Discovery Family Channel is set to debut Hanni and the Wild Woods, from Korean creator Minah Eom and TOBEIT Global Corp., on April 1.
The aim of the new series is to give preschoolers a greater appreciation and understanding of the importance of nature and motivate them to care for the world. It will premiere in Spanish on Discovery Familia on April 2, a day after its original debut.
“As a mother who is constantly inspired by my two daughters, it was important for me to create a show that inspires children to go outside and enjoy nature,” Eom said. “By showing them its inherent beauty, I hope to plant within them at a young age a desire and a sense of duty to protect our planet.”
“We are excited to bring our viewers on a journey along with Hanni and the Forest Friends through the wonderful world we live in,” said Corenna Smith, director of content and marketing at Discovery Family Channel. “Introducing younger audiences and their parents to Hanni provides them with a way to share their love and respect for Mother Nature through these thoughtfully and beautifully produced stories.”
