P. King Ducking producer Little Airplane Productions is developing The Butterfly Fairy Friends, a new 52 x 11-minute animated series created by Studio 100 founders Hans Bourlon and Gert Verhulst.
Aimed at girls ages four to seven, the series unfolds when best friends Daisy, Rose and Iris discover three magical flowers. When picked, the blooms become wands used to summon special butterflies that help the girls transform into the Butterfly Fairy Friends. Together, the girls use their magical abilities and real-world skills to help their friends solve problems, and fend off an evil bee queen that’s plotting to steal the magical pollen from the group’s wands.
The project is the first series developed by Little Airplane in collaboration with Studio 100 and its founders since it was acquired by the Belgian company in December 2017.
Phil Molloy (Bob the Builder) wrote the pilot script and the series features an educational curriculum by Beth Richman focused on teamwork, bravery, kindness and empathy.
The Butterfly Fairy Friends will be shopped by Little Airplane at MIFA during next month’s Annecy International Animation Film Festival in France.
