Disney Junior Latin America Gets Spicy with Xilam’s ‘Paprika’

Award-winning French animation company’s 2D-animated preschool comedy series to air on Disney Junior across Latin America, including Brazil.  

Award-winning French animation production company Xilam has licensed its animated preschool series Paprika (75 seven-minute episodes plus 11 two-minute episodes) to Disney Junior Latin America. The series will air on Disney Junior across Latin America including Brazil.

The preschool comedy series -- produced by Xilam Animation and commissioned by France Télévisions and Disney Junior EMEA -- follows the energetic and lovable Paprika twins, Olivia and Stan, the latter of whom is in a wheelchair. No hurdle is too high for the loveable twins as they turn everyday life into wonderful, colorful adventures!

“I am confident that Disney Junior’s viewers across Latin America will be captivated by this sweet and fantastic preschool series,” said Leyla Formoso, VP of Media Distribution Latin America & Iberia at Xilam. “We’re thrilled to further strengthen our relationship with Disney and we know that they’ll be the perfect home for Paprika.”

Paprika has also been licensed to additional broadcasters including France 5, which is set to air the brand-new series this fall. Discovery Italy’s K2 and Frisbee channels will also air the series in the first quarter of 2018.
