DreamWorks produces ‘Rocky & Bullwinkle,’ ‘Kung Fu Panda’ toons for Amazon

Amazon has commissioned two original children’s animated series from DreamWorks Animation Television.

The studio is creating an all-new The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, which will be available to Amazon Prime subscribers in US, UK, Germany, India, and Japan from May 11.

Check out the official trailer here:

The second is Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny, which will be available in all of Prime’s territories later this year. This is the first time an original from DreamWorks will be offered to Prime subscribers worldwide.

Executive produced by Scott Fellows, the Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle is a 2D comedy about two goofball best friends — the world famous talking moose and flying squirrel who routinely find themselves thrust into harrowing situations but end up saving the day time and again. The new trailer shows off a riotous hand-drawn aesthetic seemingly designed to call back to the sensibilities of the 1950s originals.

On the other hand, Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny is an epic adventure series from Emmy Award-winning executive producers Mitch Watson, Elliott Owen and Lane Lueras.

Previously, DreamWorks had partnered with Amazon’s rival global streamer Netflix on original series.

Since 2013, DreamWorks has launched 17 series around the globe, garnering 17 Emmy Awards. DreamWorks was recently nominated for 23 2018 Daytime Creative Arts Emmys.
