Zag’s 3D CG-animated action-sitcom Miraculous – Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir (26 x 22) — which begins premiering on cable and linear broadcast platforms around the world this fall — has signed on with a wide-reaching series of licensing partners. With broadcast reach covering more than 120 markets thanks to key partners like Disney EMEA, TF1 France, ABC Australia and EBS Korea, the brand has already attracted major licensees.
Global Master Toy partner Bandai will lead the pack with a toy program roll-out including dolls, figures, plush and role play. Rubies Costume Company will also be a cornerstone licensee, offering Ladybug superhero costumes and accessories.
Accessory Innovations will release bags, backpacks, luggage and accessories for the girls who want to “Be Miraculous,” which will be complemented by jewelry and hair accessories from H.E.R. Accessories. Other key partners include Franco Manufacturing (bedding and bath), Komar (children’s pajamas, sleepwear and robes) and Handcraft Manufacturing (kids’ undergarments).
Miraculous is a co-production of ZAG, Method Animation, Disney Channel EMEA, Toei Animation, SamG Animation, SK Broadband, PGS Entertainment and AB International Distribution. It follows the adventures of charismatic young Marinette, who magically transforms into the vivacious superhero Ladybug to save the day using super powers, mysterious charms and the unique power of creation with the help of her magical pet Tikki. Little does this 13 year old know, her crush Adrien is also her superhero sidekick, Cat Noir!
