It was announced at the 2020 Pixelatl Festival that a Rey Mysterio animated series will air on Cartoon Network Latin America. Viva Calavera studios, known for their striking visuals, is producing the cartoon.
The cartoon will combine wrestling with mystery, mythology, history, magic, and supernatural beings. Mexican themes will certainly be a focus. It sounds like Jackie Chan Adventures but with WWE’s Rey Mysterio as the protagonist. I also hope that we see some influences from the Tiger Mask cartoons and that there’s a good English dub.
After 35 years of career and multiple achievements, I was still missing something. I always wanted an animated series with the character of Rey Mysterio and the idea was presented to me, I was immediately captivated. “
“ Working with Cartoon Network has been incredible, I can’t think of anyone better than this group to make this project a reality,”
Mysterio recently suffered a torn triceps as a result of participating in Sunday’s WWE Payback pay-per-view. Therefore, he is out of action indefinitely. Which is a shame because teaming with his son Dominik was a fun story. So, hopefully this project can fill the void.
