DQE & Method Animation to co-produce CGI TV series ?5 & It?

MUMBAI: DQ Entertainment and Method Animation have joined hands to co-produce the CGI TV series 5 & It, which is a modern adaption of Edith Nesbit?s popular book Five Children & It.

The project is being co-produced with Disney Channel Germany and supported by Noga, Israel. Disney Channel France has pre-acquired the show.

The 52 episode CGI TV series has received wide ranging interest from broadcasters and licensing agents globally, and will be available for broadcast on channels across the world by mid-2017.

The series follows the adventures and escapades of five children after they befriend a sand fairy at their uncle?s beachfront mansion. The sand fairy, Psammead, offers to grant them one wish each day.

The Walt Disney Company GSA Disney Channels executive programming director & deputy general manager Rolf Gerhardt said, "We are very pleased to co-produce the new animated series 5 & It together with DQE and to deliver creative input. The new series will fit perfectly in the Disney Channel lineup for a young audience and is in line with Disney?s rich heritage of creative storytelling, with a new look, and great animation. Our main-character, Psammead, steals the show as a sand fairy with an attitude, and we are certain that audiences will Jove him.?

Method Animation CEO Aton Soumache added, "We are very proud to enter this new adventure with our historical partner DQ, After Robin Hood and Peter Pan, Method Animation is enchanted to revisit another great classic. 5 & It will definitely be thanks to the work of our two companies. A new evergreen property that all kids can wish for.?

DQE CEO Tapaas Chakravati said, "This 52 episode CGI series will be a fun roller coaster of adventures as the children learn to deal with the consequences of their often irrational wishes. It will have the right mix of sly humour, crazy adventures and fast paced action to entertain young audiences. We are confident that our co-production partners Method Animation and Disney Channel Germany, as well as Disney Channel France will work together to create a beautiful TV series that will entertain our young audiences globally.?
