Firm reveals new international distribution partners ahead of MIPTV next month.

4Kids Entertainment has completed home video licensing agreements for Dinosaur King in several key territories, the firm's executive VP of international, Brian Lacey, has revealed.

Ahead of the forthcoming MIPTV event in Cannes, deals have been finalised or reached in principle with several prominent home video distributors including Universal (France), Contender (E1) (UK), Magna Pacific (Australia and New Zealand), RTI (Italy), KSM GmbH (Germany), Prisvideo (Portugal), North Video (Czech Republic and Slovakia), Stars Entertainment (Bulgaria) and Interdomino (Romania and Hungary).

In addition, following on from the deal with Shout Factory in the US, 4Kids has signed with Imavision to distribute Dinosaur King across Canada.

"Dinosaur King continues to show great strength throughout the world," said Lacey. "These latest deals affirm the universal appeal of its compelling imagery and storytelling."
