Genius Brands International (GBI) is set to release a new animated pre-school series known as Rainbow Rangers.

The company has teamed up with Rob Minkoff, director of Disney’s Lion King, and Shane Morris, co-writer of Frozen, to develop the new show, which will feature CGI animation.

Key series designs have been created by Brittany Myers and Ruben Aquino, who both acted as supervising animator on many Disney characters in the past.

Meanwhile, Minkoff will produce the series with Morris serving as producer and head writer, along with his partner Tim Mansfield.

“We are absolutely ecstatic to be working in collaboration with Rob, Shane, Tim and Ruben on developing this joyous, empowering adventure for little girls,” said Andy Heyward, chairman and CEO of GBI.

“The creative genius being poured into this original and powerful property is already attracting incredible interest from all sectors of the industry.”

The series will follow the adventures of seven magical girls from the other side of the rainbow, who protect Earth from an evil villain.

Morris added: “Rainbow Rangers is an exciting premise with fantastic characters and an incredible world.

"It's also inspirational. It's about the amazing power and strength of these seven magical girls. I truly enjoy writing stories that demonstrate girls can do anything, and when girls work together, well, anything is possible.”
