Cartoon Network France Long Live The Royals Premieres 17th December

Cartoon Network France Long Live The Royals Premieres 17th December

Cartoon Network France Long Live The Royals Premieres 17th December

Cartoon Network’s medieval mini-series – Long Live The Royals (French title: Royal!) will premiere on Cartoon Network France just before Christmas on Saturday 17th December at 10.25am. The mini-series follows a kingdom’s royal family during an important annual festival.

However, unlike a royal family in the Middle Ages, they actually have more things in common with a typical modern family: a father that tries to relate to his children (King Rufus), a bossy mother (Queen Eleanor), a party loving daughter that cares about animals (Princess Rosalind), a son that prefers to study and be left alone (Prince Peter) and a younger son who’s a spoiled brat (Prince Alex). In the French dub, French comedian and humorist Baptiste Lecaplain performs the voice acting role for Prince Peter.

The miniseries will be repeated on Cartoon Network France on 18th, 21st, 23rd, 24th and 25th December.
