Press Release for Deal Between Hasbro and Cartoon Network + Deal News With Paramount and Netflix

Postby william-james88 » Tue Nov 20, 2018 12:18 pm

There are a lot of corporate deals happening and many involve our beloved Transformers. We were sent a press release from Hasbro regarding an international distribution deal with Cartoon Network for Transformers: Cyberverse. Transformers: Cyberverse will be coming to Europe, Middle East, Africa and Latin America in late 2018. You can read the press release below.

In other deal news we have a pretty big one with confirmation that Paramount has partnered with Netflix to for a multi picture film deal. There are not a lot of details, but the article from the Observer states the following:
While no specific properties were mentioned on the call, the deal would seem to provide Netflix with access to valuable IP such as Transformers, Star Trek, Cloverfield and more.

This is because Paramount does own the license for Transformers films and if anyone is curious about what that entails legally, we unearthed Viacom's legal agreement/ownerhip details. You can click here to see it.


Hasbro Studios Announces International Distribution Deal with Cartoon Network for Transformers: Cyberverse

Transformers: Cyberverse to Roll Out to Europe, Middle East, Africa and Latin America Late 2018

Burbank, CA, November 20, 2018 - Hasbro Studios, the Los Angeles-based entertainment distribution division of Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), announced today an international deal with Cartoon Network to distribute Season One of the hit animated series “Transformers: Cyberverse” to Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. The deal includes both linear and digital distribution to bring the show, which is already a hit on Cartoon Network in the U.S., to the rest of the world.

“We’re very excited to continue to grow our relationship with Cartoon Network,” said Finn Arnesen,

SVP Global Distribution & Development at Hasbro Studios. “They’re the perfect partner to bring ‘Transformers: Cyberverse’ to an international audience and allow fans around the world to enjoy a new Transformers saga that’s truly More Than Meets the Eye.”

In “Transformers: Cyberverse” Bumblebee is on a critical mission where lives are at stake. Only, he can’t remember what it is. It’s a good thing his best friend Windblade has found him to help repair his damaged memory chips. With each recovered memory, Bumblebee rediscovers his past adventures on Cybertron before coming to Earth. He relives fun moments when he played Cybertronian sports with his friends, and even tragic ones that would change his life. His past will shape him into becoming the hero we know today. As each memory is repaired, another clue comes to light that will lead them both to complete their shared mission to save their friends and Earth… however, the Decepticons are hot on their heels and time is running out.

But how will Cartoon Network fit anything new in between all those Teen Titans GO episodes they have to air 24/7?

They'll fit in new things. Like new episodes of Teen Titans GO. And more new episodes of Teen Titans GO. And even more new episodes of Teen Titans GO. There is nothing but Teen Titans GO.

In all seriousness, I think Cartoon Network should create a second channel for nothing but Teen Titans GO, and then go back to making stuff that actually has effort put into it.

We're just making fun of CN and their obsession/fetish for showing TTG as much as possible.

Which should be done whenever the opportunity presents itself.
