Cartoon Network has secured the broadcast rights of “Power Players” in the EMEA, APAC, and USA regions. Utilizing groundbreaking CGI-hybrid animation, the action-comedy animation series follows the adventures of Axel, an adventurous boy who transforms into a living action figure, and his unlikely team of toy heroes as they embark on the biggest “small” adventures a kid could ever imagine. “Power Players” is visually stunning animation that truly brings the characters and story to life, as this is the first time this rendering technique has been used in a series format. Tackling BIG challenges and high stakes from a toy’s eye view, the show embraces the pure fun of play while promoting camaraderie and teamwork.
