Paris-based Planet Nemo Animation has acquired the worldwide distribution rights to Super Builders, a brand-new animated preschool TV series and movie from Beijing-headquartered kids and family entertainment company Uyoung Culture & Media.
Planet Nemo will distribute the 52 x 11-minute action-driven comedy from BAFTA-winning creator Dan Berlinka and Sean Carson, as well as an 80-minute CGI-animated feature written by Armin Prediger and Marteinn Thorisson (Niko, All Creatures Big & Small) that’s scheduled for a 2016 release.
