Cartoon Network’s Level Up gets down to business
Cartoon Network’s new original movie, Level Up, is set to premiere on November 23 and will be followed next year by a half-hour series of the same name.
The gaming-themed property follows ordinary high school students Wyatt (Gaelan Connell), Lyle (Jessie T. Usher) and Dante (Connor del Rio), who battle together as avatars in a massively multi-player online video game, Conqueror of All Worlds.
Given the movie’s video gaming roots, www.CartoonNetwork.com will launch Maldark: Conqueror of Worlds on November 23. Similar to the game featured in the movie, players take on one of three classes and navigate a labyrinthine environment. The game features voice over from the cast and quests from the writers of Level Up the movie.
The upcoming series will be executive produced by Peter Murrieta (Wizards of Waverly Place, Hope and Faith).
