Zagtoon Expands Into the United States, Pitches New Properties
There will be a new big player in America’s animation business soon, if the folks at Zag Studios have anything to say about it.
Founded by Jeremy Zag and Saban Entertainment co-founder Jacqueline Tordjman, Zag is an entertainment firm based in France that has expanded into a global enterprise with offices in Paris, Brussels, Seoul, Tokyo and Beverly Hills since its establishment in 2009. Its TV animation division Zagtoon specializes in CGI animated television programming for kids that has already reached over 150 markets around the world, while Zag Animation Studios is developing feature film projects both animated and a mixture of animation with live action. Now with a brand new studio opening in Glendale, California this summer and a presence at the 2014 Licensing Expo in Las Vegas this past week, Zag has set its sights on North America.
Zag is touting its ongoing development and production of twelve different original properties. Four in particular made their North American debut at the 2014 Licensing Expo: LadyBug, Ghostforce, Superstar and Powearth. Curiously public information about Powearth seems entirely elusive, but information and assets exist for the other three.
