Disney Plus and the Disney Channel have acquired the rights to a pair of animated TV movies based on the “Miraculous” franchise.

“Miraculous World: New York – United HeroeZ” and Miraculus World: Shanghai – Lady Dragon” will air on Disney Plus and the Disney Channel as part of a global rollout that excludes China and Brazil. The 3D-CGI-animated films will be directed by Thomas Astruc, who is known for directing the “Miraculous” television series that currently airs in more than 120 territories.

The film projects have also been snapped up by France’s TF1, Brazil’s Gloob, Canada’s Télé-Québec and U.K.’s POP for regional, second window rights.

“With our two new movies, we’re expanding the world of ‘Miraculous’ like never before as Ladybug and Cat Noir explore New York and Shanghai and meet new superheroes as they take on treacherous villains far away from their home city of Paris,” says Jeremy Zag, founder and chief executive officer, ZAG.

Along with the Disney fare, “Miraculous” is currently being adapted into an animated feature film expected to deliver in late 2021 or early 2022. The series has quickly become a beloved brand globally. Last month, the brand won the Bologna Licensing Trade Fair 2019 Best Pre-School Licensing Project Award.
