‘This is a tremendously exciting project and we can’t wait for the Mr Bean fans on Facebook to join in the fun for this innovative new experience,’ says Endemol Shine’s Frances Adams.

The first ever live animated Mr Bean event is set to launch on Facebook Live this May.

Thanks to a new deal with Endemol Shine Group, Silent Boom and Adobe, fans will be able to take part in the event on Wednesday May 3rd, where an animated Mr Bean will play a game of charades and interact live with his 70 million Facebook audience.

All capable thanks to Adobe’s Character Animator, the livestream will see Mr Bean perform charades using sounds from the recently released Mr Bean Soundboard app.  

“This is a tremendously exciting project and we can’t wait for the Mr Bean fans on Facebook to join in the fun for this innovative new experience,” said Frances Adams, global director of brands and licensing at Endemol Shine Group.

“The Mr Bean brand is seeing phenomenal online growth which is testament to the bold and ambitious work of the wonderfully talented teams here at Endemol Shine Group.”
