The pinkest and most popular kitten unicorn character from The LEGO Movie, Unkitty, is getting her own TV series and it’s coming to Cartoon Network. The 2D animated show looks to be taking the character away from the world of The LEGO Movie and giving her a new bunch of supporting characters.

The teaser only says ‘coming soon’, but Deadline has a little more detail including this plot synopsis:
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. While she may be full of boundless energy and creativity, Unikitty is a force to be reckoned with if anyone gets in the way of spreading her positive vibes, especially if anyone makes her little brother and best friend, Puppycorn, sad. Also living in the castle are Dr. Fox, the resident scientist, and Unikitty’s trusty bodyguard, Hawkodile. Through it all, Unikitty and her friends make sure that every day is the happiest and most creative ever.
The talent behind the show is also revealed, with a fun fact being that Grey Griffin will be appearing in a second LEGO TV series after providing the voice of Naare in LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures.
The voice cast is led by Tara Strong (Teen Titans Go!) and Grey Griffin (Be Cool Scooby-Doo!) along with Kate Micucci (Be Cool Scooby-Doo!), Roger Craig Smith (Regular Show), Eric Bauza (The Adventures of Puss in Boots) and H. Michael Croner (Review).
The Lego Batman Movie and The Lego Movie producers Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, Roy Lee, Jill Wilfert executive produce with Sam Register (Teen Titans Go). Aaron Horvath (Teen Titans Go!) is supervising producer. Edward Skudder (Dick Figures) and Lynn Wang (Star vs. Forces of Evil) serve as producers.
This is clearly Cartoon Network’s replacement for Mixels, it remains to be seen whether any kind of supporting product line will coincide with the show airing.
