Ink Global will be presenting its new animation Zafari to visitors at MIP Junior in October.
Zafari comes from the mind of David Dozoretz, an animation visionary who worked on the Star Wars prequels and contributed to movies including Jurassic Park, Forrest Gump, Star Trek and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.
The series boasts a multi-million euro budget and follows Zoomba, an elephant with zebra stripes, and his group of animal friends who live in Zafari, a home for animals born with the skin of other animals.
Zafari focuses on the themes of inclusivity and friendship, telling kids that everybody is unique and that their differences should be celebrated.
“There is a big buzz growing around this property – it has such an incredible pedigree through David Dozoretz and no expense will be spared during the production process,” said director Claus Tømming.
“Zafari, with its strong message of embracing our differences, is a story that needs to be told to the world. We believe this enhances the brand and makes it really stand out in a crowded market.
"The fact that broadcasters are already signing up in the pre-production phase shows its potential and MIP Junior represents a huge opportunity for both broadcasters and licensees to link up with what will be a massive global property.”
