Summer 2012: Animorphs #7 and #8 Relaunch CONFIRMED!


Michael Grant (co-author/co-creator of Animorphs) informed me today that Animorphs #7 and #8 have now been confirmed for a Summer 2012 relaunch release! Like the first six books, they are going to be re-released with lenticular covers and updated references as well. This is hopefully a good sign that the sales from the May relaunch of Animorphs #1 & #2 went well (although we currently do not have the exact figures to know for sure).

Animorphs #5 (Lenticular Edition).In other news: A larger cover for Animorphs #5 is now released via Amazon. Please remember, however, that this is still for the first Marco. Although Scholastic has confirmed that this Marco will be recast from the whitewashing controversy, they have still not yet updated the new model through the official site. Rest assured that we will definitely keep you updated once that happens.

There are now also official online advertisements for Animorphs too! These are flash banners that show off Jake’s morphing animation from the first book, and I have converted them to GIFs for us (See: Ad #1 & Ad #2). These are apparently being shown on various sites, however I have only seen them on Scholastic’s official site myself. Please do let me know if you see them anywhere else.

Lastly, I have also gone ahead and updated the Missions section to add #7 and #8 to the relaunch list, and I have updated the FAQ to reflect this change as well. That’s everything for now. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as we hear more! (Can’t wait to see the new Ax!)

  3. @TimmyTuan: Good question! Chronologically, it occurs between #7 and #8, and was originally released as a side summer adventure with them as well. Maybe Scholastic will make plans to hype it up for summer reading too? No official news on it yet though. If I hear anything, I’ll be sure to update about it!

  4. [...] crossed that they sell well! They must be doing okay, since a relaunch for #7 & #8 has been confirmed, but I don’t know… in its heyday, the books have already sold a combined 20+ million [...]

  8. im confused in an interview scholastic said they fixed the plot holes and updated the references with the re launch of the series. what do they mean by this i read the series twice and i couldnt see pot holes maybe im just a bit dim but can someone lat them out for me? and about the references how on earth would they update pop culture references?

    It would be nice if someone outlined the plot holes and references for me because i am really lost

  9. @Allison: Have a look at our relaunch pages to get a better idea of the new changes (Missions > Relaunch Editions). Here is the first book: hiracdelest.com/missions/books/relaunch/01.htm
