The Chinese streamer teams up with Live Fun by Campfire Aniworks on 3DCG series that teaches kids about friendship, cooperation, and teamwork; currently in production, the show has already been picked-up by EBS Korea.
Chinese streaming platform Tencent Video announced its latest Tencent Video Original production, Rainbow Bubblegem. A 3DCG animated fantasy aimed at children aged 6-9, the show is being produced by Chinese partners Live Fun by Campfire Aniworks, Korea. Currently in production and set to launch in early 2022, the 52 x 11’ series has already been pre-sold to by EBS Korea.
The show recounts the magical adventures of seven mermaid princesses who must go to school on land to search for enchanted jewels to save their undersea realm from an evil witch. As the princesses learn to work together and adapt to new situations, children will learn about friendship, co-operation and how working as a team can lead to success.
Deep in the sea where mermaids live, the Merqueen created magical Bubblegems to protect the undersea kingdoms from evil forces. Now it’s time to find her successor - whichever princess gathers the Bubblegems will be the new queen. But the Bubblegems are scattered on the land and hidden in secret volcanos, so the seven mermaid princesses must leave the sea and go to human school while they search for the precious jewels. However, they are not alone on their quest - the wicked witch, Black Dia, is also after the gems. The witch, exiled in the dark deep sea, wants to find the Bubblegems so she can seize control of the sea world. Will her black magic prove too powerful for the young mermaid princesses, or can they work together to collect all the Bubblegems and save the undersea kingdom?
“Co-production is an important part of Tencent Kids’ strategy, and we are delighted to team up with Live Fun by Campfire Aniworks for this magical new series,” noted Selina She, Director of Kids’ IP Development and Programming Centre at Tencent Video.
Rainbow Bubblegem follows Tencent Video’s recently announced Tencent Video Originals co-productions with leading European studios Sixteen South (The Coop Troop), Zeilt Productions (Deep in the Bowl) and Silvergate Media (tba).
