‘Wulin’ a force on toon net

'ThunderForce' gets a new name

Broadway Video Enterprises and GoodTimes Entertainment have jointly acquired domestic and international television, merchandising and licensing rights to “ThunderForce,” a popular Taiwanese martial arts cartoon. Toon will be renamed “Wulin Warriors: Legend of the Seven Stars” and premiere on the Cartoon Network in the fall.

Deal, negotiated with Distant Horizon, is for a franchise that already includes 900 hours of television programming, a feature film and 60 licensed products retailed in Asia.

Thirteen 30-minute episodes combining anime, kung fu and puppetry will debut on Cartoon Net’s toonami programming block. “Wulin” will be produced by Larry Schwarz’s Animation Collective.
