Cartoon Network greenlights Summer Camp Island, a wildly imaginative animated series based on the original short created by Julia Pott (Adventure Time). Having completed a momentous run at this year’s Sundance Film Festival where it was screened as part of the Animated Short Films category, the short will now extend into a series and continue unfolding the mysteries that Oscar and his best friend Hedgehog encounter at a magical summer camp. Summer Camp Island is produced by Cartoon Network Studios and is slated to debut next year.
Currently making its round on the global festival circuit, the short Summer Camp Island has also screened and won at Ottawa International Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival and American Film Institute. The series will follow Oscar and his best friend Hedgehog, who have just been dropped off at their first summer camp.
