ReBoot‘s revival is looking to be rolling along smoothly, and they’ve released the first image of the cast as well as an image of what to expect for the CG portion of the show.

ReBoot was originally aired between 1994 and 2001,  and it seems they’re taking a pretty different turn for the live action version of the show, as you will see in the synopsis below:

After playing the multiplayer Cyber Guardians video game together, four teenagers are recruited by V.E.R.A (Hannah Vandenbygaart, Bruno & Boots: Go Jump in the Pool!), the Virtual Evolutionary Recombinant Avatar, to fulfill their mandate to mend and defend cyberspace. Austin (Ty Wood, The Haunting in Connecticut), Tamra (Sydney Scotia, Some Assembly Required), Parker (Ajay Parikh-Friese, Mr. Young), and Trey (Gabriel Darku, Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments) now must protect cyberspace from threats that pose true consequences to both the virtual and real world. It’s more than these kids expected when they started at Alan Turing High. Way more.

That’s…not quite the ReBoot I remember watching as a kid. Either way, the show will be called ReBoot: The Guardian Code, and it will feature both live-action scenes and CG animation, which is produced using the Unreal game engine.

The original ReBoot was the first ever fully CG animated series, and the new show intends to take it all to new heights.
