Montreal, Canada-based animation house Sardine Productions and Barcelona-based distributor GoldBee are launching the third season of their 52 x one-minute animated series, Leon.
Commissioning broadcaster Radio Canada debuted the third season in September, and these new episodes will launch for distribution at Kidscreen Summit this month. At the same time, the brand’s third interactive comic book will launch on iTunes.
GoldBee’s MD Christophe Goldberger will handle season three’s international distribution (excluding Iberia and Latin America).
The new episodes will bring the series’ total to 156.
Leon‘s titular character lives in a world where the laws of physics barely apply, and he is fearless in his pursuit of fun. It is based on the book series by Annie Groovie, and has expanded both into the digital world with a website, mobile games and interactive comic books, as well as into consumer products with three board games.
Last year, GoldBee also saw Sardine Productions’ mobile-based, non-verbal comedy Chop Chop Ninja Challenge picked up by a number of global broadcasters.
