Canadian animation company Nelvana Enterprises has announced D.N.Ace, an all-new comedy-adventure that’ll mix science and fun. The series will be Executive Produced by Matthew Wexler, whose previous credits include Spin Master properties like Bakugan, Paw Patrol and Tenkai Knights.

The series follows curious, adventure-loving, mischief-making, proudly nerdy, 12-year-old Ace Ripley who suddenly learns he holds an incredible ability to manipulate DNA by fusing the genes of a living thing with any other thing, to create something entirely new. The hero-in-the-making uses his newfound power to create ridiculous, amazing, and even terrifying mash-ed up creatures, and tries to save his town from total chaos while trying to have the time of his life.

“We can’t wait to introduce this stand-out series with its distinctive mix of sci-fi, fact, laughter, and thrills to our viewers,” said Scott Dyer, President, Nelvana Enterprises. “Kids love to create and dream up the unimaginable, and the inventive possibilities of D.N.Ace and its mashup mayhem will resonate well with our audience.”

D.N.Ace will run on Teletoon in Canada and is aimed at children 6-9. The company has set forth on 80 11-minute episodes (aired as 40 22-minutes). The Japanese animation house behind Pokemon and Beyblade Burst, OLM, will represent the series alongside Dentsu in Japan. Both will also consult on the series.

Canadian toy and media company Spin Master has a surprising new project on the way. The company behind Paw Patrol, Rusty Rivets, Bakugan and Tenkai Knights is working with The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman to adapt his child-friendly comic book Super Dinosaur into an animated series. Described as an action adventure comedy aimed at boys 6-11, the show will launch sometime next year on a Canadian channel owned by Corus Entertainment. Spin Master is currently looking for other English and French broadcasters to sign on for the initial 2018 year.

The story? A group of mutated dinosaurs commanded by the vile Max Maximus routinely attempt to destroy the world. It’s up to the walking talking armored pair of a boy named Derek and his T-Rex to stop them.

Spin Master plans on launching a range of toys alongside the show’s broadcast. Additionally merchandise will become available one the series gains larger distribution internationally.

Super Dinosaur’s CG animation will be produced by Vancouver’s Atomic Cartoons. The original comic book series was first launched in 2011 and was published by Image Comics.

Back in 2014, fans of a sneaky raccoon thief, Sly Cooper, were treated with news that the beloved PlayStation video game franchise would be heading to the big screen. Blockade Entertainment, Rainmaker Entertainment, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Film Financial Services and Jungsu Broadcasting Corporation were set to collaborate on a feature film due out in 2016. Well, 2017 is almost over and there’s not been much movement on it since. In fact, the movie’s official website now leads to an error page.

What happened? Three words: Ratchet & Clank. The same five partners behind Sly Cooper were also behind another theatrical adaptation of a PlayStation property. Unfortunately for those involved, things didn’t go to plan. Ratchet & Clank launched in theaters in April 2016. The film wasn’t well received critically, and commercially, it didn’t do any better. Produced on a budget around $20 million, Ratchet grossed a slim $13 million at the global box office – that’s a number before the theaters take their cut of the ticket sales.

Ratchet & Clank’s financial failure hit Rainmaker, the Canadian animation studio behind the film, hard. The company took a large loss on their $10 million investment in the feature. Shortly after, Rainmaker pulled the Sly Cooper feature from its production slate and moved it back into development. At this point the company had spent $300,520 on the project. Rainmaker’s president and chief creative officer, Michael Hefferon, told Playback in September 2016 that they’d “rethink timing, how we release and even budget numbers that we consider releasing films at.”

Late in 2016, Rainmaker merged with Frederator Networks and Ezrin Hirsh Entertainment to form Wow Unlimited Media. Kevin Munroe, who was attached to direct Sly and previously held that role on Ratchet, moved onto other projects.

Toonbarn has come to learn that earlier this year Rainmaker relinquished their rights to the property in exchange for $132,990 from the film’s other partners. The animation studio will receive an additional $200,000 if the film receives the green light from someone else.

It’s not all bad news for Sly fans, though. Earlier this year, PGS, Technicolor, Blockade and Sony Interactive Entertainment confirmed a Sly Cooper animated series was in development. Brad Foxhoven, founder and CEO of Blockade Entertainment, has stated that the company would like to see Sly hit the small screen first before another attempt at a theatrical film is made.

A couple of months back we showcased Little Astro Boy, a new take on the classic Osamu Tezuka robot superhero from the French studios Planet Nemo Animation and Something Big. Produced in collaboration with Tezuka Production and aimed at upper preschoolers, the new 11-minute 52 episode series will debut sometime in 2019. Here’s a teaser of what you can expect:

The eco-systems of planet Earth are endangered. Lucky for us, a super-powered robot boy is flying to rescue! astro in on a mission to help anyone anywhere in the world with a problem involving natural phenomena. Go little Astro Boy ! GO !

Production began in April before moving full steam ahead in June. Animation work is scheduled to go beyond February of next year. Virgile Trouillot handled the character designs and serves as the creative director. Little Astro Boy will be available in English, French and Japanese. The Weinstein Company has signed on to distribute the series internationally.

The latest iteration in the franchise that has generated over $2.6 billion in retail sales draws some inspiration from the earlier 2014 Little Astro Boy anime. Tezuka super fans may also notice the first animated appearance of Atom Cat (known as Astro Kitty in the English version). The project is independent of Caribara Production, Monaco’s Shibuya Productions, and Tezuka Production’s Astro Boy Reboot series.

According to recent reports from Deadline.com and the Wall Street Journal, The Walt Disney Co. have resumed talks to acquire some of the assets of Fox, amid reports of other big players entering the arena in a bid to acquire Fox’s properties. Some of the interested parties include NBCUniversal owner Comcast, and Sony.

The deal with Disney is said to cover Fox’s movie and TV studios, as well as its international holdings in ventures including a stake in the UK satellite company Sky. Fox News, Fox Broadcasting Co., and Fox Sports Networks are not part of the deal but even with their exclusion, the acquisition is big news because if it comes to fruition, the Walt Disney Co. will be one step closer to finally acquiring all of Marvel’s film properties under one roof.

It is reported that Murdoch and family, which hold 39% of the 21st Century Fox voting shares, will decide by the end of the year whether there will be any sale moving forward, and to whom.

It was only last week that the new My Hero Academia game, dubbed One’s Justice, has been announced for the Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch, but as it turns out – the game is already far along enough that Bandai Namco was able to share a bunch of new screenshots, coinciding with the official website going live.

If the screenshots have not made it clear yet, One’s Justice is an action game that will have players batting it out using their Quirks across gorgeous cel-shaded environments that mimic the look of the anime it was based on. It is also said that the stages will have destructible environments that offer their own in-game advantages.

No concrete details have been provided regarding the roster, but protagonist Izuku Midoriya and villain Tomura Shigaraki feature prominently in the screenshots, which should prove that at least one of them is playable.

As far back as 2015, toy manufacturer Spin Master has already expressed a desire to reboot the hit property Bakugan, and while news have since quieted down over said reboot, their recent Q3 2017 financial call gives fans hope: it has been revealed that Bakugan will be returning with a new toy line and a new TV show soon. Soon-ish, at least, as the plans put the schedule somewhere between 2018 and 2019.

The news is pretty darn official, as it came from Spin Master’s own Global President and COO Ben Gadbois, who listed Bakugan as one of the “several exciting TV shows” in the company’s entertainment group. Mr Gadbois also expressed plans to expand on their other properties Paw Patrol, Abby Hatchers, Rusty Rivets, and Hatchimals.

According to a recent announcement, Warner Bros. Television Group’s digital studio Blue Ribbon Content is currently hard at work on a new spin off based on the Scooby-Doo franchise, titled Daphne and Velma. What makes this spin-off project noteworthy is that it’s a live-action series starring Sarah Jeffery (Shades of Blue) and Sarah Gilman (Last Man Standing) as the titular female sleuths.

Of course, this is not the first live action appearance of Daphne and Velma, as there have been several live action takes on the Mystery Inc crew (official projects, and unofficial takes such as the one featured in the cult comedy film Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back.) The official synopsis reveals that this is a prequel of sorts to the Scooby Doo franchise, following the adventures of the duo before they teamed up with Scooby and the rest of the gang:

Before their eventual team-up with Scooby and the gang, bright & optimistic Daphne and whip-smart & analytical Velma are both mystery-solving teens who are best friends but have only met online — until now. Daphne has just transferred to Velma’s school, Ridge Valley High, an incredible tech-savvy institute with all the latest gadgets provided by the school’s benefactor, tech billionaire Tobias Bloom. And while competition is fierce among the students for a coveted internship at Bloom Innovative, Daphne and Velma dig beyond all the gadgets and tech to investigate what is causing some of the brightest students in school to disappear — only to emerge again in a zombie-fied state.

The project is being produced with Ashley Tisdale and Jennifer Tisdale’s Blondie Girl Productions, and will be release by Warner Bros. Home Ent. in 2018. Lifeboat Prod. provides production services.

“Blondie Girl is committed to telling stories from a female perspective and we could not be more thrilled to give Daphne and Velma their own story,” said Ashley Tisdale and Jennifer Tisdale, producers and founders of Blondie Girl Productions. “It’s so exciting to partner with Warner Home Entertainment and Blue Ribbon Content to introduce a new generation to the smart, charismatic, fearless females that we all know and love.”

Big Bad Boo Studios’ hit animated show 1001 Nights will be debuting on the US Spanish-language network VME Kids this December, which should allow many Spanish-speaking households to enjoy animated stories as told by the determined storyteller Shahrzad. The series is currently enjoying success all over the world, as it airs in over 120 countries and translated to over 15 languages.

The series is based on the original tales, but freshens them up a bit to fit the target 6-9 year old kid demographic. It incorporates an educational curriculum companion series of books that reach over half a million children in developing countries through partnerships with schools, refugee camps, and UNICEF. Big Bad Boo is currently in production for Season 3 of the series, and has successfully negotiated licensing deals for comic books and merchandise in several territories.

We are beyond excited to have 1001 Nights airing on a Spanish-language network in the United States, reaching brand new audiences,’ says Shabnam Rezaei, president and co-founder of Big Bad Boo. “Hispanic-American kids and their families will be able to enjoy these classic tales, on Vme Kids which is a premium channel.”

The extremely talented crew at Lupus Films has recently produced a touching new Christmas ad for luxury brand Barbour, featuring the return of two favorite animated characters – Billy and his beloved pet dog from The Snowman and The Snowdog, which is a 2012 animated special based on Raymond Briggs’ books.

This new festive offering features a now adult Billy celebrating Christmas with a family of his own, but despite the years, it is revealed that he has never forgotten his old friend the Snowman. The ad then shows that when the snow falls on Christmas Eve, magic can and will happen.

“Lupus Films is always delighted to help expand the world of The Snowman and The Snowdog, and it was a pleasure to work alongside Barbour and Thinking Juice again to produce the upcoming Christmas campaign,” says Adam Jackson-Nocher, Lupus Films’ production manager. “It’s great to see iconic brands like Barbour supporting traditional animation in the UK and engaging with classic British storytelling, and we hope the audience enjoy watching the film as much as we have enjoyed making it!”

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has recently entered into a partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America in order to launch a Merry Minions Holiday Program. This joint venture celebrates the season alongside the home entertainment release of the CG animated blockbuster, Despicable Me 3.

Under the Merry Minions Holiday Program, the Boys & Girls Club members will engage in exciting Minion-themed activities designed to foster the values of friendship, teamwork, leadership, and creativity. Participating clubs in select markets — including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Dallas, Seattle, and others — will receive unique “Merry Minions” holiday kits containing a variety of Despicable Me 3 party, baking and craft items to help spread the holiday cheer.

The celebrations will run throughout the month of December, as the Boys & Girls Club kids will be working together in order to create holiday ornaments or gift items, decorate baked goods, design artwork inspired by the Minions, hold Minion-themed screening parties, and more. Group activities using the “Merry Minions” holiday kit elements are intended to foster the BGCA’s mission of teaching youths to be productive, caring and cooperative, themes also reflected in Despicable Me 3 and ideal for the holiday season. Clubs will have the opportunity to turn activities into fundraising events, community service projects, opportunities for volunteer support functions, gift-giving and mentoring/teaching lessons for youths.

Despicable Me 3 has grossed over $1 billion at the global box office and is available now on digital and on Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand and 4K Ultra HD on December 5, 2017.

Moreover, UYoung in China is currently airing Oggy & the Cockroaches, and has also secured TV and VOD rights for the following properties which are set to air next year: light-hearted pre-school toon Paprika, and kids’ wildlife series If I Were an Animal.

Marc du Pontavice, Founder and President at Xilam Animation, said: “Asia is an important region for us and we are thrilled to be expanding the presence of our programming there in 2018. We’ve had so much success with our shows to date and look forward to building on that next year.”
