FUNimation to Distribute Guardians of Luna

FUNimation has agreed to distribute the Cybergraphix Animation feature movie Guardians of Luna, currently in development.

The anime-style film’s staff includes writer Michael Reaves as story editor and Cindy Yamauchi as character designer.

The movie is about four heroes descended from an ancient race of shape-shifters who are charged with protecting an ancestral power source from a ruthless mogul.

Animation will be done by APPP Co. Ltd. and is expected to begin in 2010.

‘We have always sought to build strong partnerships for our productions,’ said Avi Melman, CEO at Cybergraphix and executive producer of the series. ‘Having FUNimation as a partner will help build a strong distribution network and ultimately, increased exposure for Guardians of Luna.’
