ON kids & family (Mediawan Animation) and its labels Method Animation, Onyx, ON Animation Studios, and The Magical Society by Joann Sfar, produce audiovisual content on an international scale, developing emblematic brands with strong franchises. Relying on its expertise in the production of animated series and on its catalogue of characters known around the world (“Miraculous Ladybug,” “The Little Prince,” “Robin Hood,” “Peter Pan,” “Tall Tales,” “Iron Man”), ON kids & family successfully entered the feature-length animation business with “The Little Prince” (2015), “Tall Tales” (2017) or “Playmobil” (2019) and is now preparing “Little Vampire,” directed by Joann Sfar, and the “Miraculous” movie, co-produced with its historical partner ZAGTOON.
Additionally, the brands of ON kids & family, whether developed in-house or with copyright and trademark owners, generate significant revenue from licensing and merchandising. ON kids & family has put this aspect at the heart of its strategy by working with market-leading partners and toy manufacturers (e.g. Playmobil, Bandai, Playmates, and Hape Toys) far upstream from obtaining financing for its projects, as well as by establishing other strong partnerships.
The Group capitalizes on a powerful portfolio of pre-existing brands from foundational cultural assets (“The Little Prince,” “Playmobil,” “Robin Hood,” “Peter Pan,” “Tall Tales,” “Le Petit Nicolas,” “Chaplin,” “Iron Man”), as well as on innovative original creations with very strong potential for international distribution, demonstrating unique expertise (“Miraculous Ladybug,” “Zak Storm,” “Seven & Me,” etc.).
