The two companies are also currently in production on a US$60M budget animated Miraculous feature, to be released globally, and scheduled to premiere in fall 2021 or early 2022.
The two animated TV movies, Miraculous World – New York – United HeroeZ and Miraculous World – Shanghai – Lady Dragon, will be available on Disney Channel and Disney+ who have acquired global rights except for Brazil and China; France’s TF1 for the second window; Brazil’s Gloob (Grupo Globo), Canada’s Family Channel & Télé–Québec and UK’s POP have acquired respective territory rights. Created by ZAG and produced by ZAG and ON kids & family (Mediawan Group), the 3D-CGI-animated TV movies are directed by Thomas Astruc.
“With our two new movies, we’re expanding the world of Miraculous like never before as Ladybug and Cat Noir explore New York and Shanghai, and meet new superheroes as they take on treacherous villains far away from their home city of Paris,” commented Jeremy Zag, founder and CEO of ZAG. “We thank all of our fans for their continued love for Ladybug and Cat Noir, and our tremendous partners, and we can’t wait to share this whole world of new amazing hero characters with everyone.”
