Disney EMEA has recently announced that production for a second season of the hit preschool series Henry Hugglemonster has officially begun. The series will be produced by Dublin’s Brown Bag Films under the guidance of Disney’s London-based production hub.
Henry Hugglemonster follows the titular monster as he guides preschoolers through his wonderful world while showing the ups and downs of being part of a loving monster family. The second season is set to air on Disney Junior in Autumn of 2014.
Nancy Kanter, Executive Vice President Original Programming and General Manager, Disney Junior Worldwide comments, “The incredibly talented team at Brown Bag Films has created an engaging series for Disney Junior that delivers everyday life lessons and models positive family and community relationships that are relatable to audiences around the world. A second season will build off of this terrific start and create even more connections with kids and families.”
Beth Gardiner, Vice President, Production, Disney Junior, EMEA leads a Disney team working closely with Brown Bag Films to deliver the 52 x 11 minute second series with inspiration again coming from Ireland’s Children’s Literature Laureate, Niamh Sharkey, author of I’m a Happy Hugglewug, the illustrated storybook that the original series was based on.
