Disney Channel Russia has bought Arthur and the Minimoys from Studio 100 Media | m4e and will launch the CGI-animated boys-action series in April.

The 26 x 24’ series is based on the fantasy novels for children and the successful Arthur movie trilogy, created and directed by Luc Besson of The Fifth Element fame.

It was co-produced by Besson’s Storia TV with Studio 100 Animation, Lagardère Group and Disney Channel Germany.

Arthur and the Minimoys tells the story of a solitary young dreamer who, thanks to his boundless imagination, big heart, immense courage and legendary friends, learns to become the biggest of all the Minimoys, a race of minuscule human-like beings.

It premiered on the French Cab Sat channel Tiji on Christmas 2017 and has since sold to 80 territories. Other global broadcasters on board include Gulli (France), OUF tivi (Belgium), Disney Channel (Germany), RAI (Italy) or TVP ABC (Poland).
