Hasbro Studios to Attend NATPE Miami 2017

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We have news regarding the upcoming National Association of Television Program Executives (NATPE) event in Miami (Jan 17-19), which showcases the entertainment industry and provides a platform for upcoming and established franchises and companies to share their content and tips. Hasbro Studios, the media side of the toy company, will be attending with three of its current media franchises: two My Little Pony series and Transformers: Robots in Disguise! You can find out more information below.

MIAMI: Two My Little Pony titles lead the slate that Hasbro Studios brings to the market: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and My Little Pony: Equestria Girls.

The company is also promoting Transformers: Robots in Disguise. “All three series continue to achieve high ratings throughout the [LatAm] region and will premiere new content in 2017,” says Gustavo Gomez, Hasbro Studios’ sales director for Latin America and Iberia. “The My Little Pony and Transformers franchises continue to appeal to audiences thanks to their multi-generational fan bases, compelling stories and rich characters.”

“[This] will be a banner year for both brands thanks to major motion pictures that we feel will broaden their audiences even further,” he continues. The upcoming films are My Little Pony: The Movie and Transformers: The Last Knight.

Gomez adds: “Hasbro Studios’ mission is to use immersive, cross-platform storytelling to bring Hasbro’s most iconic brands to kids and families.”

Hasbro Studios to Attend Kidscreen Summit 2017, Miami

Postby Va'al » Sat Feb 11, 2017 10:52 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Kidscreen Summit (February 13-16, Miami) is an event - by its own definition - "renowned as the kids entertainment industry’s most important annual event. In 2016, the conference welcomed nearly 1,800 attendees from more than 50 countries. Top executives attend Kidscreen Summit to take advantage of the year’s best business networking, and to engage in critical dialogue on issues that affect the industry." With that in mind, we can report that Hasbro Studios will be attending in full force - after NATPE last January - showcasing their current projects, with a focus on Transformers: Robots In Disguise, Transformers: The Last Knight, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and My Little Pony: The Movie - but also upcoming projects in those areas, and any further development.

Hasbro delegates attending:

Sue McPoland (Director, Global Consumer Insights – Hasbro Global Brand Licensing & Publishing)
Jackie Fradin (Sr. Director Global Consumer Insights – Hasbro Inc)
Gustavo Gomez (Sales Director LatAm & Iberia – Hasbro Latin America)
Nuno I( Director of Sales, Asia Pacific – Hasbro Studios)

Hasbro Studios to Attend CTN Animation eXpo November 17-19, 2017, in Burbank, CA

Postby william-james88 » Tue Nov 14, 2017 10:51 pm

Are there any aspiring animators out there? Because if so, we just got word of Hasbro appearing at the CTN (The Creative Talent Network) Animation eXpo, an event held for aspiring animators and skilled professionals to meet and talk about their craft.

Hasbro will have their own booth there (booth B83) along with three panels. Judging from the talented creators attending, like Walter Gatus, the lead character designer for Transformers at Hasbro Studios, there will surely be a Transformers presence. This could be the place where fans get an early look at Transformers: Cyberverse or Rescue Bots Academy (or any other animation they may have, check the roadmap below), though no specifics aside from the panels mentioned below are confirmed.

The show takes place November 17-19, 2017, in Burbank, CA and you can get all the details on acquiring tickets and participating, along with a complete schedule, here.

Below is a list of all Hasbro staff attending the event followed by details for the three panels Hasbro will have. Keep an eye out for the Hamilton joke Hasbro slipped in.
