It's Hero Time All Week Long As Cartoon Network Celebrates "Ben 10" Week March 19-24

Global Premiere of All-New CGI Movie, Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens

Sneak Peek of Brand-New Series Ben 10: Omniverse

CartoonNetwork.com Launches Next Ben 10 Game

Ben 10, the ultimate teen superhero and global superstar, takes over Cartoon Network with an entire week of on-air and online content beginning Monday, March 19. All week long, fans can start their day with special episodes from every Ben 10 series airing each morning at 6:30 a.m. (ET, PT) then catch their favorite episodes of Ben 10: Ultimate Alien at 4 p.m. (ET, PT). In addition, CartoonNetwork.com launches the next Ben 10 Game, The Mystery of the Mayan Sword. All this leads up to the U.S. television premiere of the all-new CGI movie, Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens on Friday, March 23 at 7 p.m. (ET, PT). Following the movie, which will also premiere on Cartoon Network around the world throughout the spring, Ben 10 fans will get their first-ever look at the much anticipated brand-new series, Ben 10: Omniverse, premiering later this year on Cartoon Network.

Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens turns the clock back to 10-year-old Ben Tennyson, fresh off his heroic summer vacation with the Omnitrix, as he struggles with detention, homework, and being grounded by his parents. Desperate times call for desperate measures as Ben jumps at the chance to escape from it all and into the Total Alien Immersion training program on the far side of the galaxy. But before he can even leave Earth's orbit, Ben's ship is attacked and he is sent crashing back to Earth stuck in his alien forms and battling a very hostile Mecamorph warrior.

Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens is a trans-Pacific collaboration between Cartoon Network Asia and Cartoon Network Studios U.S and is written by Marty Isenberg (Ben 10, Transformers Animated, G.I. Joe Renegades) directed by Victor Cook (The Spectacular Spider-Man, Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated) and executive produced by Silas Hickey, Regional Creative Director of Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific, Inc. The movie features the original voice actors from the Ben 10 animated series.

CartoonNetwork.com introduces a new Ben 10 Game, The Mystery of the Mayan Sword, on Monday, March 19. In this free-to-play online game, players strap on the Omnitrix to help Ben, Gwen and Grandpa Max retrieve the ultimate weapon. The Forever Knights are on a mission to uncover the planet's most dangerous weapon, the El Chuah Sword, and it is up to Ben, Gwen and Grandpa Max to stop them from reaching it. Players search for clues, solve puzzles, and explore four epic levels to prevent the Forever Knights from attaining this weapon of mass destruction. Along the way, they can also transform into favorite aliens like Grey Matter, Stinkfly, and Four Arms.

The first half of the two-part series finale of Ben 10: Ultimate Alien premiere Saturday, March 24 at 9 a.m. (ET, PT). In "The Ultimate Enemy, Pt. 1," the return of an old foe means Dagon is getting closer and closer to entering our dimension. Ben 10: Ultimate Alien reaches its dramatic conclusion on Saturday, March 31 at 9 a.m. (ET, PT) in "The Ultimate Enemy, Pt. 2," when Vilgax re-emerges in his most powerful form ever. Will Ben be able to stop him?


The Ben 10 saga follows the exciting adventures of boy-next-door turned global super-hero Ben Tennyson, after he discovers a strange watch-like alien device, the Omnitrix (later the Ultimatrix) giving him the power to turn him into 10 different aliens. Throughout his adventures Ben relies on the help of his Grandpa Max, his cousin Gwen and former enemy turned ally Kevin.
