Animaccord will represent a new animated property, “Super Dinosaur,” after inking a deal with Spin Master and multiplatform content company Skybound Entertainment. Beginning this year, Animaccord will manage media and licensing representation for the children’s animated series in select regions.
“It is great to extend our partnership with Spin Master with the deal on such an exciting and high-quality animated brand as ‘Super Dinosaur,’” says Vladimir Gorbulya, chief executive officer, Animaccord. “We have been longing to have a boys’ property in our portfolio and now thrilled to represent it.”
Animaccord will manage the development of consumer products and promotional campaigns under the “Super Dinosaur” brand in Russia and CIS, Eastern Europe, Baltic countries, MENA, Turkey, Italy and France. Under the deal, Animaccord has also acquired media rights to distribute 26 episodes of the series in the same territories.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Animaccord on ‘Super Dinosaur’ and building the brand’s European presence after its launch in North and South America,” says Thom Chapman, senior director, sales and distribution, Spin Master.
