Today Rooster Teeth announced RTX at Home, a virtual RTX event taking place September 15-25. Earlier this year RTX Austin was delayed and then ultimately cancelled.
RTX at Home will invite the worldwide Rooster Teeth fandom to watch panels, catch exclusive reveals from their favorite series and join in on virtual events that will bring fans together from around the world to celebrate their love of all things Rooster Teeth. RTX at Home will stream live on RoosterTeeth.com and the Rooster Teeth apps, with all of the panel programming available at no charge for all FIRST members.
A number of showcase panels will be available for free for everyone, including the RWBY Volume 8 panel and the Red vs. Blue: Zero panel. In addition to fan favorite panels, RTX at Home will include virtual versions of the RTX Animation Festival and the RTX Podcast Festival.
Rooster Teeth’s epic anime-inspired series following the journeys of four unified huntresses-in-training arrives for its spectacular seventh season when Warner Bros. Home Entertainment presents RWBY Volume 7 on Digital ($14.99 SRP USA & Canada) and Blu-ray ($19.98 SRP USA, $24.98 SRP Canada) starting October 13, 2020.
Beloved by fans and acclaimed by critics, RWBY imagines a world filled with horrific monsters bent on death and destruction, and humanity’s only hope dependent upon powerful Huntsmen and Huntresses. Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long are four such Huntresses in training whose journeys will take them far past the grounds of their school, Beacon Academy. Though each may be powerful on their own, these four girls must overcome dark forces and work as a team if they truly hope to become the next generation of Remnant’s protectors.
In RWBY Volume 7, Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang have fought hard alongside their friends to bring the Relic of Knowledge to Atlas, the northernmost Kingdom in Remnant. However, the futuristic urban-sprawl may hide just as much danger as the Grimm-infested tundra that surrounds it. Enemies and allies will collide as our heroes fight to stop Salem’s forces, but banding together is dangerous when you don’t know who you can trust.
The cast is led by the key quartet of Lindsay Jones (X-Ray and Vav) as Ruby Rose, Kara Eberle (Rooster Teeth Shorts) as Weiss Schnee, Arryn Zech (Red vs. Blue) as Blake Belladonna and Barbara Dunkelman (Fairy Tail, Blood Fest) as Yang Xiao Long. Other key voice cast members include Miles Luna (Camp Camp) as Jaune Arc, Jen Brown (Red vs. Blue) as Pyrrha Nikos, Neath Oum (RWBY: Grimm Eclipse) as Lie Ren, Samantha Ireland (RWBY Chibi) as Nora Valkyrie and Shannon McCormick (Get Backers, Day 5) and Aaron Dismuke (Fullmetal Alchemist) as Ozma/Ozpin.
Created by the late Monty Oum (Red vs. Blue), RWBY is one of Rooster Teeth’s most beloved, viewed and shared series. As the first western-produced anime series to be distributed in Japan, RWBY episodes have averaged more than 7 million views, and the franchise has accumulated over 271 million views since its inception. To date, the series has sold nearly 670k units sold on DVD and Blu-ray, and registered consumer products sales in excess of $20 million. RWBY has a fervent fanbase in North America, the United Kingdom, Australia and Japan
Concurrent to the series now being distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, RWBY is receiving a new manga from Shonen Jump, as well as a new young adult novel from Scholastic releasing on July 21, 2020. RWBY DC Comics Volume 1 will arrive during the 2020 holiday season, and Rooster Teeth is producing three new RWBY-based series this year: a new short-form animated series, a live-action Dungeons & Dragons style show, and a live-action behind-the-scenes talk show.
