Pure Imagination and POW! Entertainment Creating ‘The Amazing Stan’ Show To Honor Stan Lee.
According to Deadline, “Pure Imagination Studios and POW! Entertainment have partnered on the project which envisions the world as it would be seen through the eyes of Lee as a modern-day youngster. The character is a “constant dreamer” and he and his friends “learn to take risks, explore new ideas, and never ever give up.”
Scott Peterson (Phineas and Ferb) is writing and developing the show and has partnered with Pure Imagination’s Chief Content Officer, John P. Roberts, and Sanjee Gupta to bring their idea to life.
“It is an honor to help carry on the creative legacy of one of the greatest storytellers that pop culture has ever known by introducing an original animated adventure series featuring a new cast of characters for kids and adults to connect with,” Roberts said. “Stan Lee turned his childhood daydreams into a universe that features superheroes that have resonated with generations of all ages and cultures. Now his millions of fans can look forward to seeing him appear as an animated version of his younger self for the very first time.”
Executive producers for the series include John P. Roberts (Pure Imagination’s Chief Content Officer), Joshua Wexler (CEO of PI Studios), Gill Champion (President, Director and CEO of Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment), and Bob Sabouni (Chief Marketing Officer of POW! Entertainment).
“Stan had the uncanny ability to see the world with a childlike imagination,” Champion said. “For example, an office building becomes a castle, while the streets below form a moat protecting the inhabitants inside. It takes a very special creative team to capture the story of a young Stan and the birth of his unique creations – we’re thrilled to work with Pure Imagination Studios and its team of creators and collaborators to tell this remarkable story and share this amazing ride with his legion of fans.”
Before Lee’s passing, Roberts and Gupta shared their vision with Stan. Stan gave them his blessing and POW! Entertainment has moved forward with this passion project to honor the now late Stan Lee and his decades worth of work and inspiration. A 2-minute preview for The Amazing Stan will be presented during the “A Celebration of Stan Lee’s Life and Legacy” panel at San Diego Comic Con this weekend.
