Toon2Tango has unveiled its first production, a new original series titled Rebel Nature.
Rebel Nature, aimed at an audience of tweens and upwards, is set in the near future and follows a girl who has been brought up by a robot and lived her life to date on an artificial intelligence-controlled oil rig. Production on the series is set to begin in 2020.
The new show is created by Christian Faber, one of the main creators of Bionicle, a story-led LEGO product based on a tale of heroic beings battling evil in a mythical universe.
Rebel Nature will focus on our world and one young girl caught in the middle of the battle between out of control technology and nature in an unseen evolution. Like Bionicle this will be a concept led by storytelling. The series will also echo Faber’s previous work in using multiple media platforms to reach the largest possible audience. The show now being produced will be seen across linear, VOD and OTT, as well as across a variety of print media.
Toon2Tango will be co-producing the show with Rebel Nature Pictures and handling global distribution, as well as building a merchandising and licensing program underpinned by sustainability and environmentally friendly products.
Ulli Stoef, founder of Toon2Tango, said: “The ideas behind Rebel Nature are original and arresting and as far from the mainstream as possible without sacrificing any of the thrills and fantastic storytelling that characterize truly great entertainment. At the same time, the story is very relevant in the context of today’s global challenges. We’re delighted to be working with Christian and his team, and fully expect with Rebel Nature to lay down a marker for the sort of exciting, unique ideas that we hope will drive Toon2Tango’s work.”
