“The way we ended up deciding whether or not to include the Red Ribbon Army was that we first talked about how we wanted the battle to play out on Earth,” Iyoku began. “So when we decided to have them fight on Earth, we started saying, ‘Once there was a Red Ribbon Army,’ and how could this be a battle against an army and not just a lead- one-on-one. And everyone in the military has their own motivations and way of thinking, including Magenta and Carmine.”

Teasing what those outer motivations and way of thinking might actually be, Iyoku noted as such, “So we thought that because not everyone thinks the same way, we’d be able to paint a picture. of an interesting antagonist, which is how we ended up settling into the Red Ribbon Army.” So it looks like there’s even more going on with the new Red Ribbon Army Androids than expected, and perhaps fans should keep a closer look at the new Army additions before the next one is released. movie.
