It's yet hard to confirm if this is the "BABYMETAL animation" announced last year but it seems that BABYMETAL actually worked with Warner Bros. Animation to team with Cartoon Network to become the theme artist of "Unikitty". According to Collider and Unikitty developers BABYMETAL recorded a brand new song for the TV Show. A release date for the series has not yet been announced. In the meantime, please check a compilation of interesting information about this collaboration and Unikitty's plot. 


According to entertainment site Collider

"Cartoon Network’s new series Unikitty! pleased the crowd at San Diego Comic-Con yesterday with a screening of its pilot, but a surprising new fandom sprung up online when it was revealed that the Japanese metal idol band “Babymetal” would be performing the theme song. In an unexpected crossover of the two fandoms, metal aficionados and fans of “Babymetal” alike gravitated toward the new animated kids cartoon simply because of the theme song announcement. That’s very cool. And it’s likely just the start of a very interesting new fanbase, if brand-new fan art is any indication." 


To learn more about the show, here is an excerpt of the synopsis of Unikitty: 

"Your favorite character from The LEGO Movie now has her own show! Journey to a joyous kingdom full of sparkle matter, happy thoughts, and the occasional rage-out in Unikitty!, an all-new animated series. As ruler of the kingdom, Unikitty has busy days full of royal responsibilities. Unikitty is most interested in making sure everyone is happy and ridding the kingdom of negativity, but don't misunderstand her optimism—she is one kitty not to be crossed. Producers and members of the voice cast will give a sneak peek at this new series and explain how Unikitty and her friends will make sure that every day is the happiest and most creative ever!
