A second project from the animation studio, developed in partnership with Mercury Filmworks, is the 2D preschool series “Chamelia,” based on the book series from Ethan Long.

“Chamelia” stars 6-year-old chameleon Chamelia who, contrary to the nature of chameleons, would rather stand out than blend in.
