Maya the Bee, Heidi, Gormiti Head to Amazon in Italy & Spain


The animated kids’ properties Maya the Bee, Heidi and Gormiti are set to join the Amazon Prime Video catalog in Italy and Spain via a deal with Planeta Junior.

Maya the Bee, which follows the adventures of the titular character and her cast of insect friends, and Heidi, a show that tells the story of the 8-year-old orphan, are now streaming in both countries. Gormiti, a brand-new action comedy aimed at boys ages 5 to 8, is currently available in Italy and will bow later this year in Spain.

Season two of Maya the Bee introduces a new guest, Theo, a young bee with a prosthetic wing, who also joins Maya’s adventures. In Heidi, the eponymous character—teamed with her friends Pierre and Clara—discovers the beauty of the Swiss Alps, as well as friendship, cooperation and generosity.

Gormiti, meanwhile, is a 3D CGI action and comedy series based on the action figures of the same name. It is produced by the figures’ creator, Giochi Preziosi, and Planeta Junior, and is developed by Kotoc and created by Romain Van Liemt. More than 500 million of the action figures have been sold in over 50 countries.
