Even though We Bare Bears finished off its story with the movie that was released earlier this year, the story of Grizz, Panda, and Ice Bear isn’t over. We’d heard about a We Bare Bears spin-off a year ago and now we’ve finally got our first word on the series.
The new series is titled We Baby Bears and will follow the Bears of the original series when they were younger. However, the bears will be going on different sorts of adventures then we saw in the flashback episodes of the original series. According to Animation Magazine,
We Baby Bears features the Baby Bears on their search for a place they can settle down and fit into. Each episode transports them into vibrant and colorful worlds, where they befriend legions of familiar fairytale faces. During their nonstop crusade, they are faced with the decision to stay or to continue on their journey for a permanent abode they can call home.
The Bears will use their cardboard box to travel to these imaginative new worlds as well. The style of this series can be seen in the first poster for it, with an extremely magical look to it.
We don’t want to read too much into it but… that star looks pretty similar to Steven’s star from Steven Universe. Just something to think about!
On the We Bare Bears side, this is a pretty radical departure for the franchise. While lots of fun wacky things happened in the original show we never got something quite this fantasy oriented. We’re fascinated to see how the Baby Bears we saw in the original show will react to these fantasy worlds. Will they stay act the same or be different? Only time well tell.
We Baby Bears is set to debut in Spring 2021!
The show is executive produced by Manny Hernandez who worked on the original We Bare Bears series as a director among other roles.
“Manny’s admiration for anime and music come to life in this fresh new expansion of a beloved franchise,” said Tom Ascheim, President, Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics (GKYAC). “The spectacular landscapes and musical inspirations transform this new series into an unforgettable journey for all We Bare Bears’ fans and beyond. And did I mention they are baby bears!”
An anime influence on We Bare Bears? We can dig that! Plus, they’re right, it’s baby bears. They’re adorable!
While this series may appear different from what We Bare Bears fans have gotten used to in the previous series we’re excited to check it out! Those characters of Grizz, Panda, and Ice Bear are a delight so seeing them react to magical worlds will be a delight to see.
