“Ben 10 is a worldwide phenomenon for 10 years running, with more than 230 TV episodes produced. There hasn’t been an original production since 2012, but the overall popularity of the character has continued on,” said Rob Sorcher from Cartoon Network.
“This demand from audiences around the world for Ben 10 is the driving spark behind the re-launch. So we are creating this iteration for an entirely new generation of kids,” Rob added.
The new series of Ben 10 will be created keeping in mind the latest generation, who is fond of watching things through mobile.
Cartoon Network vowed the new Ben 10 series would feature “many new and fan-favourite alien,” and would depict Ben travelling the country with his cousin Gwen and Grandpa Max during summer vacation.
