A brand new series is coming to The Disney Channel! This supernatural animated show called Sadie Sparks will feature the talented voices of Strictly Come Dancing’s Craig Revel-Horwood, comedian Rufus Hound, and young British actress Georgia Lock.
Hitting the screen in 2019, the show will follow the adventures of 14-year-old Sadie. After discovering that she has magical abilities, Sadie becomes a wizard in training! With the help of Gilbert, a grumpy old rabbit, she learns how to control her new magical skills while still facing everyday teenage life.
Two different animation styles are used with Sadie Sparks. The Magical Realm, where Gilbert the rabbit is from, appears in 2D while the human world uses CGI. The two bounce from world to world with the help of a magician’s hat portal.
The show was announced at the Children’s Media Conference in Sheffield, UK. It will be co-produced by Brown Bag Films and Cyber Group Studios located in Paris. The voices of the show include Lock, Revel-Horwood and Hound along with Sammy Moore (from The Evermoor Chronicles with Georgia Lock), Tyger Drew-Honey (Outnumbered), Dominique Moore (Footballer’s Wives), Morwenna Banks (Peppa Pig), Laura Aikman (Waterloo Road), Dan Renton Skinner (Yonderland) and Rufus Jones (The Casual Vacancy).
Sadie Sparks will feature 52 shows and was created by Bronagh O’Hanlon. He will also direct it. The writing team is led by Rebecca Hobbs.
“Animation is integral to the storytelling and heart of Disney Channel and we’re excited for our audiences to get to know this new band of mysterious and wonderful characters, as we follow our protagonist Sadie who learns to master her wizard powers with the help of her best friend, as well as juggling normal 14-year-old challenges, such as high school and forming unbreakable friendships. There is a lot of heart and warmth to Sadie Sparks, which we believe will really resonate with Disney Channel fans,” Orion Ross, VP Content, Animation, Digital & Acquisitions, Disney Channels EMEA said.
