Brothers Finn Wolfhard (“Stranger Things”) and Nick Wolfhard (“The InBetween”) will headline the voice cast of sci-fi animation series “New-Gen,” alongside Anya Chalotra (“The Witcher”).

Targeted at the 7-plus age group, the series is set in a futuristic utopia called New-Gen, which becomes threatened by a nanotech war. It follows twins who live as ordinary teenagers and nanotech-enhanced superheroes. The series is being designed as a multi-platform, multi-tech experience where viewers will be able to download an augmented reality app enabling players’ use of nanotech powers to battle various creatures from the show, and a web presence that weaves scientific fact and fiction to depict what nanotech is.

Independent global kids and family TV distributor Jetpack Distribution has acquired the global rights for the series, which is currently in pre-production and being shopped to buyers. Created by J.D. Matonti and produced by J.D. and Chris Matonti and Julia Coppola of APNG Enterprises, the show is based on the eponymous 2008 Marvel Comics series. “New-Gen” is being produced with animation partner Bardel Entertainment (“Rick & Morty,” “Angry Birds”). The showrunner is Brent Friedman (“Star Trek: Enterprise”) and the series is co-written by Eugene Son, whose superhero TV series credits include “Avengers Assemble” and “Ultimate Spider-Man.”

Jetpack CEO Dominic Gardiner said: “There’s so much going on in this show for kids. It’s a thrilling sci-fi adventure where everyday teenagers become superheroes on a mission to defeat a demonic overlord.”

“We intend to take you to a visual place never seen before in the futuristic utopia of ‘New-Gen,” said J.D. Matonti. “Nanotech governs this rich world and the superheroes who dwell in it. Finn Wolfhard, Nick Wolfhard and Anya Chalotra, young talent breathe life into the relatable lead characters as we move from comics distributed by Marvel to animated series and other multimedia platforms.”

Lena Headey and Luke Wilson have joined the voice cast of the sci-fi animation series New-Gen, based on the Marvel comic book series by J.D. Matonti, Chris Matonti and Julia Coppola of A.P.N.G. Enterprises. The series, co-created by J.D. Matonti and showrunner Brent Friedman, is now underway on production.

New-Gen follows twin brothers and nanotech-enhanced superheroes (Stranger Things‘ Finn Wolfhard and brother Nick Wolfhard are the voices) as they work to save the world of New-Gen from destructive war. The futuristic utopia of scientific and mechanical wonders seeks to balance nature and technology, weaving together an ecologically sustainable paradise.

Heady, who earned Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her linchpin role in HBO’s Game of Thrones, will voice the beautiful and prophetic Thea, the matriarch of the Association of the Protection of New-Gen. Wilson will play Roboduck, a comical and mischievous sidekick whose special ability is burping fire.

New-Gen is co-written by Eugene Son. Bardel Entertainment produces the series. Jetpack Distribution is repping global rights.

I don't understand the Marvel deal... this isn't Disney but it's Marvel, like the Netflix shows. But Disney has Marvel TV shows, too...

It's not like the Netflix shows. Those were produced by Disney/Marvel who sold them to Netflix. Marvel is not involved with this show at all. Even though Marvel published and distributed the comic book title, the creators retained the intellectual property rights. While usually Marvel retains IP rights to the comics they publish under work for hire, they sometimes cut deals with creators where they allow them to retain ownership of the material. Marvel even has an imprint, Icon Comics, dedicated to publishing creator-owned works.

I didn't know any of that, so thank you for explaining! There's very little about Marvel that I know about...
