Hit pre-school series Gigantosaurus lands new worldwide broadcast deals with Disney and France Televisions

Cyber Group Studios has secured new broadcast deals with Disney and France Televisions for the newest seasons of its hit pre-school series, Gigantosaurus.

The popular CGI-animated series will add 104 new episodes, featuring all-new songs, to be made available worldwide on both Disney Junior and Disney+ as well as France Télévisions and Germany’s Super RTL.

“Gigantosaurus has been a gigantic hit with kids around the globe and we’re excited about the opportunity to bring even more of the prehistoric fun to families with Seasons two and three,” said Pierre Sissmann, president and CEO of Cyber Group Studios.

“Disney has been a fantastic partner and we’re looking forward to continuing to work together to achieve even bigger success for the Gigantosaurus brand ahead. We are also proud to have both France Télévisions and Super RTL as part of this exciting adventure.”

Tiphaine de Raguenel, head of content for young audiences and animation, France Télévisions, added: “Following the discovery of The Pirates Next Door series, France Télévisions is very proud to support this new French production of  Cyber Group Studios, based on Jonny Duddle’s book.

“With the big bad Gigantosaurus, children will learn to cope with their fears  and  will take a leap for a new adventure in the fabulous world of Dinosaurs.”

Buoyed by the series’ on-screen ratings success, Cyber Group Studios has launched an extensive licensing program for the brand. The debut collection of Gigantosaurus toys from global master toy partner Jakks Pacific is now at major retailers across the US, with worldwide distribution to follow in 2020.

Global master publishing partner Templar is set to release more than 40 TV tie-in books over the next two years. In addition, Cyber Group Studios and Outright Games are now in production on the first-ever video game based on the series, to be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC with a release date soon to be announced.
