The Bella Sara Company has confirmed that a movie based on the virtual fantasy world of horses is in production.
Canadian studios Entremedia Digital Films and Buffalo Gal Pictures have formed Magical Horses to produce the CGI movie, which post production being done by Telegael in Ireland. Toronto-based CCI Productions will handle additional production work.
Worldwide distribution partners include Entertainment One for North American DVD distribution, CCI for international distribution and WVG for DVD distribution in Germany.
"The extraordinary fantasy world of Bella Sara is a natural fit for a movie," said Gitte Odder Braendgaard, creator of the brand. "We are excited about the creative and distribution partnerships we have formed and look forward to bringing the first Bella Sara movie to children throughout the world in 2013."
George Stetar, who is in charge of worldwide licensing for the brand, added: "This is a tremendous development for Bella Sara. As the brand continues to grow, this movie will provide support for our entire marketing and licensing efforts worldwide."
