Production Starts on New Series, Go Away, Unicorn!
Sonar Entertainment has just started production on a new animated adaptation of the children’s book Go Away, Unicorn! by Emily Mullock. The 52 x 11 animated series (with 10 x 2 shorts) is targeted towards kids aged 6 to 9 and will debut on Disney Channel in the US and on Corus Entertainment’s YTV in Canada in Fall 2018. A multiple territory rollout will follow via Disney.
Go Away, Unicorn! is a colorful tale that focuses on the adventures of a girl named Alice and her exuberant unicorn, both of whom learn an important lesson that friendships can blossom out of the unlikeliest of places. Chris Diamantopoulos (Mickey Mouse, Silicon Valley) and Rebecca Husain (The Good Doctor, Beat Bugs) will star as lead voice talent.
“Go Away, Unicorn! is a beautiful, original children’s book with a strong girl character who is not afraid to be different” said Andrea Gorfolova, President, Kids, Family & Factual, Sonar Ent. “We are excited to see this wonderful story come to life on the screen and are grateful to our partners for believing in this project.”
