Geronimo Stilton’s Third Season Goes Into Production
The third season of Atlantyca Entertainment and Moonscoop’s popular 2D-animated series Geronimo Stilton has entered the production stage. The 78 x 23 series will be produced with the help of RAI Fiction, France TV, and M6, and is slated for fall of 2014. The announcement was made by Atlantyca’s head of animation department and exec producer Caterina Vacchi and Moonscoop’s CEO Christophe di Sabatino earlier this week.
Geronimo Stilton is based on the popular children’s book series of the same name, and originally launched on RAI 2 in September 2009. The series has since garnered international praise and is currently broadcast in over 100 different territories, with the 2nd season scheduled to launch on ARD’s (Germany) KIKA Channel this November.
Geronimo Stilton follows the titular super famous mouse journalist, who is also the head of the Geronimo Stilton Media Group. The third season will feature new friends as well as the return of old ones, who will get involved in new sensational journeys set in distinctive locations.
“Geronimo Stilton has demonstrated, consistently, to be incredibly popular with young audiences in many key territories around the world,” noted Vacchi. “The Geronimo Stilton brand–whether through the animated series, books, games, or live stage shows —is an established success. We know that this is the right time to start working on the next chapter of Geronimo’s animated adventures and are so excited to start working on bringing his newest stories to the screen.”
