franchise, which is published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, first launched in 2010 and chronicles the adventures of Geraldine, a little girl who knows deep down that she is a fairy princess despite all evidence to the contrary.

“The books are all about celebrating individuality. We hope to encourage kids to rejoice in their own unique passions and talents–even if they’re different from that of their family or friends, and Nelvana is the perfect partner to bring our beloved

to a wider audience,” says Andrews.

The animated TV series is slated to launch on-air in 2016, and will be jointly developed with Andrews and Walton Hamilton and produced at Nelvana Studio in Toronto,

Canada. 

“We love Geraldine’s precocious personality and can’t wait to get to know her even better and bring her adventures to life,” says Irene Weibel, vice president and head, Nelvana Studio. “Nelvana takes special pride in bringing beloved books to the screen, and it’s a true honor to collaborate with Julie and Emma to extend the world of

The Very Fairy Princess

to an animated series.”
