Super Wings! (52 x 11 minute), a unique global US/South Korea/China co-production produced by FunnyFlux Entertainment in South Korea, QianQi Animation in China and Little Airplane Productions in the US is jetting into Cannes for Mipcom Jr this October.
Aimed at 3-6 year olds, the action-packed, animated pre-school series follows the adventures of an adorable jet plane called Jett who travels the world delivering unique packages to children. In each fast-moving episode, Jett encounters a new problem, which he and his high-flying friends – the Super Wings – must work together to solve. But the Super Wings are no ordinary aircraft, they have the ability to transform into extraordinary robot heroes who can run, lift, dig and even dive deep into the sea!
Created by Gil Hoon Jung at FunnyFlux Entertainment (Tickety Toc), Super Wings! will take young viewers on a high-flying, fast-moving journey of cultural discovery as Jett and his friends swoop and dive all around the world. The writing, casting and voice direction of the series will be overseen by the Emmy award-winner Josh Selig (The Wonder Pets, Small Potatoes) at Little Airplane Productions, and QianQi Animation, one of the leading animation studios in China, will create the animation. The Alpha Group (Auldey toy brand) has already signed up as the global master toy licensee.
“Super Wings! represents a unique and historic partnership between China, Korea and the United States. We believe this model of co-operation and teamwork will lead to many new series that include outstanding writing, beautiful design and state-of-the-art 3D animation," says FunnyFlux’s Director and CEO Gil Hoon Jung.
