosing the terms of the detail. USA Today reports Netflix let be known that Hasbro Studios shows aren't going anywhere. Good news for Netflix customers who need their Transformers fix.
Adweek has posted an article about Hasbro's TV strategies that goes into of detail about The Hub - and what went wrong. The short version is that Discovery was admirably hands-off with the network, leaving Hasbro almost solely in charge of programming... and a combination of slow profits, the proliferation of on-demand viewing, and the departure of President & CEO Margaret Loesch led Hasbro get out of the network-running business. Keep reading for more details on all that and a link to the full article where you can see My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic described as "creepily beloved"!
While we'd previously heard a cutoff date of January 1st for G1 and other Hasbro shows, The Wrap reports that Hasbro and Netflix have been unable to come to terms - a situation more or less confirmed by a Tweet from @HasbroNews. So if you really want to catch up on Transformers Prime, Pound Puppies, or My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, you'd best get to watching now. Keep reading for more details!
Variety reports that the Hub will, as previously rumored, become the Discovery Family Channel on October 13th. Discovery will be taking a majority share in the network, but Hasbro will retain a daytime block of programming for its shows such as Transformers Rescue Bots, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and presumably the upcoming Transformers Robots In Disguise. Keep reading for more details!
Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun reports that Polygon Pictures has walked away from the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards with four awards, two for Transformers Prime Beast Hunters. The other two were for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and between the two series Polygon has taken the Outstanding Special Class Animated Program award for the past three years running. We'll see if Robots In Disguise 2015 will help them maintain their lock on the category, but for now keep reading for an excerpt from the article and a link to full details!
