Norimage (the live action company co-producing) has also uploaded some photos of the cast, crew and set on their Facebook. Great quality pictures, worth a look.
Code Lyoko Evolution: Episode 1Airdate: 19th of December (online), 5th of January (TV)
Raw | English subs
Months have passed since our heroes have destroyed XANA, the AI who menaced the world. Daily routine has resumed at Kadic. The heroes have gone up a year in school. Odd, Ulrich, Jeremie and Aelita are now in year 10…and still under the tyranny of Jim. The latter is in a computer room for a class of “cybersport.” While the teacher fights with the computer, trying to find the CD drive, he receives a violent electric discharge which propels far from the computer as the class laughs on…except for Aelita who is staring with true concern at the computer screens displaying lines of familiar code…
Yumi has moved into year 11…and William along with her. Things haven’t changed; the hand
The Actors Want to Pass a Message to YouThese have been the banner images on CL.fr for a while now but I decided not to post them until they were almost finished. Just a word of thanks from each actor, recorded duinr the advance screening by CL.fr staff. They did up the banners in French, I just translated and rewrote the text (with a slightly more legible font too).
Léonie wasn't at the advance screening and I'm not sure if Bastien (Jim) left a message. If they update with their banners then I'll post them here later, but for now I'm not sure if they exist.
In other news the Yumi stick has been confirmed to be in the season:
Otherwise nothing much new. Quentin had his Twitcam

The heroes wait patiently at the factory. To be more exact, they’re waiting impatiently! Odd is late with no explanation. Fortunately he arrives with a concrete excuse; one of his classmates had managed to crack the newest game release, not even commercially available. Jeremie scoffs the announcement and announces good news to the group: he and Aelita have reprogrammed the Skidbladnir. In a short while, the heroes will be able to return to the network and go to the supposed Replika housing XANA.
Leaving via the tunnel in the park, the heroes come across William. He is indignant. He had completely understood that his “friends” were returning to the factory and he suspects something was wrong with XANA.
Then came their disappointing announcement, while he thought he had proven himself, Ulrich and O

Code Lyoko Evolution: Character Sneak PeeksEDIT: Finally we have Odd's and Yumi's in a simultaneous update by the new official YouTube channel CLEMoonscoop (there are new CGI poses on their background too, but low quality).
Seems as though they're doing individual character videos now, of their evolution throughout the series (including Evolution this time). I'll update them here as they're released.
Code Lyoko Evolution: Episode 4French title: Madame Einstein
Airdate: 19th of January
Raw | English subs
Kadic welcomes a new student to its ranks; Laura Gauthier. Blonde and charming, she proves to be a bright student in front of her teacher during first period. While Jeremie’s fatigue stops him from completing the equation on the board, Laura takes his place and finishes the difficult equation with vigour.
The new student is noticed by the group of heroes. Grumpy about his failure, Jeremie sulks while Odd and Ulrich rub it in. It is however Aelita who frowns while Laura reappears and seems to take an interest in Jeremie.
While the heroes talk about the Cortex and a new vehicle which Jeremie had programmed to allow them to not be devirtualised by the multiple topological movements that characterise the Cortex, L
Code Lyoko Evolution: News Recap 26/10/2012I've been getting a few questions and such recently about things already in here, so I've decided to do a recap now and then of what we know so far, just to keep everything organised c: There will be a lot of repetition, and some updates on previous observations.
So far we can confirm that:
The show will be a combination of live action and CGI
It will be in French (not English, French)
Filmed in the Angoulême region of France, taking place around August
Production will be done by Antefilms and Norimage, a live action company
The casting call has now finished and actors for the seven main characters (includes William) have been found
Moonscoop has updated the official site with a new theme, logo and everything
The season will be released either late this year or early next
An English version will be released next year, though we're
Code Lyoko Evolution TrailerAt last, the perfect combination of live action and CGI in France4's first trailer for CLE. We see acting and voices, and Laura's introduction to the lab!
The advance screening was also today. Some staff from codelyoko.fr attended, and they released a few bits of information given to them by Moonscoop:
The opening at the beginning of the episodes has been completely changed, music included (so it won't be Un Monde Sans Danger).
At the moment, in the first two episodes of the series, there hasn't been an appearance of Laura, nor Sissi. Nonetheless, the existence of Sissi has been confirmed. On the other hand, no Herve or Nicolas.
The titles of the first two episodes are: XANA 2.0 and Cortex.
As the trailers and title have indicated, the Skid has been reprogrammed in episode two and the Cortex discovered in doing so.
The costume and design modifications appear in the first episode, without any explanation. In
Code Lyoko Evolution: News Update 15/6/2012Again not much, but something!
Storyboard art for the real world, featuring an interesting style. And with two guys standing in the way.
Awful lot of work to go into a storyboard imo, but yeah.
Oh, and a picture of the school they're filming at.
EDIT: Just a minor thing, there was a lot of discussion about it on Tumblr, so I got one of the maximised images someone made and did this, pointing out who I think is who. The only one I'm not sure about is the one I've labelled Yumi, because it might actually be Aelita but it's hard to tell. But the person standing next to Ulrich two panels beneath that is definitely Yumi.
And no Odd :c But William's there.
EDIT 2: New image of the megapod, fully rendered!
Code Lyoko Evolution: Casting and real worldMoonscoop you bloody troll.
Here, have the casting video!
...with things over the actors' faces.
You can just see some of them in the background...also Odd's hair! And Aelita's hair! Looking great! *jumps around*
Recent additions: extras casting and two Xana videos.
Code Lyoko Evolution: Odd and Jeremie's actors!Finally!
Marin Lafitte as Jeremie, and Gulliver Bevernaege as Odd.
I think there are also some pictures out of the gang behind the scenes, but I haven't yet found the source so they're all spread over the place. But here's a Yumi-less group photo for now!
Codelyoko.fr has made a page on the actors with high-quality photos and correct names. Now we know the blonde's name is Laura, and she's a completely new character.
Code Lyoko Evolution: New Video!EDIT: The video has now been made private, and I'm sorry about that but I can't do anything about it. Nothing was shown aside from sets, so you aren't missing out on seeing the actors or anything.
BUT a new article was just released, revealing that Quentin Merabet, who we thought to be William, is actually Ulrich's actor. And the person who we thought was Ulrich, Diego Mestanza, is actually William. Here's our list of known actors now:
Aelita - Léonie Berthonnaud
Ulrich - Quentin Merabet
Code Lyoko Evolution: Ninjas and Megapod in actionWe're probably not supposed to see these yet, but these were released on France 4's site. New videos of Odd driving the Megapod, and Ninjas in action in the Cortex.
They're low-ish quality and will probably be officially released later.
Code Lyoko Evolution: William's actor?There's reason to believe that William's actor will be Quentin Merabet, for a number of reasons including his Twitter, Facebook and page with his acting agency. He's 21, but still looks like he could be William. And we saw in the casting video his hair was cut shorter, so there's no need to freak out about that.
No official word from articles or Moonscoop yet, but it's looking pretty likely.
EDIT: Turns out this is Ulrich's actor, haha.
First look at Code Lyoko EvolutionAccording to Code Lyoko's Facebook they're going to be unveiling the 'first look' at CLE tomorrow at 10am PST (6pm in France, 3am in Sydney (dammit)) . This could be the poster we found before with the actors' faces, and I certainly hope it isn't, but until tomorrow I can't be sure. Stay tuned!
Nothing to do with the above, but Quentin now has a Tumblr!
Oh yeah, it's a video! Shows some scanner scenes, lift scenes, CG...lookin pretty great in my opinion but there are a few complaints in the comments. No faces though, and a lot of frowning going on with the CG.
New photo! Not high quality, but it's decent and big so it makes me happy. Finally the actors full body...sorta. Close enough.
Oh and since people have been wondering a lot, Odd's actor Gulliver is fifteen.
And another photo
Code Lyoko Evolution: Studio 3DEDIT: Remember a while back there was a video showing how they do the CGI construction of the factory, school and lab but it got removed? Well it's back, and in its best quality. There's a little bit that was repeated with commentary in Studio 3D part 2, but I'm pretty sure the holomap stuff is completely new. Check it out below.
New SUBBED video, in two parts with an explanation on how they do the 3D animation.
Oh, and a new photo with new CGI poses.
