Platinum Films’ Matt Hatter Chronicles is set to debut on Disney Benelux in spring 2014.
Seasons one and two of the animation will premiere next year on Disney XD across The Netherlands, Luxembourg and Dutch-speaking Belgium. It will be supported online with digital content including Matt Hatter games and 3D ‘multivision’ clips.
"The momentum behind Matt Hatter is phenomenal and this latest deal is testament to the strength of the property and its huge international appeal," said Natalie Llewellyn, head of international programming at Platinum Films. "We are delighted to be partnering with Disney Benelux and we are confident that the series will powerfully resonate with Disney audiences both on-air and online, just as it has done in other territories around the world."
Platinum has appointed License Connection to manage the L&M and promotional rights for the property. The licensing programme will be supported by promotional retail tie-ins and consumer marketing campaigns across the Benelux.
MD Daphne Kellerman added: "I am thrilled to be working with Platinum Films. Matt Hatter Chronicles is an exciting and groundbreaking boys’ franchise and the perfect addition to License Connection’s brand portfolio. Our aim is to establish Matt Hatter as the must-have boy’s brand in the Benelux."
