It looks like the classic animated video game character Pac-Man will be returning to the small screen!
Disney XD has picked up a new animated action comedy starring the iconic character, and has tentatively titled the show Pac-Man: The Adventure Begins. The series will be executive produced by Avi Arad and Rick Unger, and Arad says:
I am very excited about producing Pac-Man: The Adventure Begins, the 3D animated series with Rick Ungar. Pac-Man is one of the world’s greatest icons. He is funny and adventurous and will bring his tone and abilities to this beautifully executed animated series. For more than 30 years, Pac-Man has been a household name. Having this property on Disney XD is its rightful place to be.
Pac-Man first made his debut on the small screen in 1982-1983, when Pac-Man: The Animated Series aired. The new show is slated for a Fall 2013 premiere.
