ROOSTER TEETH ANNOUNCES
ONLINE PREMIERE OF “RWBY”
New Anime Series from the Creators of “Red vs. Blue”
Premieres on RoosterTeeth.com July 18th
Austin, TX— Tuesday, July 9, 2013 — Rooster Teeth Productions is thrilled to announce the online premiere of their highly anticipated new anime series, RWBY. The first season will premiere exclusively on the Rooster Teeth website on Thursday, July 18th.
“We’re just ridiculously excited about how awesome this show is. The fan reaction at RTX was off the charts, and we can’t wait to reveal episode one to our fans online, and new audiences around the world,” says Rooster Teeth CEO and Co-Founder Matt Hullum.
Created and directed by Monty Oum, RWBY is the story of four very different girls brought together for one legendary purpose. Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang are new students at Beacon Academy, a school designed to train warriors and monster-hunters. Unfortunately, monsters aren’t the only threat to the citizens of Vale and before the year is over, the students of Beacon may find that homework is the least of their problems.
Rooster Teeth premiered the first episode of RWBY at RTX 2013 to a packed room of 2,400 excited fans. Following the premiere, cast and crew received a standing ovation.
“RWBY‘s episode one premiere at RTX was met with a standing ovation. The acceptance of this new project by our fans was overwhelming to the dedicated team members who all put their hearts into it,” says series creator and Rooster Teeth Director of Animation Monty Oum.
