India’s Green Gold Animation Pvt. Ltd. and ADK Emotions Inc. of Japan have formalized a partnership to co-produce and distribute the new 3D animated title, Nebula and the Big Blue Couch. In this adventure-edutainment series for preschool audiences, a group of adorable toddlers and their compulsively texting babysitter go on extraordinary adventures in science to discover the secrets of nature, space, history, the human body and much more. The two companies plan to bring the show bible and brand plan to market in 2020.
“We are so excited to introduce kids and their families to this show where the bond of friendship takes a curious group of youngsters on a journey to answer some of the most perplexing — and yet, everyday — questions about the world around them,” said Rajiv Chilaka, Founder & CEO of Green Gold Animation. “And we couldn’t have a better partner than ADK Emotions – their innovate approach and deep understanding of children’s toys will help inspire kids across the globe to ask similar questions and fall in love with science as they search for answers.”
“We are so thrilled and delighted to start our partnership with Green Gold Animation, a wonderful studio committed to producing world-class animation with purpose and depth,” said Takahiro Noda, Representative Director of ADK Emotions. “With two decades of experience in the industry, we know that there is so much knowledge that they have to offer. This will be an incredibly fruitful endeavor for both parties and we cannot wait to see what the future holds.”
