The global toy maker, Moose Toys, has partnered with the entertainment powerhouse Warner Bros. Consumer Products to develop a range of toys to based on both its upcoming Space Jam: A New Legacy and Tom & Jerry feature films.
Space Jam: A New Legacy is the hotly anticipated re-imagining of the original beloved 1996 film Space Jam and stars NBA Superstar LeBron James alongside Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and other Looney Tunes characters. Tom & Jerry, meanwhile, is a live-action animated comedy inspired by the classic cartoon duo.
“We couldn’t be prouder to collaborate with Warner Bros., a recognized leader in entertainment around the globe,” said Paul Solomon, co-owner, Moose Toys. “With this partnership we are pushing innovation and design boundaries to create toys that are truly remarkable and worthy of the films and characters themselves.”
The partnership cements Moose Toys’ position as a key player in licensing. The toy maker continues to thoughtfully expand its collaborations, with the Warner Bros. deal joining an impressive list of recent licensing wins including, the master toy of Australian mega-hit animated series, Bluey and the activity line with leading YouTube creators Collins Key.
As part of its agreement, Moose will create a range of toys including figures, collectibles, plush characters and more. Additional details about the various lines will be shared closer to launch and will hit shelves slightly ahead of the movie release dates.
Both films are slated for release in 2021, with Tom & Jerry slated for March 5 and Space Jam: A New Legacy out July 16.
