Disney Junior Greenlights New Preschool Series: Nina Needs to Go


nina-needs-to-go

Disney EMEA has recently announced that they have given the go signal on a brand new animated short series targeted towards preschoolers, titled Nina Needs to Go. The series is scheduled to premiere on Disney Junior in early 2014 and will be airing in more than 150 countries worldwide.

Nina Needs to Go focuses on the eponymous four year old girl, who usually “needs to go” at the most inopportune moments. The series will follow Nina as she tries to use her initiative and wits in order to overcome the obstacles between her and the nearest bathroom.

Each story will take place in a different location, and will feature imaginative play as Nina becomes so immersed in her surroundings that she tends to forget that she has to go to the bathroom until the last moment.

“Nina is a character that our Disney Junior audience can relate to, and the situations Nina finds herself in are recognisable to all parents,” comments Beth Gardiner, Vice President, Production & Development, Disney Junior EMEA. “ArthurCox has taken a universal scenario and given it a funny and heart-warming twist.”

“Nina Needs To Go is based on my real experiences with my daughter,” comments Sarah Cox, Creative Director and CEO of ArthurCox. “Dramatic car journeys, missed trains and a back track through the whole of the Alhambra in Spain in search of a bathroom are real situations that have inspired each episode. A fabulous creative team has helped us create action-packed ‘race against time’ scenarios to excite and amuse a family audience.”

“I am delighted to be part of Disney Junior’s Nina Needs To Go. The show is so beautifully animated and when I first saw the drawings I thought they really had warmth and character,” added Miriam Margolyes, who voices Nana Sheila. “Having voiced a Disney character many years ago in Mulan it feels so good to return to the Disney family, voicing Nana Shelia who is a rather fabulous ninja granny!”
