L.A.-based MarVista Entertainment has secured Latin American distribution rights to Dentsu Entertainment USA’s animated series LBX (Little Battlers eXperience).
MarVista will introduce 52 half-hour episodes of the Japanese toon to partners in the LatAm region. LBX debuted on Nicktoons in the US last August and was greenlit for a second season of 26 eps, which will debut this fall.
The LBX franchise has a growing consumer products program, including a line of action figure model kits called SprüKits, launched by Bandai America last fall. Additional licensees launching LBX-themed products at retail include Fifth Sun (apparel), Trends International (posters) and Zwyer Industries (art book).
