Building on the success of their previous collaboration, ‘The Gimmicks’ with Mila Kunis’ Sixth Wall studio, Toonstar’s ‘Space Junk’ is set to revolutionize viewer engagement by incorporating NFTs. Through this innovative integration, audiences will have the opportunity to vote on narrative decisions, interact with creators and fellow fans, and even develop their own storylines for the show’s characters.
The series itself will be freely accessible to all viewers starting from May 19. Toonstar plans to release new episodes biweekly, with a total of eight episodes, each spanning approximately 10-14 minutes.
The highly anticipated minting of ‘Space Junk’ NFTs on the Theta Network is scheduled for May 15, with each NFT priced at $20. Specifics regarding the supply of NFTs have yet to be disclosed. Toonstar’s CEO and co-founder, John Attanasio, expects similar functionality for the ‘Space Junk’ NFTs on Theta, mirroring the success of ‘The Gimmicks.’ Initially launched on the Solana platform last year, ‘The Gimmicks’ transitioned to Avalanche for its second season.
Dominic Russo, alongside his involvement in ‘Space Junk,’ co-founded Verified Labs, a pioneering Web3 agency and studio. Heder, who has been actively engaged in various projects within the Web3 space, is also gearing up for the release of the NFT-driven animated series “Cyko KO” and his personal NFT art project, “Order of the Tigons,” which recently made its debut in the metaverse game, The Sandbox.
