A mythic quest to save the world unfolds in Nickelodeon’s newest animated series, Mysticons, premiering Monday, August 28th, at 4 p.m. (ET/PT). Produced by Corus Entertainment’s animation studio Nelvana, the half-hour action series follows four girls who transform into legendary warriors, Mysticons, who band together to save their realm from evil.

Created and executive produced by Sean Jara (Johnny Test), Mysticons is a contemporary urban fantasy series about four girls from different walks of life who are transformed into the legendary Mysticons. Arkayna, Zarya, Emerald, and Piper are drawn together by a prophecy to battle evil and protect the realm as unexpected heroes who work together to become epic warriors and ultimately, the closest of friends. The heroes team up as the stakes are raised when the evil Queen Necrafa is released from her prison and embarks on a mission to destroy them and their home, Drake City.

In the series premiere, “Sisters in Arms,” the legendary Dragon Disk brings together the four girls and bestows upon them magical powers.

The Mysticons voice cast includes: Alyson Court (The Big Comfy Couch) as “Arkayna Goodfey,” Drake City’s princess who is desperate to be a regular teen, while balancing being Mysticon Dragon Mage; Nicki Burke (Barbie: The Pearl Princess) as “Zarya Moonwolf,” a tough and fiercely protective street kid with roguish charm, known as Mysticon Ranger; Evany Rosen (Hotel Transylvania: The Series) as “Emerald Goldenbraid,” an innovative engineer and Arkayna’s best friend, known as Mysticon Knight; and Ana Sani (Mia and Me) as “Piper Willowbrook,” an optimistic and fun-loving street kid who doubles as Mysticon Striker.
