Co-founded with Charles Lefebvre, director and artistic director at La Chouette Compagnie, the studio’s first productions include Dragon Striker for Disney+ and Dreamland for ADN.

Mariam Hachmi, CEO of La Chouette Compagnie, said: “We’re proud of how far we’ve come in this decade. We’re putting a piece back into the machine for another round, this time in the company of our dearest Charles Lefebvre, a brilliant director with exceptional artistic and technical vision. Working with him for many years has been a privilege, and I’m honored that he’s joining us for this new step with Chouette Studio.”

Sylvain Dos Santos, CCO of La Chouette Compagnie, commented: “Chouette Studio is the result of many years of passionate work from our teams for anime culture and traditional 2D animation. We look forward to sharing our savoir-faire with new partners.”
