While looking up something completely differently, I stumbled onto this site
, which mentioned that American Greetings announced a new Care Bear at the licensing show last month: Wonder Heart Bear. However, the only other information I could find was a youtube video
of a girl auditioning for the part. If this audition is to be believed, then we know a little bit about the upcoming series:
- Tenderheart is Wonder Heart's uncle. (So who's his sister?)
- Tenderheart can change color. For some reason.
- Grumpy travels in a caravan.
- The Care Bears meet real kids again.
This is supported by another video audition
by the same girl, this time for a little girl named Olivia. The audition dialogue mentions a "Troublemaker" (please be Grizzle, please be Grizzle) and that perhaps, like Makena, she can use Care Bear powers (but then again, maybe not). With any luck, AGP will put out some actual information about the upcoming series sooner than later.
The audition videos include concept art of the characters:
