Disney Interactive Media Group has partnered with Outfit7 to develop a web series featuring Talking Friends. The animated series is the first toward expanding the franchise beyond mobile to a broader online entertainment platform.
The series will run on Disney.com, Disney’s new network on YouTube and will be accessible through the Talking Friends mobile apps.
