When four kids discover the hidden One Tower it is as if all their heroic dreams suddenly became reality. Together with the One Tower they had also found the Elemental Bracers, which allows them to call and fight with the legendary Gormiti. But the Tower revealed itself for a reason: the Darkans, Gormiti ancestral enemies, are back, threatening all living beings in Gorm. Unprepared, the kids need to learn how to become true heralds. With the help of Ao‐ki, the girl tasked to train them, the new heroes will master the Elemental Bracers, call the legendary Gormiti and save their world. Gormiti is a series about team work, friendship, achieving goals and having fun!

Produced by Giochi Preziosi and Planeta Junior with animation from Kotoc, the 52×11 minute comedic action series features a team of international writers headed by LA‐based Romain Van Liemt, creator of the show. The new production will be aimed at boys aged 5-8.

Originally a series of trading figures and cards the brand debuted in 2005. The Italian property received its first animated incarnation in 2008 with the Fench co-pro Gormiti: The Lords of Nature Return!. That three season 65 episode show was then succeeded in 2012 by the CG series Gormiti Nature Unleashed. The franchise became one of the leading boy’s action properties in Europe, with 500 million figures sold, generating over €1.5 billion in retail sales. It was the basis for loads of other merchandise, including video games, apparel and other products.

The new Gormiti will debut later this year in Europe. Giochi Preziosi is the global master toy partner and has a full suite of merchandise planned for the series. Planeta Junior is handling TV sales and Consumer Products worldwide. The show will be their focal point at their MIPTV booth. The show is represented in Benelux, German-speaking Europe, Scandinavia, Africa and the Middle East by Studio 100/m4e.
