Mermaid Magic Set for Netflix Debut in August


The first season of Mermaid Magic, from Rainbow and Bardel, has been scheduled to debut on Netflix globally in August.

Created and produced by Iginio Straffi (Winx Club), Mermaid Magic is slated for an August 22 launch on Netflix, with a licensing, marketing and digital campaign already underway. Rich Burns and Nancy Cohen (Spirit Riding Free) are the head writers, and Guy Bar’ely (Minions, Kung Fu Panda) is also on board.

Mermaid Magic is set in the underwater world of Mertropia and follows the adventures of fearless Princess Merlinda and her inseparable friends Sasha and Nerissa. These warrior mermaids embark on an epic journey to the surface world to battle the wicked pirate Barbarossa, who is draining the ocean’s magic.

Mermaid Magic is a show that pushes the boundaries of animation quality for TV,” said Straffi, creator and founder of Rainbow. “Every frame is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, creating a visual feast that truly brings the underwater world to life. This show is not just about stunning animation; it is about compelling storytelling. Our characters are richly developed, and their journeys are both relatable and inspiring. We’ve woven a narrative that captives audiences of all ages. Mermaid Magic is a perfect blend of breathtaking visuals and strong, emotional storytelling. We can’t wait for audiences to dive into this magical underwater adventure with our mermaid warriors”.
