LONDON: The second season of the non-dialogue comedy Sunny Bunnies has been licensed by The Walt Disney Company EMEA.
Disney’s new agreement follows the lead of its sister channels in the U.S., Southeast Asia, CEEMEA (CEE, the Middle East and Africa), Russia/CIS, Australia/New Zealand and Japan. Season two will go out on Disney Junior in the U.K., Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and French-speaking Europe, Spain, Italy and Italian-speaking Europe, as well as in the Nordic, Baltic and Benelux territories, Portugal/PALOP, Ireland and Andorra.
The second season, which launched on the Sunny Bunnies YouTube channel in January 2017, features a new character—the Big Grey Wolf—who has come from the moon on a mission to kidnap the bunnies. The show is created by Digital Light Studio and is represented by Media I.M.
Irina Nazarenko, co-founder of Media I.M., said: “The Sunny Bunnies keep on surprising us—every time we think we’ve reached peak Bunny, they go one better. With this latest Disney deal, our little friends have literally conquered the world. Our next step is to migrate the Sunny Bunnies from screen to playground via a range of toys and books. The feedback from the YouTube channel is quite clear: kids don’t just want to watch the Bunnies; they want to touch them, play with them and join them in real-world adventures.”
