Gormiti (known as Gormiti: Nature Unleashed) is an Italian action and adventure CGI animated series that was premiered on September 17, 2012 through January 9, 2013 and also co-produced from Giochi Preziosi and Mondo TV.
After the first Gormiti series was successful among Italy and Europe, production companies decided to revive it in a combination of 3D and computer-generated animation in high definition.
The new 26x22′ series is titled Gormiti: Nature Unleashed. According to Michelle Azoury, head of sales and brand manager at Mondo TV, it “does not discount the earlier series but does not directly address it either.”
Three thousand years ago, the Island of Gorm faced its gravest hour. Magor, the Volcano tribe's most dreaded leader, was at the zenith of his power. His dark rage and volcanic powers threatened to consume the entire island along with every living Gormiti. He was repelled only through the selfless combat and incredible power of the Invincible Lords of Nature. Called from the four tribes, Earth, Air, Sea, and Forest, they were guided by their wise and mysterious benefactor, the Old Sage.
The Lords knew that a victory against Magor was temporary if the source of their new found power remained intact. The wisest among the original Lords devised a brilliant, but drastic plan but to divide the source of all their power, The Heart of Gorm into five Gorm Stones, and hide each piece deep within their respective kingdoms. To ensure that these Gorm Stones remained forever apart, the Lords made a difficult but necessary decision that changed their island nations forever. They constructed massive, impenetrable walls separating their formerly unified kingdoms for all time. To further ensure Magor was lost to time, each Lord allowed Old Sage to remove their memories of the Gorm Stone locations from their minds.
It was an enormous price to pay. The Gormiti had forged a wonderful society by living and working together. However, if peace was to prosper, there was no other way. Or so they thought. Each of the Elemental Lords of Gorm retreated to his kingdom, sealing it off from his allies forever. The legends of this epic battle and the willpower it took to complete it lived on through generations in the form of a story known as The Way. The story is a road map that details the legendary Lords' plans for hard fought peace and provides hope for future generations to continue The Way.
And for over three thousand years the peace has lasted until today, the young Agrom, prince of the Earth Tribe found a crack in his kingdom's wall.
