Magic Frame and Creation Entertainment Ink ‘Rebellious’ Distribution Deals

The film, a contemporary spin on the classic fairytale, screens February 17 at EFM; agreements with Dazzler Media and The Plot Picture will bring the 3DCG animated feature to the U.K. and MENA regions, respectively.

Magic Frame Animation and Creation Entertainment Media announced new global distribution deals with Dazzler Media and The Plot Pictures for the 3DCG animated feature film Rebellious. Dazzler Media will handle distribution of the film in the U.K. and Ireland, where the film will have its domestic release. Following this, Plot Pictures will distribute the film across MENA regions and Turkey.

Having already secured interest from several global territories, Magic Frame Animation and Creation Entertainment Media is hosting a screening to introduce the film at the European Film Market (EFM) Saturday, February 17. EFM runs through February 21.

Inspired by the classic “Beauty and the Beast” story, Rebellious is a contemporary fairytale that follows a headstrong princess who is kidnapped by Kezabor, an evil sorcerer. The princess’ clever fiancé must use his wit in an epic quest to find her, while the princess boldly challenges her captors and plots her own daring escape.

The studios have attached Annalisa LaBianco (The Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Tom and Jerry in New York) and Jeffery Spencer (Secret Magic Control Agency) to the project, with director Alex Tcitcilin (Secret Magic Control Agency) also onboard. The film’s music is by composer, co-producer, and Creation Entertainment Media CEO Sefi Carmel and created in Dolby Atmos by SphereTrax. The sound design and Dolby Atmos mixing is by Soundtrack Creation in London.

“After years in the making, all the hard work has paid off,” said Carmel. “We are super proud to announce that Rebellious will have a U.K. release with Dazzler Media, with The Plot Pictures distributing the film to other global territories. Nothing will give me more joy than watching this fantastic, animated feature with my kids at our local cinema and sharing this story around the world”.

Rebellious is a completely modern fairytale featuring diverse characters and exciting adventures that appeal to audiences everywhere,” added Magic Frame Animation head of sales and co-productions Lidia Chirita. “We are thrilled to announce these new partnerships that will introduce our story to the UK, Ireland, MENA territories, and Turkey. We look forward to sharing Rebellious with more potential buyers at EFM soon!”
