Animated Legion news 14: It's Official!

It's official! At the "Upfront" meetings today (March 1st) where TV execs tell the media what new shows they've got coming up, Cartoon Network announced a bunch of new stuff, most importantly (to us) the Legion cartoon.

As reported by Ben on ToonZone:

At the first part of their upfront presentation in New York this morning, Cartoon Network announced their slate of new projects and acquisitions for the coming year.

[snip the first half of the article]

A new Legion of Superheroes series is in the works, and though they said the show was still unnamed, CN did say the new show would include Superboy.

Comics Continuum has a bit more (but not much):
The series featuring the Legion of Super-Heroes is headed for Kids' WB!, although it might eventually air on Cartoon Network, like The Batman.

Oddly, the Legion series was not mentioned in CN's official press release, though (or in articles posted to Variety,, Broadcasting & Cable, or MultiChannel News, all of which covered the story).

More as it develops...
