Disney+, Disney Junior and France Télévisions have picked up a new CG-animated preschool series co-produced by South Africa’s Triggerfish Animation (pictured) and Hasbro’s eOne.
Kiya is a 52 x 11-minute series about a group of seven-year-old African girls whose magical headbands turn them into superheroes. The original idea from Triggerfish (Mama K’s Team 4) was developed for television by eOne and France’s Frog Box.
Triggerfish, eOne and Frogbox are producing the series in partnership with Disney Junior and France Télévisions, with French studio TeamTO providing animation services. eOne previously worked with Frog Box and TeamTO on its preschool series PJ Masks, which was recently added to Disney+ in the UK.
Kiya is expected to bow in 2023 on Disney Junior and Disney+ globally, as well as on France Télévisions. Plans are also in place to create YouTube content, music, apps, audio, toys and other consumer products based on the IP.
