The cartoon that’s taken the world by storm, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir has made its triumphant debut on Disney Channel, and there’s plenty more of it to follow. More within…
A few years ago, Jeremy Zag and his Tales, Tech, and Toy company, The ZAG Company, along with Thomas Astruc and Nathanaël Bronn, began developing a cartoon series that featured two teenagers in Paris that had the ability to transform into larger-than-life superheroes, in order to save their city. It was called Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir, and throughout the first two seasons, it became an international phenomenon, airing all across Europe and even in parts of Asia.
Now, it’s time for the top rated Disney Europe show to make its way across the pond and onto the U.S. Disney Channel. That’s because Disney has officially claimed the distribution rights for Season 1 and Season 2 of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir and have already begun airing episodes.
“After 10 years of intense work with all of our teams, and partners who have dedicated their lives to this labor of love for Miraculous, there is nothing more rewarding than to have the opportunity and privilege to see our Ladybug landing on Disney in America. From the bottom of my heart I want to thank every Disney EMEA team for their creative support and Disney USA for their trust and kindness for this new chapter of Miraculous,” said Jeremy Zag.
If you’re unfamiliar with Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir, the story “Follows the adventures of two seemingly typical teens with secret identities, Marinette and Adrien, who magically transform into superheroes, Ladybug and Cat Noir. As secret superheroes, Ladybug and Cat Noir are partners in the action. But in the daytime, Marinette is just a normal girl, living a normal life. Cat Noir will do anything to support and impress Ladybug, but does not know this is Marinette from his class. Marinette, the regular girl, in turn dreams of Adrien and simply gets little response. When evil threatens Paris, their beloved City of Lights, can they beat the unexpected villains?”
