Disney Channel and Disney Jr. will air the second season of Media I.M.’s animated preschool series Sunny Bunnies. The Belarus-produced series currently airs in more than 160 territories worldwide.
In addition, Sky Kids has also picked up the rights to season two (26 x 3.5 mins) for its app service in the U.K. and Ireland. In Scandinavia, MTG-owned Nordic streaming service Viaplay has acquired seasons one and two which launched earlier this month in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland.
The rights for both seasons have also been picked up by MBC in the Middle East and North Africa region which will launch Sunny Bunnies on its children’s edutainment channel MBC3 in 2019. Media I.M. has also extended the rights deal with Brazilian kid’s app (Play Kids) for the first season of the show to Latin America, North America and Europe where previously the deal covered only Brazil.
“Sunny Bunnies has had an amazing journey since 2016 when we have first launched it internationally,” says Media I.M. co-founder Maria Ufland. “Disney’s belief and support for the series has been unwavering and is a huge endorsement to the brand. We are extremely excited that the show will soon be available to even broader kid’s audiences in the Middle East, Brazil and Estonia, which is a huge credit to the international appeal of this show and proves that it is developing to become a truly global brand.”
The Sunny Bunnies are five beaming balls that can appear anywhere there is a source of light, from sunshine to moonlight. In each episode, the cheeky creatures bring their fun and games to a different location embarking on mischievous adventures. For more info, visit www.mediaiminc.com.
