Academy Award®-nominated French animation studio Xilam Animation will launch its brand-new preschool series Oggy Oggy (156 x 7’) during a Virtual Showcase event for TV channel and platform commissioners and buyers, which will run from 7-9 April.
Additionally, Xilam will introduce a consumer products component to its upcoming event, which will also be headlined by Oggy Oggy!
Created by Xilam Animation’s Jean Cayrol & Cédric Guarneri, Oggy Oggy (156 x 7’) is a new preschool spin-off to Xilam’s iconic Oggy and the Cockroaches franchise and is set to be delivered later this year. The series sees young Oggy freed from the ceaseless tyranny of the cockroaches, with playfulness, adventures and friends making his new daily life so fun. Curious and daring, Oggy Oggy is always eager to live new experiences and if he can help a friend along the way: the more the merrier! Some may find that his clumsiness can lead to mistakes, but his fabulous resourcefulness sees him achieve great things. His kooky ideas always work!
Under the inaugural consumer component, alongside new preschool IP Oggy Oggy, Xilam will present licensing opportunities for Lupin’s Tales and Where’s Chicky, as well as its classic properties including Oggy and the Cockroaches and Zig & Sharko.
“We’ve very excited to host our second Virtual Showcase event this April, which will include a brand new licensing and merchandising component. Over the course of three days, partners and potential licensees will have the chance to drop in and become immersed in the world of our brands, such our new and very charming preschool IP Oggy Oggy, as well as our beloved classic properties like Oggy and the Cockroaches and Zig & Sharko. As our brand portfolio continues to expand and diversify, we’re really looking forward to chatting with potential partners during the event and to building engaging, fresh and colourful consumer products programmes together.”
