The classic animated television show Silverhawks, developed by Rankin/Bass Productions and released in 1986, is set for a revival thanks to The Nacelle Company.
Silverhawks, a team of 29th Century heroes with metal bodies and wings, took on organized crime rings and protected the citizens of the Galaxy of Limboran for 65 episodes. The team’s antagonist, Mon*Star, was a mob boss with some interesting characters, including a shapeshifter, a robotic card shark, and a man with blades for arms. The high-concept idea was a space-themed extension of their successful ThunderCats cartoon, but Silverhawks did not enjoy the success of the former.
Nacelle produces shows such as Disney+’s Behind The Attraction, Netflix’s The Movies That Made Us, The Toys That Made Us, and Down To Earth with Zac Efron, along with an array of partnerships with HBO, Discovery, BET+, A&E Networks, Hulu, Viacom, History, and many more.
The announcement of the partnership with Silverhawks LLC to resurrect the iconic animated television show follows pop-culture design house and toymaker, Super7, known for their ReAction figures, announced the release of their “SilverHawks Ultimates” line of action figures after the acquisition of the SilverHawks IP in January.
Brian Flynn, Founder, and Owner of Super7, said about the announcements:
“SilverHawks is a beloved franchise that has been overlooked for far too long. We are super excited to be working with Nacelle to bring SilverHawks back into the limelight for the die-hard fans as well as a new generation of fans to experience the magic of SilverHawks for the first time.”
Brian Volk-Weiss, Founder and CEO of The Nacelle Company, added:
“When I spoke with Brian Flynn the first time, I was like the character Yes-Man! “Yessss, just tell me where to sign!”
No release dates or casting has been announced.
