Jonny Depp reprises his role as Johnny Puff in the new spin-off of the popular ‘Puffins’ 3D animated series; the 18-episode web series will be available on Apple TV app, Amazon Prime Video and Google Play starting April 9.
Iervolino & Lady Bacardi Entertainment (ILBE) have just shared an exclusive Puffins Impossible first look Official Trailer. The recently announced 3D animated series is a spin-off from its popular Puffins series. In the new show, Johnny Depp will reprise his role as Johnny Puff. Season 1 will be comprised of 18 episodes with Peter Nalli serving as series showrunner. The show will be available on the Apple TV app, Amazon Prime Video and Google Play starting April 9.
The new series follows the adventures of five Arctic birds – Johnny Puff, Didi, Pie, Tic and Tac. Every day is just regular fun for the puffins - until they touch a meteor and unleash incredible superpowers of speed, strength, intelligence, and empathy. With help and guidance from their mentor Johnny Puff, they transform into Tactik, Didi Damage, Megapie, and Mystic - a unified superhero team. While they are still just puffins with their own disagreements and issues, when help is needed, they are quick to put their differences aside, suit up, and fly out to save the day.
And now… here’s Johnny!
Themes such as gender, racial equality, and environmental protection are among issues addressed throughout the series. Amidst the absurd situations and gags, kids are introduced to these important societal themes.
This will be the first animated series produced in the Republic of Serbia in coordination with ILBE’s daughter company, Iervolino Studios, and Serbian Archangel Digital Studios. Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi have worked with Depp on several projects including the movies Waiting for the Barbarians and Minamata.
Puffins was inspired by the animated feature film Arctic Dogs, which was released theatrically in 2019 before heading to Netflix. ILBE acquired the spin-off rights from the original film, as well as merchandising, commercial exploitation, soundtrack, and print publishing rights. The deal led to the development of short form animations Puffins and Arctic Friends, and now the 3D animated series, Puffins Impossible.
