Babymetal is one of the hottest acts in the American metal scene right now, and Warner Brothers has announced that they are doing a shortform series which is based on the metal idol trio. Here’s how they described the new series:
The action-adventure will take viewers inside the magical world of heavy metal music as it comes under attack, and one lonely god, Kitsune, forms the warrior band BABYMETAL to save the day. In the series, SU-METAL, YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL join together to ultimately redefine the genre. The series will also feature new live-action performances from the group, who will enter the animated world through a secret portal.
Warner Bros.’ digital Studio Blue Ribbon Content, the Amuse USA subsidiary of Japan’s Amuse Inc., and Babymetal manager Key Kobayashi have all been credited as the producers of this hybrid live-action and animated show.
Thanks to their US tour, which has gotten much attention from legends of the heavy metal scene like Rob Zombuie, the trio have gotten a name for themselves in the U.S. More details on this new Babymetal shorts will be revealed soon.
