On the heels of the recent announcement of “Melody,” the animated musical starring Katy Perry from Cross Creek Pictures and ZAG, the two companies have formalized an agreement to develop and produce a slate of 10 animated, live-action and hybrid format film projects, the majority of which will be musicals.  

In addition to “Melody,” ZAG and Cross Creek previously collaborated on ZAG’s upcoming animated musical, “Miraculous Ladybug and Cat Noir: The Movie.” Cross Creek served as a co-producer on the feature.  

The upcoming 10 movies for global family viewing are all based on ZAG’s intellectual property, created by Jeremy Zag, and will fall under the company’s existing ZAG HEROEZ umbrella, as well as new labels, ZAG PASSION and ZAG ADVENTURES. Jeremy Zag will direct a minimum of five of the projects.  

The new working titles include “Fairy Force,” an animated musical; “Ghostforce,” a live-action movie; “Ladylion,” an animated musical; “Choco,” a hybrid live-action musical and five yet-to-be-announced titles.  

“Working together with Cross Creek on our upcoming ‘Miraculous’ feature release, and ‘Melody,’ has been such an inspiring journey, and created an opportunity to work on many more projects together,” says Jeremy Zag, founder and chief executive officer, ZAG. “I have been developing these new film projects for a number of years and am so excited that we have the ideal partner in Cross Creek to bring them to fruition.”  

“It has been an immense pleasure working alongside Jeremy on ‘Miraculous’ and ‘Melody’ in an effort to bring new content to platforms for viewers around the world,” says Tyler Thompson, producer, Cross Creek Pictures. “Furthering our partnership into a long-standing commitment to new IP will bring fresh perspectives and storytelling for years to come.”
