A new “Chip’n’ Dale” reboot and much more is coming on Disney+. Today, at this year’s Annecy International Animation Festival, Disney announced more details about several animation projects that are in the works!
The new reboot featuring the world-famous pair of chipmunks will be on Disney Plus and is being developed by Disney’s London-based team. It is being co-produced with Marc du Pontavice’s Xilam. Xilam is a Paris-based company responsible for family hits, including “Mr. Magoo”. There will be 39 seven-minute episodes with traditional animation as the famous pair navigate life in the big city.
In addition to the announcement about the classic animated series being revamped, more information was revealed about several other projects.
One new and much-anticipated series that is coming is the “Monsters at Work” series. Coming to Disney Plus in 2020, this series picks up 6 months after the original movie ended, with a whole new class of monsters looking to create some laughs! Billy Crystal and John Goodman will reprise their original roles.
That’s not all that is new for Disney. It was also announced that the BBC Studios “Bluey” series is the latest Disney acquisition. The series is geared toward a preschool-age audience and features a Blue Heeler dog and her friends. “Ghose Force” tells the story of a group of junior high friends turned secret superhero team! This series is geared toward kids ages six and up.
Two more upcoming animated series include “Amphibia” – a show starring 13-year-old Anne who is transplanted to a new land filled with frogs and becomes a local hero, and “The Owl House”, a fantasy series about a young girl and a land filled with mysterious magic.
A musical clip from “101 Dalmation Street” was also shared today. This clip showed the beloved spotted family on a road trip in a London double-decker bus! The series was launched in Europe in March 2019 and has reportedly been viewed by 34 million people, including 12 million children.
As Helene Etzi, country manager at the Walt Disney France pointed out “Animation continues to be one of the cornerstones of Disney magic and story-telling”. It is clear that now is a great time to be working in animation! What do you think of all the new animated series that are coming? What are you most excited to see?
