Disney Announces EMEA Original Animated Series ‘Magicampers’

Today, Disney Branded Television and Disney Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) took to the stage at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival to announce new projects, debut sneak-peeks, and highlight the expansion of current hit series that are poised to usher in the next century of Disney storytelling.

Titled “The Next 100,” the presentation centered on both Disney’s storied legacy in animation, as well as how the company is creating the next generation of hits. Hélène Etzi, country manager and general manager of media for The Walt Disney Company France, opened the presentation with Orion Ross, vice president of Animation for The Walt Disney Company EMEA, and Ayo Davis, president of Disney Branded Television, making several announcements.

Ross announced greenlights for the all-new preschool adventure series “Magicampers,” set to premiere globally on Disney+ and Disney Junior next year.

Disney’s preschool original “Magicampers” follows the adventures of best friends Darly and Loomis at a day camp for magical creatures on a fantastical island. Darly is half-pig and half-Pegasus, Loomis is half-donkey and half-unicorn, and their young friends are also mythical mashups of all stripes. Every day they go on incredible journeys of discovery and dream of becoming legendary, having their stories told and retold for all time. At the heart of the series, Darly and Loomis will learn that becoming a legend isn’t about mastering magic powers or winning the biggest prize — it’s about understanding and accepting yourself and others and working together with all kinds of friends. The series stars a diverse young cast as the “Magicampers,” with Emmy® Award winner Uzo Aduba (“Mrs. America,” “Orange Is the New Black”) as nature spirit and camp leader Treena.

Creator is Obie Scott Wade.  Executive Producer i sSandrine Nguyen Tiet.  Director is Daniel Dubuis.  Writers are  Ashley Mendoza, Simon Nicholson, and Elizabeth Kamir.  The series is produced by Mikros Animation for Disney EMEA.
