25 Oct - 2021

Nelvana Secures New Global Licensing Deals for BAKUGAN® in Canada and France

Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana, a world-leading international producer, distributor and licensor of children’s animated and live-action content, Spin Master-Corp., a leading global children’s entertainment company and creators of BAKUGAN®, and TMS Entertainment announced the greenlight and start of production for an epic new season of BAKUGAN® titled Bakugan : Evolutions (26 x 22 mins). The fourth season of the hit anime adventure series is set to premiere in early 2022 in Canada on TELETOON and live and on demand on STACKTV through Amazon Prime Video Channels. Seasons 1 through 3 are currently available on Netflix in both Canada and U.S., and Seasons 2 and 3 are available on STACKTV in Canada.

 “As the success of the Bakugan franchise continues to flourish globally, we’re excited to elevate our audiences’ experiences,” said Mellany Masterson, Head of Nelvana Enterprises. “The new world created for Bakugan: Evolutions is sure to engross audiences with bigger and better battles than ever before, and the new products from Spin Master and our licensees will further engage our fans.”

The franchise continues to make its mark as a global phenomenon with Bakugan driving the battling toy segment and over 20 licensees signed covering soft lines, home décor, publishing and more. Most recently, Nelvana has signed on new licensees in France including Sun City (apparel) and Aymax (bedlinen), both set to launch products this Christmas. Additionally, Hachette continues to add to its publishing offering with new titles releasing this fall. In Canada, Nelvana continues to build its licensing program with Scholastic (publishing), Exclusive Brands (confectionery), Franco Manufacturing (home accessories) and a soon to be announced apparel and accessories partner.

“We’re committed to deepening our fans connection to the franchise, sharing the adventures of Bakugan with audiences on a global scale through the successful series and integrated toy line,” said Jennifer Dodge, President, Spin Master Entertainment. “Together with Nelvana, we have seen the Bakugan fan base build substantially over the years, inspiring the production of new Bakugan : Evolutions content that will be more innovative, accessible and interactive than ever before.”

In Bakugan: Evolutions, fan-favourite Bakugan heroes – including Drago, Trox, Pegatrix, Hydorous, Howlkor and Pharol – return stronger, faster and better than ever! Strange occurrences begin to happen in the new action-packed season; elemental energy from Vestroia is seeping into Earth, creating strange phenomena and causing Bakugan to rage out with excess energy! It’s not all bad though, as our heroes realize the Vestroian elemental energy is also causing elemental evolutions among our Bakugan! Along with these new evolutions comes a new breed of elemental brawlers, propelling the Awesome Brawlers to adapt and in effect, take Bakugan brawling to a whole new level, unlocking even more awesome powers and evolutions! Once again, the fate of two worlds, Earth and Vestroia, rests in the hands of the Awesome Brawlers and their Bakugan partners.
