Indian animation firm Toonz Media Group has struck a deal with character-based preschool entertainment property Zoonicorn to co-develop and coproduce an animated series based on the brand.

The 52×7’ 3D animated series will follow the Zoonicorns, a magical mix of zebra and unicorn that inhabit the dreams of young animals, as they guide dreamers through adventures, tackling obstacles and important life lessons on the way.

Toonz will handle worldwide distribution of the series.

Jaya Kumar, CEO of Toonz Media Group, said: “We are delighted to be partnering on the wonderful Zoonicorn property to develop, coproduce and distribute the CGI TV series. I have no doubt that it will both entertain and empower kids during their all-important social-emotional skills learning stages, helping them on their journey through life.”

The growing line of Zoonicorn products has continued to expand since the launch of the brand in 2015. The brand includes popular YouTube music videos, picture books, three interactive story apps and four games, and in 2018 launched an interactive plush toy with toy company Jay@Play.
