Monsuno

Model.Brand.BrandTitle

Scientist Jeredy Suno’s discovery of Monsuno unleashes a potent crop of powerful creatures that have lain dormant for millennia. 

 But when Jeredy mysteriously disappears, it’s up to his son Chase and his Monsuno, called Lock, to defeat the dark forces trying to weaponise and control the Monsuno for their own villainous purposes.

 In Season 2, the action increases with all-new Monsunos, villains and planet destroying  threats that require Chase and his friends to step up the battle.

Brief Synopsis:
Gripping high-stake adventure, aspirational heroes and iconic monsters - Monsuno is the ultimate boys action animation following three kids as they battle forces of evil! When scientist Jeredy Suno discovers a potent energy source, he believes it could be the solution to the planet’s energy crisis. What he unearths are Monsuno – huge creatures with vast powers at their disposal, which lie secretively dormant until they are awakened to chaotic release. But when Jeredy mysteriously disappears, it’s up to his son Chase and his guardian Monsuno called Lock, to defeat the dark forces trying to weaponize the force of the Monsuno. Chase and his friends are in an all-out race for survival; against dangerous villains seeking power, a secret government agency seeking control and the potential demise of the planet. Despite the danger, being a teenager with access to controllable 15-foot tall hybrid monsters is everything you’d want it to be… and more.
