Cartoon Network Latin America Greenlights Viking Tales Animated Shorts Series
This week (05/09/2017 – 10/09/2017) is the 2017 Pixelatl Animation Festival in Cuernavaca, Mexico and at the festival, Cartoon Network Latin America has announced that they’ve greenlit a new animated series of shorts based on Ivanobich Verduzco’s creation – Viking Tales (Latin American Spanish title – Vikingos). The new series will be produced by Mighty Animation in Mexico and it also won the grand prize for Pixelatl’s Ideatoon competition in 2016. Ivanobich along with Luis Patricio Salmón, the producer of visual content at Mighty Animation, were also present at the Cartoon Network: New IP’s panel yesterday afternoon at the Pixelatl festival.
Viking Tales tells the story of Reidar and his fellow Vikings, together they traverse through the great Land of Midgard finding treasure, fighting giant monsters and above all having a lot of fun. The new series can be defined as an action comedy. At present, it’s not known when Viking Tales will air on Cartoon Network Latin America or on its YouTube channel in a similar manner to its other recent short-form animated success – Villainous.
