Art Asylum to Make New "Speed Racer" Cartoons
Art Asylum has announced a major initiative revolving around Speed Racer, one of the earliest Japanese anime shows imported to America. The centerpiece will be a new set of Speed Racer toys, each of which will contain a DVD of Speed’s new animated adventures. Art Asylum promises “a new take on Speed Racer – he has grown up and has 2 kids of his own,” and has become a trainer for a new team of racers. A multi-player on-line video game is also scheduled for release in July.
More information about the toys, the video game, and the animation can be found at Art Asylum’s www.speedracerlives.com website.
