Spotlight Licensing has been appointed by Gaumont to launch and manage the global merchandise licensing program for “Samurai Rabbit: The Usagi Chronicles.” 

“We are incredibly proud of ‘Samurai Rabbit,’” says Terry Kalagian, executive vice president of creative content, Gaumont U.S. “It’s a fun, funny, action packed, gorgeous, animated kids series that younger viewers will love. Creator Stan Sakai was involved every step of the way so we hope his comic fans will love it as well.” 

Spotlight has simultaneously been tapped to handle global merchandise licensing for Sakai’s creator-owned Usagi Yojimbo property. 

“We are thrilled to be working with Gaumont and Stan Sakai to find the right licensing partners in the U.S. and around the world for each property, Samurai Rabbit: The Usagi Chronicles and Usagi Yojimbo, either separately or together if appropriate,” says, Carole Postal, Spotlight Licensing. 

Spotlight is actively seeking licensing partners across a broad range of product categories including not only toys and games but also clothing, costumes, accessories, figurines, collectibles, and other items. As global agent, Spotlight will also be looking for evaluating potential licensing partners and sub-agents around the world.
