Tainá and the Amazon Guardians Notches Up Deals


Dandelooo has landed a raft of deals for the new preschool adventure CGI series Tainá and the Amazon Guardians, which is headed to Netflix in Latin America, among other platforms.

The series has been picked up by the Brazilian public television networks TV Brazil and BAND TV, Nick Jr. in Brazil and Latin America, the Turkish pay platform D-Smart and kids’ content distributor Neo Content in China. The show is based on the successful Brazilian films of the same name.

Tainá and the Amazon Guardians is produced by Brazil’s Sincrocine in association with Hype and Nick Jr. Brazil. Created by Pedro Carlos Rovai and Virginia Limberger, the 52×11-minute series is targeted at 2- to 5-year olds.

Dandelooo Founders Jean Baptiste Wéry and Emmanuèle Petry commented, “Tainá is a fantastic series which portrays strong messages to children in an accessible and entertaining way. It’s crucial that we teach children the importance of nature, the environment, the Amazon and everything that lives there, and we feel that Tainá is the perfect series to communicate these topics to children around the world.”

Virginia Limberger, producer at Sincrocine, added, “Tainá encourages preschool children to deal with the cognitive aspects of their age, in a playful and light way, helping them to have a good relationship with their friends. And, the children can also discover about the Amazon Rainforest and how to take care of nature. All of that with content full of adventure. KIRIMBAU! (Indigenous term).”
