Nuttery Ent. & Toonz Media Dream Up ‘Defenders of Imagination’ Pilot
Nuttery Entertainment and Toonz Media Group announce the start of the production for the pilot episode of their new animated series, Defenders of Imagination. Based on the long-running book series character Håkan Bråkan, created by best-selling Swedish authors Anders Jacobsson and Sören Olsson, the Defenders of Imagination is taking aim at Annecy to premiere its fight against boredom using a unique blend of fantasy, adventure, and comedy.
Defenders of Imagination revolves around a dynamic and imagination-powered brother-and-sister duo and the other in habitants of their small town of Glimmerdahl. Alongside their friends, these siblings stand against the adults, led by stoic and passionless Dr. Meyn, threatening to transform the world into a dull, productive and quiet dystopia.
“Defenders of Imagination is based on the iconic Håkan Bråkan, a character that has already won the hearts of many through the incredible works of Anders Jacobsson and Sören Olsson. The series aims to expand the universe they’ve created, and introduce new characters and adventures that will resonate with young viewers today,” said Magnus Jansson, CEO of Nuttery Entertainment. “We are thrilled to collaborate with Toonz Media Group on this production, and bring our shared creative vision for Defenders of imagination to life.”
P. Jayakumar, CEO of Toonz Media Group, commented, “We are excited to bring Defenders of Imagination to life, a series that not only entertains but also resonates with both kids and adults. The show’s emphasis on imagination and the contrast between the whimsical world of children and the mundane world of adults makes it a perfect family viewing experience. Our collaboration with Nuttery Entertainment for Defenders of Imagination represents a fusion of artistic talents and storytelling prowess. We are confident that this series will leave a lasting impression on our young audience and inspire them to cherish the power of imagination.”
The 11-minute, CGI-animated pilot aims to launch a full series aimed primarily at kids aged 6-9, but written to offer co-viewing opportunities for adults. The full Season 1 package will consist of 52 episodes.
