Korean CGI studio SAMG Animation, co-producer of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir is said to be expanding broadcasting and licensing activities for its new series Monkart: Legend of Monster Kart.
The fantasy-adventure series follows monster battles and kart racing in a medieval setting. The show, aimed at kids between ages six to 12, has been inked for broadcast with EBS in South Korea.
The makers are currently in talks with broadcasters in Europe and MEA. Monkart has been co-produced by KT, EBS and Young Toys with Yamaguchi Ryota serving as chief writer and Sung Chang as animation director.
Master toy partner Young Toys will launch 10 vehicle-based toys later this year with additional products set to hit shelves next year. The line targets boys and girls ages four to seven and will feature a number of transforming toys, including karts that convert into different characters when paired with different docking parts.
Additional licensing partners cover a number of categories including stationery, publishing, apparel, pharmacy goods, bedding, food and beverage, live shows and seasonal goods.
