California-based toy manufacturer Funrise has entered into a multi-year partnership to serve as global master toy partner for Paramount Pictures’ animated feature film Amusement Park. Funrise will create a line that includes figures, play sets, plush, role-play and collectibles.
Amusement Park is slated for a March 2019 release in the US, and Funrise’s products are set to roll out globally early next year. Produced by Paramount Animation, Nickelodeon Movies and Ilion Animation Studios, the 3D-animated adventure/comedy features a voice cast including Matthew Broderick, Jennifer Garner, Kenan Thompson, Ken Jeong, Mila Kunis, John Oliver and Jeffrey Tambor.
Additionally, Paramount and Nickelodeon have announced an animated Amusement Park TV series is in development for 2020.
In September, Space Race tapped Funrise as global master toy partner for its animated preschool series Space Racers. The toy line will hit global retailers this fall. And in June, Funrise was named global master toy licensee by Saban Brands and Cirque du Soleil Média for the animated preschool brand Luna Petunia.
