Nottingham Forest has appointed Planeta Junior imprint, also known as Planeta Editorial, as the Spanish publishing partner for Sendokai Champions.

Planeta Group will launch different narrative and activity books in Spain from May 2014 and throughout this year.

The books have been developed and edited by Planeta Junior and based on the Kotoc’s original idea.

The range will bring children adventures not previously explored in the animated series. Instead, the stories will provide a link between the first and second season.

Sendokai Champions, coproduced by Kotoc, TVE and Planeta Junior has reached more than four million kids in Spain in 2013 and the second season will premiere in Spain in May 2014.

Simba has already signed for toys), Panini for collectibles, Dracco for Candy, and Joumma Bags and Copywrite Europe Group for Back to School products.

“Through this agreement with Planeta Group, we will expand the possibilities of the brand, and will offer to the child a new educational and entertaining approach to the property," said David Pérez Andrés, director of sales and business development at Nottingham Forest.

Marta Bueno, director of children and youth area at Planeta Editorial, added: "We are very excited with the incorporation of Sendokai Champions to our catalogue, a series of a enormous potential thanks to the strength of its characters and the frenetic pace of the action.”
