New show about a world of magical, singing centaurs, from ‘Pinky Malinky’ supervising animator Megan Nicole Dong, gets 20-episode order.
Netflix has just announced a 20-episode order of Centaurworld, a kids animated series from first-time showrunner Megan Nicole Dong. Centaurworld is centered around a war horse who is transported from her embattled world to a strange land inhabited by silly, singing centaurs of all species, shapes, and sizes. Desperate to return home, she befriends a group of these magical creatures and embarks on a journey that will test her more than any battle she's ever faced before.
Dong was a story artist on DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie before becoming a supervising director on Netflix’s Pinky Malinky. She will executive produce the series alongside Dominic Bisignano (Star vs the Forces of Evil) who will serve as co-executive producer. Meghan McCarthy (My Little Pony franchise) will serve as story editor. Toby Chu (Bao) will be the series composer.
The series will feature a mix of animation styles and each episode will include original songs in a variety of genres.
Centaurworld adds to Netflix’s robust lineup of original animated series currently in production at Netflix Animation, including City of Ghosts from Elizabeth Ito, Kid Cosmic from Craig McCracken, Battle Kitty from Matt Layzell, Maya and the Three from Jorge Gutierrez, and Trash Truck from Max Keane.
