Don't miss the premiere of the new MECH-X4 family series in an expanded weekend premiere with four episodes on Disney Channel, Disney Channel App and Disney Channel VOD starting Friday, November 11 at 8:30 p.m. ET until Sunday, November 13.
Disney Channel is about to premiere the new family series Mech-X4, a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to meet and interview the main actors and producers of the series; after watching the first two chapters!
Mech-X4 is about a boy who discovers by surprise that he has a special power where he can control technology with his mind. Soon after you will realize that those powers together with your friends, will help you control a giant robot that will fight against other monsters to save your city and the world.
Details shared by meproducers STEVE MARMEL and ANUPAM NIGAM on MECH-X4:
- It has some influence from ET, from the Goonies" we were told that they love giant robots, Godzilla and Transformers; "We're both comic book guys," STEVE MARMEL said.
- It's a show about family, friendship and teamwork.
- Usually, children (actors) do what they want, in each chapter someone does something funny, weird or interesting, apart from what was written in the script, it's amazing.
- Everything on the show has a purpose and we try to make sure that if you see something on camera, later you'll see the reason for that.
- We're doing two half-hour chapters every night and there are four to five months of special effects to finish, like shots of drones and monster fights.
- Most of the show is taken in Vancouver and its metropolitan area.
- There is a method to choose how to make each montruo, usually have a mission to fulfill, we can not count much but they are fun combinations, we have excellent concept artists in vancouver because sometimes we can only say: what has to do together an anaconda and an octopus?
- This is one of Disney's first serial action shows, such as Game of Thrones.
- Mech-X4 is a 150-foot robot, there's a lot to explore, it has a job to do; it's like the boys' club is inside, everyone has a mission to save the city and the world.
Interview with MECH-X4 lead actors: Nathaniel Potvin, Kamran Lucas, Pearce Joza and Raymond Cham
How do they look like their characters?
Spyder is very crazy and likes to do a lot of daring things. I lived in Colorado for a long time, so I sguta go out, play in the pond and climb trees, I also like school, I'm taking college level classes and Sypder is not very good at school.
I like something my character, because Ryan is always up to the occasion. Every time you have to fight a monster or even face your brother, so I am somehow. Besides, I have two older brothers, so I know exactly what Ryan goes through every day. And Ryan loves skateboarding. I love skating. So there are some similarities between us.
Harris and I are very similar in terms of us being smart, more of how we dress really well and we're the heartbreakers.
I like my character because I'm also very protective of my family, and you'll see that later, I would do everything to protect them and make sure they're okay. I also did sports, when I was eight or nine playing basketball.
I liked the two chapters of Mech-X4 and I know that my two youngest children are going to like it, the series is familiar, the main actors are very nice teenage guys and a giant 150-foot robot, check out the trailer and let your kids know that this weekend it's the premiere!
