ANKAMA ANIMATIONS EXPANDS DIGITAL PRESENCE
Raft of VOD and SVOD deals for the French Studio
February 2016 – Following the launching of Ankama Animations’s first animated feature film in theatres in France (Dofus - Book 1 : Julith) , the studio has signed a raft of VOD and SVOD deals with several platforms in France for its in-house series.
The French audience will now have the opportunity to watch Dofus, Kerub’s Bazaar on TF1 VOD as well as on OCS Go and Canal Play.
The 52x13’ series targets the 6-10 years-old age range and combines action and adventure with comedy.
Commissioned by France Televisions, Dofus, Kerub’s Bazaar has also been broadcasted on France 3. The main characters of this show are also the heroes of Dofus - Book 1 : Julith, currently available in French movie theaters. Main digital partners for Dofus, Kerub’s Bazaar also include GooglePlay and iTunes.
Wakfu, the biggest hit from Ankama Animations – which is already available on Netflix, GooglePlay, and iTunes – is also part of the deal with OCS Go and CanalPlay. Season 1 and Season 2 of Wakfu will be available on OCS Go, the platform from French telecom operator Orange, while CanalPlay will display the two seasons, the two TV specials (“Ogrest” and “Noximilien”), and the three OVAs. Aiming at the 6–12 years-old, Wakfu (52x26’) is an adventure driven series set in the same universe as Dofus, as part of the whole transmedia universe created by Ankama, and which encompasses videogames, boardgames, mangas, novels, and audiovisual productions.
