Paris – MIPJunior announced the 2015 MIPJunior World Premiere TV Screening, Zorro the Chronicles.

Zorro the Chronicles (26×22’) is an action comedy series for kids and families produced by Cyber Group Studios (CGS) in association with Zorro Productions, in collaboration with Blue Spirit Studios and the participation of France Televisions and RAI. Cyber Group Studios distributes the series worldwide.

This latest telling of the masked superhero’s story – created in 1919 by pulp master Johnston McCulley – is the first-ever CGI adaptation of the adventures of Zorro. The show will benefit from CGS’s newly-developed technology in rendering, lighting and asset building, which gives the series feature-quality visuals and a truly realistic feel.

“It is a great creative responsibility to produce a new Zorro series, as Zorro is such a famous character that talks to generations worldwide. I am thrilled that both France Televisions and RAI have embarked very early on this project,” said Pierre Sissmann, President, Cyber Group Studios. “I want to thank them, as well as Zorro Productions International, for their trust, support and advice all along the production.”

“We are very proud to offer to a new generation of kids this 3D animated version of the exciting, iconic character, Zorro. It’s a pleasure, ever renewed, to follow the adventures of the most famous caped hero, motivated by his unstinting love of justice and freedom, defeating his enemies without using violence but rather by making them become a laughing stock! The brilliant work of Cyber Group Studios production, the originality of the stories and the quality of the animation will captivate both families and children who will undoubtedly appreciate seeing this revisited and modernised version of a loved classic on France 3,” explained Tiphaine de Raguenel, Head of Youth Programs for France Télévisions.
