After Disney Channel picked up the first three series, the continued partnership will bring all five series to Disney+ platforms across the globe (excluding Brazil, Australia, Canada, Korea and China).
“Disney has been a key partner in bringing Miraculous Ladybug to audiences everywhere, and we are grateful for their creative support and trust for this next chapter. We are excited to be extending our relationship to Disney+ and to be part of their compelling new platform,” says Jeremy Zag, founder, chief executive officer, ZAG. “We are naturally delighted by the impressive ratings for the first of the TV Event premieres and grateful for the support of our Miraculous fans who tuned in.”
“We have a particular history with Disney: they are the first partners of ‘Miraculous,’ the most passionate and committed,” says Aton Soumache, co-founder, chief executive officer, ON kids & family. “Today, our success around the franchise allows us to strengthen our partnership, notably through Disney+, expand the Miraculous World thanks to the TV Events and many new superheroes who will come and surprise us; and to establish it proudly over time.”
Recently, Disney Channel and Disney+ debuted the first of two animated events, “Miraculous World: New York, United HeroeZ,” which ranked No. 1 across all U.S. cable TV for girls aged 6-11; ranking equally as high in Germany. The second movie, “Miraculous World: Shanghai – The Legend of Lady Dragon,” will debut in 2021.
With a fan base of young adults (aged 15-25), the Miraculous brand has garnered more than 22 billion views on YouTube and sold more than 150 million products over the last three years.
