Xentrix Adapting ‘Fluffy Polar Bears’ NFT to Animated Series

The fun and furry world of popular NFT project Fluffy Polar Bears is the latest non-fungible to make the leap to animation, thanks to a new partnership with Xentrix Studios Australia. The property brings to life a “cold, funky and definitely interesting” planet where polar bears are the only species to survive a new ice age, created by Turkish cartoonist Selçuk Erdem.

“We imagined an alternative world where only Fluffy Polar Bears lived. From caveman to an astronaut Fluffy — imagined a world full of humor and sarcasm. Because this is where our roots come from our amazing creator Selçuk Erdem. It turned out that we’re not the only ones who see our Fluffy Polar Bears that way,” said FPB’s Bertug Oymak.

“I reached out to Fluffy Polar Bears purely because I loved the old fashioned look and feel,” said Ken Cantrill, Head of Creative at Xentrix Studios Australia. “It reminded me of the cartoons I watched when growing up. The look had a cheekiness to it. When I did my research I established it was created by a well respected European cartoonist, Selçuk Erdem. Since we all commenced as cartoonists this project certainly resonated with me deeply.”

The as-yet untitled series will be set in the “Iceverse,” with cutely cartoony visuals designed to appeal to youths 10- to 15-years old as well as subtly clever, sarcastic humor that will amuse adults. The 2D animation will leave Erdem’s original drawing intact, which fans will see when a 60-second trailer drops in August.

In the partnership announcement, FPB reports it is already scheduling meetings with top studios awaiting the trailer. The property has also signed on with brand management & licensing agency WP Brands for a global L&M rollout tied to the show.

Xentrix is the fastest growing animation studio in Australasia, with studios in India, the Philippines, Singapore, Dubai and Australia, as well as an L.A.-based sales and client management team. They have worked with leading entertainment brands including Marvel, DC, Warner Bros. and Disney on projects for the Badman, Spider-Man, Transformers, Looney Tunes, LEGO and Noddy brands. Recent projects include Ridley Jones (Netflix) and Big Nate (Nickelodeon/Paramount+). Xentrisx is currently working on over 20 new projects. |
