Kuala Lumpur – Malaysia’s Animasia Studio has successfully licensed its animated series, Chuck Chicken (52 eps x 11’) to Disney Channel Southeast Asia. The animated series, which targets children 7 to 11 years old, will premiere on Disney Channel Southeast Asia in August 2015 throughout the region, including Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. The 2D animated series will be featured in multiple languages, such as English, Bahasa Malaysia, Mandarin, Bahasa Indonesia, and Thai.
The action packed comedic story takes place on a bird-filled island called Rocky Perch, which tells a story of Chuck who turns into ‘Kung Fu Chicken’, providing Kung Fu style security and protection to the citizens of the island. When Chuck inherits a very special amulet in the shape of a golden egg with amazing powers, Chuck goes bizarre utilizing his powerful new abilities.
