Paris-based Cyber Group Studios and Russian animation company Soyuzmultfilm Studio are going to work together to co-produce two new animated series–Digital Girl (pictured) and Magic Chess Odyssey–which are both already in development.
The two companies will jointly develop and produce the content with Cyber Group handling worldwide distribution outside Russia.
Digital Girl is a 26 x 22-minute CGI-animated series about 14-year-old super heroin Chrissie who must confront villainous Hack Girl in order to save the digital networks she calls home.
The other project is also a 26 x 22-minute CGI-animated series. Magic Chess Odyssey tells the story of a chess board with supernatural powers that alters the life of children around the world. The studios are partnering with the World Chess Federation to make the brains-over-board animated series feel as close to a real chess game as possible.
The news comes as Cyber Group continues to spread its content internationally with new partners including its project with Dublin’s Brown Bag Films Sadie Sparks, which is set to bow on Disney Channel EMEA in 2019. It also recently partnered with distribution company Pacific Media Group to launch wolf cub series The Tales of Tatonka across China.
