It looks like it is really happening. A TV series. Many of us wanted it, and now we are getting it.
Sony Interactive Entertainment is teaming up with Technicolor Animation Productions. They certainly have a track record. How you feel about it is up to you. They worked on the Sonic Boom television series, as well as an Alvin & the Chipmunks television series. They also do games work. It looks like they have worked on the pre-rendered cinematics in games like the 2013 Tomb Raider and Hitman Absolution (if you remember the trailer with the nuns; Technicolor Animation Productions did that).
In charge of global distribution (including merchandising and licensing rights) is PGS Entertainment. They distributed Alvin & the Chipmunks, but also other shows like Miraculous and The Little Prince.
According to IGN, the plot of the series will focus on Sly and the gang saving their city. Carmelita will be in the show, as well as several series villains. No voices have been announced.
Anyway, there is some information; what are your thoughts?
Their animation standard is brilliant. Just hopefully get some good writers on board. This show doesn't need to be dummed down for kids, lets have the standards of old Hannah Barbarra cartoons; shows that entertain kids while being cleverly wrote for the adults.
Forgot to mention this: according to IGN, the plot of the series will focus on Sly and the gang saving their city. Carmelita will be in the show, as well as several series villains. No voices have been announced.
