    Hey there! Any of you remember "Xiaolin Showdown" from...a long time ago? Given that it was one of my favorite childhood shows, this next bit of information has truly got me pumped...

    Xiaolin Showdown managed to get a sequel series, called Xiaolin Chronicles. If you have ever watched XS, how do you feel about this? Excited? Dissapointed? If you haven't seen XS, are you going to check it out? First impressions? Personally, I can't wait for XC.

    I loved Xioalin Showdown so this is exciting news. It was one of my favorite series on Kids WB. I just wonder if will it continue from where the original left off or is a completely new series. I hope it continues with Omi, Raimundo, Kimiko , Clay , etc, though I wouldn't mind a show new fresh series with new characters and Shen Gong Wu too find.

    Another idea I just thought of is if there was a whole new crew of Xioalin Warriors and the Shen Gong Woo from the original series got lost again, making the new crew find them again. Along with new Shen Gong Wu introduced. Anyway, just really excited to see XC and hope it's just as good as the original.

    I remember reading about this a couple of years ago, and being concerned because I couldn't tell if it was full 3D CGI or not. Finally saw a real clip just now, and I'm glad that it's confirmed that the 3D is for the showdowns only. Jack's new voice'll probably take some getting used to, though.

    Back in the day, though, this was one of my favorite Kids WB shows along with Pokemon, so I'm glad to see it returning. Whether or not I'll actually watch it, a lot lot Teen Titans Go*, is another thing. But it's somewhat comforting to know that both shows exist again in some format, if only for some kind of cozy feeling. All I need now is some early-mid Billy and Mandy reruns and a new version of HiHi Puffy AmiYumi and I'm in the mid-late 2000s again.

    *The difference being that I might actively try to watch Xiaolin Chronicles if I can. Not so sure about Teen Titans.

      Well, there is a new monk, but other than that the crew is the same. (But the new monk looks...um....uninspired.)

      @dbp the Jack voice from the clip was a placeholder done by Tara Strong. It's not his actual voice (thank goodness)

        I've got pretty high hopes for it since I really didn't like how XS ended. It was such a solid series, though. Some of the plots were really intense and so well-written that I still appreciate them, and I've always enjoyed the pacing at which they introduced new and stronger villains.

        I can finally look at Omi's bald single strand hair head again? Color me happy =D

        I still need to catch up with the first series, but I'm definitely excited for this.

        Idk. On one hand, it was very well written, but on the other hand…

        Idk it's kinda too … not racist, something's just not right with that show.

          I loved this show. I loved it so much that I thought that Avatar was going to be a bad copy of it. Which explains why I never fully liked or watched Avatar haha!

          Didn't like that Omi didn't win whatever the challenge was and I'm not fully excited for four new people. I liked the old crew. The girl, Kimi?, always changing her hairstyle <3

            I was excited until I actually read up on it. They are keeping the same characters which because of the end of the original show I'm not really happy about. I only liked Omi and Kimiko and despised Raimundo through out the whole show. Clay was just meh. They are apparently getting a new character who from his character/power descriptions seems to be, as said above, quite uninspired.

            The show is also owned by a different company so they are being forced to rename the Shen Gong Wu that existed in the original show which is going to bother me if I actually watch it.

            I'll give it a chance but I'm going to be wary about it because I've been burned by series continuations before *Cough*Korra*cough*.

            I actually really liked the show a long time ago. It'll be interesting to she what they do to it.

            This show was the highlight of Kids WB back in the day, with Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh, and Static Shock too (I mean, come on, it was awesome). I had no idea they'd ever come out with a sequel, and now that there is just ajsdoifjaodsijpfaosidjfoadsijf YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. Do we know anything else about it, such as release date, or is it just the one trailer right now?

              We know the voice actors and we know about two new characters. We also have the channels that it will be shown on and that they are in post-production. That's about it.
              The new characters look kind of....bad, but I'm going to watch a few episodes before I make any final judgements.

                I remember watching this show a long time ago, I enjoyed it. I just hope this reboot doesn't ruin it.

                  I loved the original series, particularly Season 1, but I think this will stray too far from the original and be boring

                    Sometimes sequel series can go...a bit off(TT Go!, Code Lyoko Evolution, Amazing Spiez!, etc.)

                    But I think that XC is going to stay right on track....a bit too on track. One of the biggest flaws of teh original show was that it never developed! I bet if the show dared to go a bit darker and deep as it went along, then it wouldn't have ended in the first place.

                    I saw the preview, and I'm pretty darn excited for it, y'know

                    The only downside that I saw was that Jack Spicer's voice actor changed, and the names of the Wu have changed

                      I just tried digging up some info. I've heard rumors that there's an apprentice named Shadow, and the new monk uses the element of Wood. I also heard that Chase Young's voice was going to be changed, but hopefully that isn't true (I am a Chase Young fan). There are also a lot of other girls out there who would petition for Shadow to be killed off if she becomes Chase's gf XD please confirm?

                        I'ma save this thread.
                        @Triplekitty YES! Shadow and Ping-Pong(the wood elemental) are indeed real!
                        Anyone else notice that Ping-Pong looks a lot like Omi(main hero) while Shadow looks a lot like Chase(main villain)
                        Connection?

                            @darkpokeball sry it's been a while hehe...but the new monk is named Ping-Pong? Seriously? As for Shadow, as long as she doesn't cut Chase's screen time, I could care less what she does. I mean, she couldn't be any worse than Wuya, right? This chick might actually be cool. I just hope there's a lot of Chase episodes. Shadow is so dang lucky!!! I wish I was her...maybe she's Chase's long lost daughter or something? That would be an interesting plot twist, and if Omi and Ping-Pong were brothers....Somebody write a fanfiction!!!!

                            Okay, my hopes for this show just got totally shattered. For the first time in my life, I might actually take notes on a tv show. I just found out for sure that Jason Marsden, the voice actor for Chase Young, would not be returning due to the development being in Canada. The only VAs who would be staying are Tara Strong, the voice of Omi, and the VA for Katnappe, though she will be taking over as Kimiko. As for the rest, they are going to be replaced. Chase also apparently looks older due to the new art, and with the new voice, it makes me hesitant to watch the show. If you need me, I'll be in the corner, crying while watching every episode of XS Chase was in while eating ice cream. :'(

                              Loved this cartoon when I was a kid, I'm looking forward to this sequel. Can't say that I expected it though, it's been almost seven years since that last ep aired. Time to re-watch

                              I remember Xiaolin Showdown as a child as well and watched quite a bit of the series since I watched every show on Kids WB up until their downfall in 2007 or so. However, I may not be as fond for the revival because it's one of those shows I haven't followed since I stopped watching it, but I'll have to see how it plays out.

                              But based on what I read, I'm at least happy that if I do follow the series that Tara Strong will stay as the voice of Omi. I really thought she did a good job with doing his voice.

                                I'm also glad that we would be at least getting one of the original voices, but it's still pretty heartbreaking that not all of them will return. GO TARA STRONG!!!!

                                  This is just what I needed uggh. Just like OP, I grew up with this show and now I've grown up and have so much stress in my life. To be able to watch a sequel of this show would make me feel so much at ease and give me that nostalgic feeling I long for
