Streamer adds ‘Madagascar: A Little Wild,’ ‘TrollsTopia’ and ‘The Mighty Ones’ to its kids programming roster.
Moving to increase its kids programming and animation lineups, Hulu has ordered three new series from DreamWorks Animation; Hulu Originals Madagascar: A Little Wild, TrollsTopia and The Mighty Ones will all premiere in 2020.
Madagascar: A Little Wild, features the loveable foursome of Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe and Gloria the Hippo. The series showcases the team as kids residing in their rescue habitat at the Central Park Zoo. They might be small, but like everybody who lands in New York City, these little guys have big dreams and Madagascar: A Little Wild will follow all of their adventures. Madagascar: A Little Wild is executive produced by Johanna Stein (Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny).
TrollsTopia will be a new original based off the famous Trolls franchise following Poppy and other enchanting characters from the upcoming feature film Trolls World Tour.
The Mighty Ones follows the hilarious adventures of a group of creatures: a twig, a pebble, a leaf and a strawberry. These best friends, self-named The Mighty Ones, live in an unkempt backyard belonging to a trio of equally unkempt humans whom they mistake for gods. Despite their diminutive stature, The Mighty Ones are determined to live life large and always have fun in their wild world. The series is executive produced by Sunil Hall (Pickle and Peanut) and Lynne Naylor-Reccardi (Samurai Jack).
As part of the deal, Hulu also becomes a new streaming home to future slates of DreamWorks Animation feature and library films and as well as brand-new original series.
