Cartoon Network has entered the world of webseries with a new digital title. The animation-based TV network, which is home to the linear version of the popular webseries Annoying Orange, has released its first original digital series Mighty Magiswords on its Cartoon Network Anything app.
Created by Kyle Carrozza (character artist for The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water), Mighty Magiswords introduces viewers to brother and sister Prohyas and Vambre, two warriors for hire ready to go on epic adventures with their trusty, magical swords at their sides. The digital series is currently available on the Cartoon Network Anything app, which delivers short-form content to users via a random stream.
Mighty Magiswords is just the first of more upcoming digital content from Cartoon Network based on the series. To supplement Mighty Magiswords, the animation network will add to the Anything app mini video games, activities, and interactive shorts, which allow Mighty Magiswords viewers to choose the endings of stories related to the series. All Mighty Magiswords content will be released across other Cartoon Network platforms in the future, including the network’s official site and its Watch Cartoon Network video app.
“As our first original digital series, Mighty Magiswords embodies everything kids love about a Cartoon Network series—but it has also been custom-developed to tell its story via interactive features where audiences can collect, contribute, share, and engage on digital platforms,” said Rob Sorcher, chief content officer for Cartoon Network, in a release.
You can catch all episodes of Mighty Magiswords by downloading the Cartoon Network Anything app from the Google Play store or iTunes app store.
