Amazon Prime US gets hold of Dream Defenders

The streaming deal with Singapore's Tiny Island Productions is timed with a Popeyes restaurant partnership and the release of a VR tie-in app.
April 19, 2017

Singapore-based Tiny Island Productions’ sci-fi series Dream Defenders has made its debut on Amazon Prime Video in the US.

The toon, which follows 14-year-old twins who travel into the realm of human dreams, originally premiered stateside on 3NET, a joint-venture between Discovery Communications, Sony and IMAX. It has since been picked up by Hulu, Discovery Family and multiplatform kids network Kabillion. Internationally, it has aired in Europe on Planeta Junior and Super RTL, as well as in 19 Asian countries on Dreamworks TV.

To mark Tiny Island’s latest US deal, the prodco has teamed up with Splash Entertainment and Popeyes Restaurants to launch a special Dream Defenders kids meal. Fans will receive a limited-edition 3D Viewer allowing them to see Dream Defenders clips, as well as a 3D Make-A-Scene pack that lets them recreate or play out new scenes from the show.

Meanwhile, in collaboration with Presence Pictures, Tiny Island has launched a Dream Defenders VR app for iPhone devices. The app is compatible with Google cardboard, and can also be played without goggles. To that end, Tiny Island is looking for additional toy and game licensing partners to expand its VR game with micro-transactions and/or toy-packs. The company is also in talks in China to grow the brand in the region.
