Of note from these reports is that the first season will include:
- A 2-part pilot with a total of 26 episodes.
- Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow focus in episodes 7-8.
- Animation in traditional 2D, hand-drawn style “with extensive focus on light and shadow [and the] backgrounds appear to have a watercolor look.”
It was also announced that the series is a relaunch with a “Year One” approach and “no continuity with prior classic series, Resolute or the film series.”
The voice director for Renegades is Ginny McSwain (Mass Effect video game series, The Batman, Darkwing Duck).
