Let’s start with its digital ventures: there’s a new web series that will feature the “chibi” style versions of the series’ characters later this year, and a “Miraculous” global game from Tab Tale, which debuted last month. In apparel, there’s Guess Kids for the Guess x Be Miraculous Ladybug Fashion kids’ capsule line, featuring designs pulled directly from or influenced by the series. The line, described by Mayer as “cool and classy,” is for girls and boys, ages 6 to 12, and in stores now.

This fall, Zag will have several ways to reach its “Miraculous” global audience. A worldwide promotion is planned with Burger King, while a live musical based on the series is in development for Europe and Latin America.
