Genius Partners with Frozen, Lion king Creatives For Rainbow Rangers
Genius Brands International, Inc. has partnered with Rob Minkoff and Shame Morris (director of Lion King and co-writer of Frozen, respectively) for the production of a new animated preschool series titled Rainbow Rangers. The new series will feature CGI animation and will consist of 52 x 11 episodes with Minkoff and Morris serving as producer and head writer, along with Tim Mansfield.
Rainbow Rangers is described as focusing on the adventures of seven unique magical girls who live on the other side of the rainbow. The girls serve as Earth’s guardians and protectors using teamwork, bravery, creativity, and compassion.
“Rainbow Rangers is an exciting premise with fantastic characters and an incredible world,” added Morris. “It’s also inspirational. It’s about the amazing power and strength of these seven magical girls. I truly enjoy writing stories that demonstrate girls can do anything, and when girls work together, well, anything is possible.”
“With two young children at home I’ve been exposed to a lot of TV animation lately and felt it was time to jump in with both feet,” explained Minkoff. “And the appeal of a team of young girls protecting the planet is undeniable and couldn’t be more timely. Rainbow Rangers is truly an incredible opportunity, and I’m very pleased to be working with GBI’s creative team.
