Studio 100 Media’s brand-new CGI-animated series 100% Wolf—Legend of the Moonstone has hit the number one spot on the list of most-screened series at MIPJunior.
The comedy-adventure series, aimed at kids ages 6 to 10, tells the story of Freddy Lupin, heir to a proud family line of werewolves, who was in shock when on his 13th birthday, his first “warfing” went awry, turning him into a poodle rather than a ferocious monster. Now enrolled in the prestigious Howlington Academy, Freddy must prove that he still has the heart of a werewolf.
Freddy’s off to a rough start when he makes an enemy of schoolmate Ivan Beowolf, a boy from a powerful, rival werewolf family. If that wasn’t enough, someone has stolen the sacred moonstone and is unleashing increasingly weird and dangerous animal hybrids on the town.
The 26×22-minute series is produced by Flying Bark Productions, together with ABC Australia and Super RTL Germany as commissioning broadcasters. 100% Wolf—Legend of the Moonstone is based on the Australian book 100% Wolf by Jayne Lyons.
Martin Krieger, CEO at Studio 100 Media, said, “What makes 100% Wolf—Legend of the Moonstone special is its hilarious and dramatic concept about a boy trying to find his way in a challenging world—one in which he is an outsider. He is a pink poodle in a world of werewolves. This guarantees a lot of laugh-out-loud humor—not leaving out the difficulties our hero Freddy has. That makes 100% Wolf a unique action-adventure best-friend comedy with a very distinctive main character and a strong message with high social relevance: heroes come in many forms! We are thrilled with the response from this year’s screening and look forward to 100% Wolf being a ‘howling’ hit with kids worldwide.”
