Disney+ has acquired all five seasons (130 x 22 minutes) of Miraculous Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir from ZAG and ON Kids & Family to launch worldwide outside of Brazil, Korea and China.
This marks the first time the series will be available on the SVOD, which is planning to stream the 78 existing episodes, as well as the upcoming fourth and fifth seasons that are on track to deliver in 2021 and 2022, respectively.
Disney+ had already picked up rights to debut the brand’s two TV movies. Miraculous World: New York, United HeroeZ, launched in December 2020, and Miraculous World: Shanghai—The Legend of Lady Dragon will drop later this year.
Disney will also air Miraculous seasons four and five on its linear channels everywhere in the world except the US, Canada, Brazil, Australia, Korea and China. Disney EMEA previously ordered the fourth season in 2018.
The CG-animated series centers around two teens with secret superhero identities who fight crime together. France’s Zagtoon, ON Kids & Family’s Method Animation, Brazilian producer Globosat and Italy’s DeAgostini Editore co-produce the show, with backing from Disney Channel EMEA, French broadcaster TF1 and Japan’s Toei Animation.
Disney EMEA originally ordered the series, which currently airs in more than 120 countries and is also available on Netflix. Disney Channel US acquired the first two seasons in 2019.
