“Dream Defenders,” a CG animated series from Tiny Island Productions, will premiere this summer on Hulu.
Singapore – Tiny Island Productions has announced that Dream Defenders will be available on Hulu this summer.
Dream Defenders tells the incredible story of Zane and Zoey serving as the last line of defense between the real world and the Dreamworlds. Controlled by evil Icela, the nightmare monsters come to life and are threatening to break through to the real world! The 26 episode series is available on the free, ad-supported Hulu and Hulu Plus subscription service.
The series follows the adventure of Zane and Zoey, 14-year-old twins who can travel into the Dreamworlds – the realm where humans dream.
Supercomputer ZEUS provides the means, the twins provide the courage. Only new school friends Tucker and Patel share Zoey and Zane’s secret adventures. Evil forces in the Dreamworlds, Icela, Nodd & Druul, unleash Momoks, nightmare monsters to haunt our dreams and turn us into Dreamwalker zombies. Zane and Zoey must defeat the monsters in the Dreamworlds and, with Tucker and Patel’s help, keep the chaos in the real world under control.
The series is based on original concepts developed by Tiny Island Productions, Singapore’s leading Stereoscopic 3D CG animation production company. It focuses on producing “Future Proof” content across multiple new platforms. The Los Angeles-based writing team was supervised by industry veterans Eric and Julia Lewald, who have been showrunners together or individually on 14 series, including X-Men: The Animated Series and Young Hercules. The series made its first debut in the United States on 3net, the joint venture 24/7 3D Network from Sony, Discovery and IMAX, the world’s first dedicated kids 3D programming block in September 2011.
David Kwok, CEO, Tiny Island Productions, commented: “We recognised the value of reaching out to new digital audiences across multiple platforms and we are very fortunate to have Hulu as our partner.”
Available this summer to U.S. audiences on Hulu and Hulu Plus, viewers get the opportunity to participate in the “Momok (Nightmare Monsters) Design Competition” where winners will bring home 3d glasses free tablets. They will be the first few in the world to experience Dream Defenders 'flying out' from these 3D tablets without having to put on any 3D glasses.
Viewers will also get to participate in a lucky draw with the top prize of return air tickets and a hotel stay on sunny and beautiful Singapore where they can get the chance to visit the animation studio behind the production as well as visit the Dream Defenders Exhibition. Details will be announced soon on the Dream Defenders Facebook page.
