With a growing catalogue of classic and unique kids animations, Powerkids Entertainment has positioned itself as an ideal partner for co-productions in the genre, as demostrated by their latest titles, Dragonero, Martin Mystere and Young Achievers Academy.
“We are very proud about these three products,” said Manoj Mishra, CEO of Powerkids Entertainment.
Dragonero is a co-production partnership between Sergio Bonelli, RAI Kids and Powerkids, and adapts a long-running fantasy comic of the same name. “We are now in the second season,” adds Mishra.
During Mipcom, Powerkids presented the teaser for Martin Mystère another co-production with Sergio Bonelli. Mystère -also known as Martin Mistery- is a beloved character from the legendary comic book creator Alfredo Castelli.
“The third one we wanted to present at the market is Young Achievers Academy,” points out the executive. “Its a show created in partnership with Sony Pictures Networks India.”
The series is a thrilling blend of entertainment and adventure, designed for children aged six years and older. It features young talents excelling in diverse fields, from aviation and skydiving to underwater exploration, spy training, martial arts and advanced combat operations.
These are online the latest titles of a very deep catalogue, by a company that specializes in IP investment and animation creation.
“We came to Mipcom to secure partners for our projects, co-productions partners, new distribution deals and sales for all our IPs, which are classic IPs like Jungle Book, Peter Pan and Robin Hood, to name a few,” explains Mishra.
