Firefly Brand Management has been appointed the exclusive global licensing agency for upcoming CG-animated feature Arctic Justice. The movie features the voices of Jeremy Renner, Heidi Klum, James Franco, John Cleese, Omar Sy, Anjelica Huston and Alec Baldwin, and is directed by Aaron Woodley. It centers on a rag-tag group of inexperienced heroes who come together to save the arctic and foil the plans of a sinister walrus who plans to accelerate global warming.
Open Road will release the CG-animated movie in 2018. Animation work for the film is being completed at AMBI’s Toronto based studio, AIC Studios. The movie is financed and produced by AMBI and its principals, Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi.

AMBI CEO Andrea Iervolino adds, “We certainly want to keep fans engaged with the property, so engaging Firefly, who are amazingly creative and great at what they do, to handle licensing, makes all the sense in the world for us.”
