Studio 100 Media signs distribution deal with WeKids Asia for ‘Maya the Bee,’ ‘Vic the Viking,’ ‘Nils Holgersson, and ‘The Wild Adventures of Blinky Bill.’
MUNICH -- German distribution and production company Studio 100 Media has joined forces with China’s leading animation provider WeKids Asia, bringing four of the company’s most renowned brands -- Maya the Bee, Vic the Viking, Nils Holgersson and Blinky Bill -- to the Chinese market. WeKids has acquired the rights to distribute the shows via television, VOD platforms and Home Video.
“We are enthusiastic to start working with Sean Chu and his talented team on four of our most popular brands in the territory of China. We are convinced that our partnership with WeKids is the right step to significantly increase the awareness of our characters in the Chinese market and we look forward to a fruitful cooperation,” said Martin Krieger, Studio 100 Media’s Head of Global Distribution.
“We are so excited to start working with Studio 100 Media in China. Chinese kids and families love story-driven classic titles like Nils Holgersson. Furthermore, because classic Nils Holgersson was one of few animated TV series introduced into China from abroad in the 1980s, I believe today’s Chinese parents will want to share their affection for Nils Holgersson with their kids as they watch the newly animated Nils series,” said Sean Chu, CEO of WeKids.
