DISNEY BRANDED TELEVISION AND DISNEY EMEA ORIGINAL PRODUCTIONS CELEBRATE NEXT 100 YEARS OF DISNEY ANIMATED STORYTELLING
Disney Branded Television and Disney Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) took to the stage at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival to announce new projects, debut sneak-peeks, and highlight the expansion of current hit series that are poised to usher in the next century of Disney storytelling.
Titled “The Next 100,” the presentation centered on both Disney’s storied legacy in animation, as well as how the company is creating the next generation of hits. Hélène Etzi, country manager and general manager of media for The Walt Disney Company France, opened the presentation with Orion Ross, vice president of Animation for The Walt Disney Company EMEA, and Ayo Davis, president of Disney Branded Television, making several announcements.
Ross announced greenlights for the all-new preschool adventure series “Magicampers,” set to premiere globally on Disney+ and Disney Junior next year, and the original comedy series “The Sunnyridge 3.” He also gave attendees a first look at the official trailer for the sci-fi anthology “Kizazi Moto: Generation Fire,” premiering July 5 on Disney+. New episodes of fan-favorite “Chip ‘n’ Dale: Park Life,” coming later this year, were revealed, and the latest artwork for the upcoming EMEA originals “The Doomies” and “Dragon Striker” was unveiled.
Davis gave attendees a sneak peek of upcoming series and made several announcements, including the greenlight of “Disney Junior’s Ariel,” a new series inspired by “The Little Mermaid.” Executive producer Lynne Southerland answered questions onstage and previewed an early animation test featuring Ariel and fan-favorite character Flounder.
Davis also announced the new Disney Channel series “StuGo,” as well as renewals for four popular series: season four of “Marvel’s Spidey and his Amazing Friends,” season three of “Firebuds,” season three of “The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder” and season two of “Kiff.” She also shared sneak peeks of several animated shorts, along with other announcements (see below).
Ross and Davis commented: “We’re delighted to be in Annecy announcing our continued commitment to working with leading studios and creators here in France and across the globe, to bring new voices, universal stories and brilliant animation to kids and family audiences around the world.”
