Russian animation Riki-Group’s series ‘Kikoriki 3D: New Adventures’ and Pincode will soon be available in Arabic on SVOD platform Noorplay!
The streaming service has acquired non-exclusive SVOD rights for Season 3 of Kikoriki 3D: New Adventures and Season 1 of Pincode for five years. Both series, dubbed in Arabic, and aimed at children aged 4 to 12 will be available worldwide on the family-oriented platform, with the exception of Russia and other territories in the CIS region.
Kikoriki 3D: New Adventures (52 х 11) is an animated series created for a family audience, and several generations of kids have grown up watching it in Russia. Filled with kind humor, which children intuitively understand, it opens its subtle shades for adults.
Pincode is an edutainment spin-off of the popular Kikoriki series, engaging kids to explore the world of innovations, technology and discoveries.
Both series have previously been broadcast in Arabic on various TV channels and platforms in the MENA region.
“We are excited to enter into the partnership with such a family-oriented platform as Noorplay, which shares our core values. Both Kikoriki and Pincode were previously on air in the MENA region on TV, so we are now excited to move to the digital outreach for kids who speak Arabic all over the world,” comments Valeria Korotina, Head of International Business Development and Sales at Riki Group.
‘‘When building a kids’ content proposition from scratch, you look for premium and recognizable IP that children are familiar with, and that their parents are comfortable with. Kikoriki and Pincode excel in this category, and we’re thrilled to provide these beloved series to our users in the near future,’’ said İnanç Vardar, Chief Content and Business Officer of Noorplay.
