RYAN’S WORLD NINJA ADVENTURES TO DEBUT
Pocket.watch and Sunlight Entertainment, the Kaji family owned production studio, are expanding the Ryan’s World brand with Ryan’s World Ninja Adventures through new live action and animated content and themed programs including Walmart-exclusive toys that incorporate a code for personalized messages from Ninja Ryan voiced by Ryan Kaji through Cameo, powered by AI voice and animation. Ninja Adventures was inspired by Ryan’s family heritage, and their trip to Japan where they trained alongside real-life ninjas learning the principles of bravery, curiosity, and honor.
Ryan’s World Ninja Adventures are taking over every screen, with episodes and content specials debuting across the Ryan’s World YouTube Channel, The Roku Channel, and Ryan and Friends Plus, the largest independent kids and family SVOD service. In the action-packed Ryan’s World Ninja Adventures Special premiering on The Roku Channel and Ryan and Friends Plus today, families can join Ryan on his journey to becoming a Ninja Master, while enjoying epic battles and musical singalongs. Later this month, a new live action special shot with real Ninjas in Japan will have its world premiere in a live stream on the Ryan’s World YouTube Channel, where fans can enjoy Ryan’s family’s live reactions. Ryan’s World is the favorite YouTuber for kids ages 3-9, with 56 Million subscribers and over 76 Billion lifetime views across his channels.
“We are thrilled to extend the Ryan’s World franchise with the exciting launch of Ryan’s World Ninja Adventures toys with Walmart, captivating new episodes, and innovative digital products with Cameo” said Amanda Klecker, SVP Marketing & Franchise at pocket.watch, “we’re taking Ryan’s journey to the next level, immersing our audience in a world of ninja-inspired fun and adventure. This kicks off an epic brand experience that will delight the whole family!”
In time for today’s premiere of the Ryan’s World Ninja Adventures special, Walmart has exclusively launched Ryan’s World Ninja Adventures toys in stores and online. Stealthy surprises await Ryan’s World fans in the Ninja Adventures Giant Mystery Egg ($39.99), equipped with mystery figures, a mystery vehicle, putty, a Ninja Star spinner and stickers. Just as mighty as its giant cousin, the Ninja Adventures Mini Mystery Egg ($9.99) comes in six assortments and includes one mystery figure, a micro figure, mystery sand and stickers.
For the first time ever, fans can get Cameos at Walmart stores when they purchase the new Ryan’s World Giant Ninja Egg. The new Ninja Ryan character joins other pocket.watch characters on Cameo Kids such as Red Titan and Combo Panda from Ryan’s World, who were the first on the platform to be powered by Cameo’s proprietary AI animation technology.
“Creating content for Ryan’s World Ninja Adventures has been such a fun way for my kids to build a deeper connection to my childhood in Japan,” said Shion Kaji, Ryan’s father and CEO of Sunlight Entertainment, “and with the launch of Ninja Ryan on Cameo Kids, now fans will also have the opportunity for personal connections through the customized animated video messages.”
