Warner Bros. Animation will be introducing spankin’ new adventures for beloved classic characters with the debut of short-form series Looney Tunes Cartoons at the 2019 Annecy Int’l Animation Film Festival (June 10-15). Bugs, Daffy and the gang will reveal their new look during the Opening Ceremony on June 10, leading into the feature film Playmobil: The Movie.
The general public will also get to catch the cartoons June 10 as part of the open-air screenings.
On Wednesday, June 12, a special Looney Tunes Cartoons session will go behind-the-scenes and screen additional shorts in the company of executive producer Peter Browngardt (Uncle Grandpa, Secret Mountain Fort Awesome), supervising producer Alex Kirwan (character designer, DuckTales, Gravity Falls), Warner Bros. Animation VP of Series Audrey Diehl, and Warner Bros. Animation President Sam Register.
Looney Tunes Cartoons is a series of new short form cartoons starring the iconic and beloved Looney Tunes characters. With a crew of some of the premiere artists working in animation today, each “season” will produce 1,000 minutes of all-new Looney Tunes animation that will be distributed across multiple platforms — including digital, mobile and broadcast.
Looney Tunes Cartoons echoes the high production value and process of the original theatrical shorts, with a cartoonist-driven approach to storytelling. Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and other marquee characters will be featured in their classic pairings in simple, gag-driven and visually vibrant stories. Each cartoon will vary from one to six minutes in length and, from the premise on through to the jokes, will be “written” and drawn by the cartoonists, allowing their own personality and style to come through in each cartoon.
