From beloved video game, to your favorite new cartoon series!
Costume Quest made waves and gained a beloved cult following when it first premiered as a video game in 2010. Now, the wildly popular video game is slated to be the next beloved animated hit when it debuts on Amazon Prime on March 8th! To make things even more exciting, the team behind this animated adaption is Frederator Studios, who’s also behind such iconic franchises as Castlevania, The Fairly Odd Parents, and Adventure Time.
Costume Quest the animated series is aimed at audiences ages 6-11, but of course in the vein of other animated hits like Steven Universe, Gravity Falls, and Star vs. The Forces of Evil, Costume Quest is sure to make a positive impression on older audiences as well (especially long time fans of the video game series)!
Based on the video game series by Double Fine Productions (Psychonauts, Broken Age) and the world originally created by Tasha Sounart, Costume Quest follows the adventures of four kids who, after unintentionally finding themselves in possession of costumes that grant them incredible superpowers, must learn to master their new abilities while facing off against dark forces and mysterious antagonists in their town of Auburn Pines.
The vision behind this animated adaptation is wildly imaginative; the manner in which these four heroes transform into their “supernormal” alter egos is both fun and magical. Each new costume they obtain unlocks a new set of transformations and powers–and those familiar with the mahou shoujo or sentai anime genre will no doubt catch the adorable homage this show plays to these tropes.
Will McRobb (The Adventures of Pete & Pete) serves as both the executive producer of the series, and the story editor, along with Frederator Studios’ Fred Seibert (The Fairly OddParents), Kevin Kolde (Adventure Time) and Eric Homan (Adventure Time). Costume Quest is produced at Frederator Studios, a WOW! Unlimited Media company.
