As an ancient prophecy entwines around the magical gem in Mia’s bracelet, she embarks on an adventurous journey with Iko, her partner, to the most remote islands of Centopia. There, Mia not only faces a powerful enemy but also takes her destiny into her own hands. Together with Iko, she is ready to face any challenge that comes her way.
Mia and me
Mia’s tale began when her parents mysteriously disappeared after a terrible accident, presumed dead. Mia was sent to a boarding school close to Florence, Italy. One day she discovered an amazing secret: From her parents, Mia inherited an ancient book and a magical bracelet that allows her to enter the enchanting world of Centopia. In Centopia Mia is an elf and the only one who can understand and talk to unicorns living there. In the fairytale realm, she finds friends among the fantastical creatures. Always at her side are her best friends, the elves Yuko and Mo, the unicorn Onchao and the pan Phuddle. The imminent new movie recounts Mia’s first theatrical adventure: She must stand up against Toxor, a monstrous evil toad. Toxor threatens Centopia and seeks to make it his personal poisonous pit. On top of that, he holds the key to her parent’s mysterious disappearance…
To date, three seasons of the series recount Mia’s adventures in the real world and in the fantastic world of Centopia with her elf and unicorn friends. A fourth season is currently in production and set for delivery by end of 2022. The series has so far sold to more than 170 countries.
