STX Grabs Domestic Rights for Playmobil: The Movie
STXfilms and On Animation Studios have partnered to bring Playmobil: The Movie to U.S. audiences.
The film follows the adventures of Marla as she traverses the Playmobil universe to find her lost younger brother, Charlie. The 2019 theatrical release will feature the voices of Daniel Radcliffe, Meghan Trainor, Kenan Thompson, Adam Lambert, Jim Gaffigan, Anya Taylor Joy and Gabriel Bateman.
“Playmobil: The Movie is an action-packed animated adventure led by a fantastic cast and the inimitable Lino DiSalvo,” says Adam Fogelson, chairman, STXfilms. “We’re thrilled to partner with On Animation Studios on this fun and original project, and look forward bringing a fresh take on the iconic Playmobil toy to the big screen for audiences across the U.S.”
The Playmobil line has produced 2.9 billion figurines in more than 100 countries worldwide. Along with its original properties, the toymaker also recently partnered with Studio 100 to create a line of playsets for the children’s CGI series Heidi.
