The new season will follow the exciting adventures of a new cast of characters, along with some familiar faces fans loyal to the Beyblade Burst franchise will immediately recognize. A legend among legends, top Blader Valt Aoi hosts an exhibition match featuring a revolutionary class of Bey: “Lightning Beys”. Inspired by the battle, two unknown brothers, Hyuga and Hikaru Hizashi, issue a challenge: armed with their own Lightning Beys Hyperion and Helios, this unlikely duo is going to topple Beyblade’s ruling elite. With their solar Beys in hand, the brothers are ready to begin their own legend of growth and adventure.

Fans can also look forward to the full season of Beyblade Burst Rise being available on DisneyNOW throughout the month of February.

Beyblade enthusiasts can already find the catchy Season 5 opening theme song, “We Got the Spin,” on the official Beyblade Burst YouTube Channel. This captivating, edgy track was written and performed by Konrad OldMoney and Seboria Peters, and is due for release on streaming platforms in early February ahead of the season premiere. The YouTube preview has already attracted over 1.5 million views.

Finally, long-time global master toy partner Hasbro will support the new season’s launch with the much-anticipated  Beyblade Burst Speedstorm product line. Fans will be able to launch into highspeed head-to-head battles with official Beyblade Burst Speedstorm tops that are designed to harness the power of the inescapable Power Vortex - an energy zone at the center of the Speedstorm Beystadium which has the ability to pull tops in and give them the ultimate speed boost.

Beyblade Burst first premiered on Disney XD US, in December 2016.
