Miffy The Movie goes to Warner Bros for distribution in Benelux, Noori for South Korea, and Kino Swiat for Poland at the Cannes market.
Spanish outfit 6 Sales has sold Dutch animation film Miffy The Movie to Warner Bros for distribution in Benelux, Noori for South Korea, and Kino Swiat for Poland at the Cannes market.
The stop motion film is based on the best-selling children’s book series of the 1950s by Dutch author and illustrator Dick Bruna about the adventures of a rabbit called Miffy, which was also turned into a recent popular TV series.
The film will see Miffy and her friends set out on a treasure hunt at the zoo, and is expected to be ready by November 2011, with Warner Bros releasing it in Benelux the following year.
Dutch outfits Telescreen and Mercis BV are co-producing the project alongside Dutch Public Broadcaster KRO with backing from the Media Programme and Dutch Film Fund.
The executive studio will be A. Film Denmark, known for its work on films such as FernGully: The Last Rainforest (1992), Quest For Camelot (1998) and Asterix And The Vikings (2005).
