Family entertainment giant and Nickelodeon announce the U.S. launch of brand-new animated series bringing classic fairy tale characters into the modern world.
At Licensing Expo 2016, family entertainment producer Rainbow and Nickelodeon, the number-one entertainment brand for kids, announced the launch of the brand-new animated series Regal Academy (26 episodes) on Saturday, August 13, in the U.S.
The series brings classic fairy tale characters into the modern world as it follows the adventures of Rose Cinderella, a normal girl who suddenly discovers she’s the granddaughter of Cinderella. Following the U.S. debut, Regal Academy will begin to roll out on Nickelodeon platforms worldwide later this year.
Featuring a mix of comedy and music, Regal Academy offers an inventive take on the familiar world of fairy tales. Rose Cinderella is a regular teen girl until she learns about her unique lineage and becomes immersed in the world of fairy tales. Rose is enrolled at the fabled Regal Academy where her fellow schoolmates include Hawk SnowWhite, Travis Beast, Joy LeFrog, Astoria Rapunzel and LingLing Iron Fan, all of whom belong to the school’s founding families.
Created and produced by Rainbow in coproduction with Rai Fiction, Regal Academy has been sold in over 120 countries and we have over 80 licensing agreements in different categories. The show premiered in Italy last May on the Rai YoYo channel, reaching very high ratings.
