Outfit7 and its North American global licensing partner, Epic Story Media, have announced new deals for the award-winning family entertainment brand, Talking Tom & Friends. Fans can look forward to a new branded Talking Tom interactive product, as well as a range of consumer products at retailers across the U.S. Epic and Outfit7 are also developing a new 3D CGI animated series for global distribution.

The “Talking Tom Heroes: Suddenly Super” series is a new iteration of Outfit7’s successful Talking Tom Heroes brand, which already has a massive and dedicated global fanbase. The series will see the popular characters transform into superheroes who must unlock their superpower potential to save the day – all while keeping their day jobs.

“’Talking Tom Heroes: Suddenly Super’ is an exciting new development for Outfit7’s groundbreaking entertainment brand, which already has 79 billion global views of its video content,” says Ken Faier, president and founder, Epic Story Media. “We’re thrilled to be able to work with Outfit7 and take a brand with such incredible global reach to new heights.” 

The series is just one of three deals set to deliver more Talking Tom & Friends to its fans worldwide. Epic Story Media and Outfit7 have partnered with Lukis Global Corp, a multi-industry conglomerate and private label manufacturer, to launch a range of new Talking Tom & Friends products at U.S. retailers in the food, apparel, jewelry and health & beauty categories. This fall will see the launch of the GameBud Talking Tom – a first-of-its-kind, game-connected, interactive product. The Talking Tom GameBud, which will be released for presale in Q4 this year, is the first product to launch from direct-to-fan premium play company, HUGE! Play.

“We’re incredibly excited to introduce the world to GameBud, an innovative 3D interactive character that will live-connect to your favorite Talking Tom games, while also acting as your very own in-home streamer,” say Kevin Mowrer and Adrian Roche, co-chief executive officers, HUGE! “It’s an honor to partner with Outfit7 and Epic Story Media on this exciting new milestone and industry first.”
