Toonz and Partners Re-Imagine Arabian Nights

Kindle Entertainment in the U.K., Mediamax in Canada and Toonz Entertainment in India have joined forces to produce a contemporary re-working of the classic Arabian Nights story, "Jamillah & Aladdin." 

The live-action series, which has been co-commissioned by CBeebies and CBBC, will feature Jamillah, a modern London girl who stumbles upon a curious lamp in her attic, and is transported back to ancient Baghdad by the lamp’s resident comical genie. There she meets Aladdin, who shows her a whole new world of adventure, excitement and magic.

“I am certain that children of all ages will be drawn to our two colorful protagonists," says Cheryl Taylor, controller, CBBC. "Jamillah is a modern girl who embraces each new adventure with intelligence and determination, and Aladdin imbues each tale with customary mischief and charm."

Imira Entertainment, a subsidiary of Toonz Entertainment, will distribute the series worldwide (except in the U.K., Ireland and Australia).
