Zorro: Generation Z - The Animated Series - Zorro: Generation Z - Netflix

Zorro: Generation Z is an animated series that began in 2006. Former Marvel Studios development executive, Rick Ungar, developed the original series in association with BKN, G7 Animation and Pangea Corporation. The programming deal and concept for the new series was developed by Ungar, G7 and Pangea and underwritten partially by a master toy license with Brazilian toy company, Gulliver Toys. What made the show unique were the plethora of Pangea-designed high tech gadgets and the conceit of having the young Zorro ride his motorcycle named after his horse, Tornado. The show has been aired in the United Kingdom on Pop TV on 7 April 2008 and was shown on Kix! on 19 May 2008. This version of the Zorro story features a descendent of the original Zorro, named Diego de la Vega, as the original Zorro, fighting crime and the corrupt government of Pueblo Grande in a near-future setting. Zorro: Generation Z has yet to air in the United States. The series has already been shown in the Philippines via Hero TV. The second season of 26 episodes of the series was announced in 2009, entitled Zorro Generation Z: HD but were not fully completed or released for broadcast. Despite a press statement from Nicola Andrews, Managing Director of BKN New Media Ltd in London, who noted: 'We have already commissioned and produced Season II for 2009," BKN shortly thereafter filed for insolvency in the middle of 2009 and was acquired by Cookie Jar Entertainment in 2010. Some of the assets of BKN are under the control of Emba Media Management International.

Alejandro's grandmother is a Native American and, like Diego's grandfather, has died before the series begins but appears in dream sequences as a young girl who offers cryptic advice. She is probably based on the character White Owl from some recent re–telling of the Zorro story. She only appears in The Perfect Fox Hunt.
