Australian animation house Energee Entertainment is planning to spin its not-yet-released first feature, The Magic Pudding, into a television series.

International sales agent Icon Entertainment International has sold The Magic Pudding feature to more than a dozen territories including Bac Films for France and Gruppo Minerva for Italy. It will be using its own distribution division to launch the film in the UK in Easter 2001. In Australia the film will be released by 20th Century Fox on December 14.

Energee acquired all rights to classic children's book The Magic Pudding from the family of the late author, Norman Lindsay, about three years ago.
