Netflix and DreamWorks Animation have expanded their current multi-year deal, making Netflix the global home, outside of China, to a number of the studio's new original series. The deal also covers streaming rights to the DreamWorks Animation feature film library.
In addition, the deal extends the rights of current original kids' series from the studio throughout operating Netflix markets as well as expanding to include second window rights for the series everywhere around the world, except China. Series include "The Adventures of Puss in Boots," "Dinotrux," "Dragons: Race to the Edge" and more.
Starting in 2016, Netflix will also launch several new series from DWA, including a reimagining of "Voltron," and the new series, "Trollhunters," from Guillermo del Toro, which will feature a new, fantastical world centered on two best friends who make a startling discovery beneath their hometown.
"This agreement adds to the incredible foundation we've built together with Netflix over a number of years across both film and television," says Ann Daly, president, DreamWorks Animation. "We are proud to work closely with Netflix to continue delivering high-quality programming to audiences around the world."
Over the term of the new agreement, a number of new original series will be developed and produced by DreamWorks Animation for Netflix, based not only on recent and upcoming feature films from the studio, but also on other classic IP.
"DreamWorks Animation is synonymous with great storytelling that families around the world enjoy," says Cindy Holland, vice president of original series, Netflix. "It's with great pleasure that we expand on an already successful relationship with DreamWorks Animation to bring more premium kids and family television to Netflix members globally."
