RTX2017 RWBY panel summary
I watched the stream on Twitch and will only post information that were meant to be on the stream. Spoilers for volume 4.
- Pumpkin Pete’s cereal is happening, along with a bunch of other merch
- Volume 5 premieres on October 14th
- We will get three character shorts before volume 5 airs. They showed the one for Weiss on the stream and it will be out in about a week for everyone to see. Also not all character shorts will be combat focussed.
- Monty’s brother showed up cosplaying Ironwood, he brought Haloid and Dead Fantasy posters he had found on an old harddrive from Monty and gifted them to the animation departmet.
- Someone was
asking about Tyrian calling Ruby a bitch or adding curse words in general because they
said they wouldn’t do that on a panel a couple of years ago. They said they wanted to be specific about who uses them and
why, also the show is growing up. In that scene it just fit the character and situation, so they decided
to do it there and then, but they don’t want to throw it in just to throw it in and some words will probably never be said on the show.
- There will be RWBY at NYCC.
- Someone asked how Jaune got Pyrrha’s weapons after the fall of Beacon. That probably won’t be covered on the show, but Kerry said he imagines Qrow picking it up when he got Ruby. Miles mentioned something about spare pieces of armour because Pyrrha probably owned more than one.
- Someone asked about whether or not Remnant has more than one language. Kerry said just the proper way to speak German (so I fully support people throwing German into fanfictions), but on a more serious note they said yes probably and it would be fun to explore that, but they probably won’t have the time to cover it.
- Vic records all his lines home alone in LA.
- Ruby’s dream in volume 4 was really just about Ruby trying to cope with what happend and also an effect of her overhearing Pyrrha’s voice every night while Jaune is training.
- There might be some exciting news leaking along EVO.
- Also they announced a new RT animated show coming up soon (but definitely not this year) named gen:lock, something SciFi with robots, I’m excited.
That’s not everything that has happened, but I tried to focus on the stuff that would be most interesting to me.
