CAKE is bringing the Netflix original Legend Quest to MIPCOM this year.
Legend Quest, which was created by the Mexican studio Anima, premiered on Netflix in 2017 in 190 countries and was the first animated Netflix original series to be produced in Latin America. CAKE is now handling worldwide distribution, excluding LatAm. The title is available in 18 languages.
The show follows 12-year-old Leo, a reluctant hero who joins forces with a supernatural group of misfits when his hometown mysteriously vanishes into another dimension: Don Andrés, an eccentric yet amicable old knight; the unflappable Teodora; Alebrije, a shape-shifting, mythological creature; and Finado and Moribunda, two lively, ever-charming sugar candy skulls.
It is based on the characters created by Ricardo Arnaiz and the successful Las Leyendas film franchise created by Anima.
Ed Galton, CCO and managing director at CAKE, said, “We are delighted to be working with Anima once again and reintroducing this successful series to a wider international audience. Legend Quest already has an established fanbase following its premiere on Netflix and with global adventures, mythical creatures and a colorful cast of fantastical characters, it has all the ingredients of a hit international show.”
José C. García de Letona, executive producer at Legend Quest, added: “Legend Quest is a unique comedy series that explores mythical legends around the world with a thrilling twist. We are excited to work with CAKE again and are confident they will help us reach new audiences all over the world which will surely enjoy it.”
