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.

4Kids Entertainment is hoping to revive its Saturday morning offerings with a brand new series, Tai Chi Chasers. The toon will be a mix of traditional cel and CG animation, twisting an anime series for the American audience — similar to the company’s efforts with Dinosaur King; bringing a Japanese series worldwide. The series follows the adventures of Rai, a descendant of the Tigeroids, a race of powerful, peaceful beings. The Tigeroids are in an ongoing battle off earth with the Dragonoids in a parallel universe. Both groups aim to recover 500 powerful artifacts, the lost Tai Chi Symbols; and those that posses the symbols will have power enough to conquer the universe. Fans are hoping to get their first look at the toon at MIPTV, with the series set to air in early 2011.

Check out the clip after the break, entirely in Italian, which features Geronimo struggling to keep up with the housework, as well as the opening theme.
