The latest broadcasters join Canal Plus’ Piwi+ (France), SVT (Sweden), YLE (Finland) and EBS (South Korea) in airing Super Wings.
“We are very proud to be bringing Super Wings to the Americas in 2015” said Jisoo Han, head of animation business division at CJ E&M.
“The huge interest already shown in the property, indicates that things are really starting to take off for our little air plane hero."
