If you missed part 1 of our interview with Remi Aubuchon, check out part 1 here.
We had the opportunity to review some print ads for the new season and got our first look at Mega Mechs. What can you tell us about these new enemies and why we haven’t seen them before?
We pick up the story 7 months after the end of the second season and we quickly realize things have changed for the resistance movement. We have new allies in the form of the Rebel Skitters and an alien race known has the Volm who have been fighting the Espheni for hundreds of years. And we are winning, pushing back the enemy, slowing down their time table and putting a serious dent in their war machine. They have become more desperate and thus have unleashed their “Advanced Terrain Droids” or Mega Mechs as our group has christened them. We’ve never seen them before because the enemy saw no profit in using them against us since it appeared their sub-standard Mechs (yipes, really? sub-standard?) and Skitters were doing the job.
Ben is said to have another kid who has gone through a very similar situation as him (being harnessed and then saved). Will this new friend be a love interest or just a companion?
Well, I don’t want to give too much away, but Ben does have a new “friend” named Denny and she is also a deharnessed kid. We’ll just have to see what happens.
Will the new aliens introduced at the end of season 2 bring in a new language to the show or will the communication continue to be telepathic through Ben and other formerly harnessed kids?
The Volm (our new aliens) do not communicate telepathically, and we’re not sure how they do it, but we hear them in English.
Many have asked for access to more alien tech, especially after the 2nd mass abandoned the mech bullets project. What can we expect on the alien tech front with our new aliens?
As I said above, we are actually starting to have significant victories against the Overlords and this is primarily due to new technology provided by the Volm. There are also some other technological surprises that I don’t want to give away, but suffice to say that even the Rebel Skitters have some heretofore unknown technological tricks up their sleeves.
Yahoo also released this first peek at a battle and how the 2nd mass is using this new technology to their advantage but the skitters have something up their sleeves too.
