SAMG Animation is currently in the pre-production stage of its imaginative new preschool series titled Super Rex. The series is set on a mysterious island where dinosaurs never went extinct. But unlike the dinos in Jurassic Park, these reptiles have evolved and become much smarter, and thanks to the efforts of an eccentric and brilliant scientist, they have learned how to use technologies to better their lives! The 52 x 11 series will be released in Korea and China in the third or fourth quarter of 2021 and early 2022 for other regions. According to the producers, “In terms of concept, everyone knows that kids just love dinosaurs. Our show will also have heroic emergency rescue action elements like Paw Patrol as well as action/comedy scenes and cool looking vehicle transformations like MiniForce X. It will present many different kinds of natural environments and situations and it will encourage young audiences to improve their imagination.”

SAMG is well-known for its terrific CG animation production values and series such as Miraculous, MiniForce X and MonKart. Founded in 2000, SAMG started as a small CGI animation studio, but it has evolved into becoming one of the region’s leading contents/brand companies, with many renowned original IPs and more than 150 employees.
