Aardman’s Morph makes his return with Sky Kids partnership

Iconic TV character Morph is making his return to screens once again courtesy of an exclusive partnership with Sky Kids and the Sky Kids app.

Developed in partnership with the Oscar-winning studio Aardman, fifteen new episodes will be available exclusively through Sky Kids, with five episodes released each month from October to December.

Kids will also be able to engage with a host of up to eight movie-making Morph tutorials, titles Make You Own Movies with Merlin – via the Sky Kids app and other Sky platforms, helping fans learn the process of creating animated movies.

“It’s fantastic to be launching the new series of Morph on Sky Kids and Morph and sidekick Chas are extremely excited to be back on screens,” said Peter Lord, Aardman co-founder and co-creator of Morph.

“At Aardman, we are really passionate about inspiring creativity in young audiences – encouraging kids to be creators and not just consumers – so the addition of the Make Your Own Movies with Merlin tutorials adds real value to the series, and will no doubt help to inspire a new generation of animators.”

Morph joins a cast of other popular children’s series to launch on the Sky Kids platform, including Sky 1’s populkar science panel show Duck Quacks Don’t Echo: Kids featuring Lee Mack.

Lucy Murphy, head of kids content, Sky, said: “We are really excited welcome Morph to the Sky Kids family.

“Morph is an iconic British character and we are so excited to have been able to commission these brilliant new episodes from the talented team at Aardman.

“At Sky, we’re committed to offering the very best entertainment for the whole family and over the past few months the Sky Kids app has gone from strength to strength.

“With over 4,500 episodes now available on demand, Morph joins a fantastic line-up of favourite characters and we know that our audience, both young and old, will love his new adventures.”
