Based on the recently released feature film Turu, the Wacky Hen, Filmax’s Turu’s Musical Farm follows a hen that is described in the classic children’s song “La Gallina Turuleca.”
“Buyers will be able to watch some footage from Turu’s Musical Farm at NATPE,” says Iván Díaz, head of international sales. “A pilot will be ready at the end of February and the first 13 episodes will be completed at the end of the year. We wanted something really big, commercial and special for our animation comeback.”
Adding to its animated lineup, Filmax is also offering a trio of films: The Lunnis and the Great Fairy Tale Adventures, the first movie ever produced with the popular RTVE puppets; Elcano & Magellan, which was released in 2019 to mark the 500th anniversary of the first trip around the world; and Bikes, an environmentally-themed film for the preschool set.
