Great news, everyone! Almost six years after the end of Xiaolin Showdown, I'm proud to report that Christy Hui (the creator) is hard at work on a successor series entitled Xiaolin Chronicles! Here's what been revealed so far:
- Tara Strong (voice of Omi) posted a piece of the script from an upcoming episode via twitter and also confirmed to a fan that the show "shall ride again."
- Unfortunately, Grey Delisle will not return as Kimiko; Jennifer Hale ("Katnappe") will take over. Jack Spicer and Chase Young also have different voice actors... Tara Strong as Jack Spicer? Hmm...
- The new series is being produced by a 2D/3D/Flash animation company in Los Angeles, CA called Actionfliks.
- Xiaolin Chronicles will make its debut in Spring 2013, but for now, a three minute(!) clip has surfaced here. Omi and Chase Young start a Xiaolin Showdown (which boasts some really cool CGI) while Jack Spicer attempts to steal a Shen-Gong-Wu.
It looks like the show's legacy will remain intact even though some of the great voice actors won't be back. I'll be sure to update with more when it becomes available.
In the meantime, rejoice XS fans!!!
