DQE, Wild Canary partner to produce Miles from Tomorrowland

MUMBAI: The animation house is making waves across the world and a latest deal strengthens it more. DQ Entertainment (DQE) has bagged a deal to produce Disney Junior Miles from Tomorrowland along with USA’s Wild Canary Animation. It will be a 24 episode CGI HD animated space adventure series that will be released in 2015.

Disney Jr and Wild Canary have already started working on the series earlier this year. DQE will be handling the post-production of the series. Emmy nominated Sascha Paldino (Henry Hugglemonster, Ni Hao, Kai-lan) is the executive producer of the series, while Emmy nominated Paul Demeyer (Duckman, Rugrats in Paris) will be directing it.

Set in the Disney parks area, the show’s curriculum is based around educating children about science, technology and space travel. Each episode will have two stories of 11 minutes each that will take kids on a ride to a new world to drive their interest in the universe, mathematics, language skills and the importance of family bonding.

DQE group founder and CEO Tapaas Chakravarti said, “We are thrilled to embark on production of this exciting new Disney series with Wild Canary, USA. We expect that the collaborative skills of both Wild Canary’s and DQ Entertainment’s high quality CGI animation resources will result in a world-class series that will attract young audiences across the Globe.”

According to industry sources the deal should bring in an incremental business of about $5-7 million for the company.

Wild Canary Animation president and co-founder Richard Marlis said “When my partner Carmen Italia and I opened Wild Canary over 6 years ago, we envisioned becoming a global company. We could not have a better partner than DQ Entertainment to move forward with this new venture. DQ Entertainment’s structure and parallel CGI pipeline to ours was an important ingredient in choosing an overseas animation partner. Tapaas and his staff embraced Miles and delivered a great pilot. We look forward to a long standing relationship with them, both for this series and future projects.”

The series will air on Disney Junior channels across the world.
