Fresh animated content will air on new streaming platform, Disney+.
Xilam Animation has signed a deal with Disney to produce a new animated series based on Chip ‘n’ Dale for its new streaming platform, Disney+.
The news was confirmed by Disney this week at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival.
Xilam Animation will work closely with Disney’s London-based animation team on the project.
It will be fully produced by Xilam and will comprise 39 seven-minute episodes featuring Disney’s chipmunk troublemakers in a non-verbal, classic style comedy.
“We are very proud to have been chosen by Disney to bring back such iconic characters from the prestigious Disney repertoire thanks to the talent of Xilam’s teams,” said Marc du Pontavice, chairman and ceo of Xilam. “The distribution on the Disney+ platform will also mark a new milestone in Xilam’s penetration of the US market.”
