On Friday, Nov. 25 at 7 p.m. (ET/PT), Cartoon Network presented an hour-long special event of out-of-this-world proportions! In Ben 10 / Generator Rex: Heroes United, two heroic teenagers – Ben Tennyson and Rex – team up to save both their worlds from an all-new evil menace.
In the midst of battle, Ben 10 is dragged into a dimensional rift and sent spiraling to a strange alternate world where microscopic nanites infect every living creature on the planet: the world of Generator Rex! Are Ben’s alien transformations any match for Rex’s power builds? Who is the mysterious villain threatening to take them down? And can they unite in time to keep both of their worlds from being destroyed? Tune in to find out!
I was lucky enough to be sent a screener copy prior to Ben 10 premiering on the Cartoon Network, so Thanksgiving evening, friends and family piled around the television to watch this amazing 1-hr. special event. What an amazing special. I was surprised at how the adults enjoyed Ben 10/Generator Rex special. We had the children shushing us during the viewing, as we were all raving about the show.
Did you watch it with your family on the 25th? If so, what did you think of it. Having never seen Ben 10 or Generator Rex on the Cartoon Network, I didn’t know what to expect prior to watching this. But, I have to say, these are great shows for the entire family to enjoy together. And, coming in Dec., make sure you pick up Ben 10 on DVD. I will definitely be watching Ben 10 on the CN from now on with my daughter. I wonder if this special is hinting at a crossover or a longer feature film. If so, we would watch it for sure!
