NCircle Entertainment has sealed a deal with Cyber Group Studios for the North American home-entertainment rights to Gigantosaurus.
The CGI animated series airs on Disney Channel and Disney Junior. The show is set to land on DVD at Walmart and Target and other retailers beginning January 2020, with content to be made available via electronic sell-through starting next April.
Gigantosaurus has built up a stable of licensing partners in North America, including master toy licensee JAKKS Pacific and publishing partner Templar Publishing. Other products set for retail rollout in 2020 include soft lines introductions from American Marketing Enterprises, Centric Socks, Children’s Apparel Network and Jay Franco. The first video game inspired by Gigantosaurus will be released by Outright Games next spring for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
“We’re very excited to be working with NCircle Entertainment to make Gigantosaurus content available on DVD and streaming platforms for fans across North America,” said Richard Goldsmith, president and CEO of Cyber Group Studios USA. “NCircle is a leader in its field and an outstanding partner that will help us further develop our consumer products program into a powerhouse in the preschool space.”
“Gigantosaurus is a fantastic new series and we are thrilled to partner with Cyber Group Studios to expand their product offerings at retail through our category,” said Mary Flynn, VP of sales, content and acquisitions at NCircle Entertainment. “Our primary focus is on entertainment that educates, and Gigantosaurus will be the perfect addition to our product line-up this year and for years to come.”
Gigantosaurus is based on Jonny Duddle’s bestselling book of the same name. The series will debut worldwide on Disney this year and launch on Netflix in 2020.
