After the successful release of our tv-series PETRONELLA APFELWITCH on prominent German tv stations KiKa and ZDF, lovely applewitch Petronella is turning to the magic of music. The original soundtrack to the series is now available on Spotify, Amazon and iTunes. To sing along anytime and anywhere!
And for even more Easter fun, our feature film RABBIT SCHOOL – GUARDIANS OF THE GOLDEN EGG will air for the first time on German broadcaster ARD. Right on time for the Easter bunny at 07:10 a.m.!
With one of the highest international box office results, THE ELFKINS ranked number 4 of all German productions sold abroad in 2020. This is not only another milestone for us, but also a success for German animated films which are gaining popularity worldwide.
We’ve also had a solid year on a rather difficult domestic market. Akkord Film’s THE ELFKINS and RAVEN THE LITTLE RASCAL – HUNT FOR THE LOST TREASURE both ranked among the top 15 German movies in 2020. With a market share of 6.4%, Akkord Film’s productions contributed to the success of German films at the German box office in 2020. THE ELFKINS also held up against Hollywood movies, ranking No. 23 among all films released in German cinemas in 2020.
The MFG film fund Baden-Württemberg awarded a sum of EUR 400,000 to our new series project RABBIT ACADEMY – THE SERIES at their first meeting in 2021. Packed with action and comedy, the new TV series (2D, 52×11 min) is based on our feature films THE RABBIT SCHOOL – GUARDIANS THE GOLDEN EGG (2017) and THE RABBIT SCHOOL – THE EGG FORCE (currently in production).
In collaboration with our co-producers SWR, NDR and KiKA as well as SERU Animation and 2 Minutes (France) we are excited to send the cheeky bunny Max and his big city buddies on adventurous missions in the magical forest boarding school. Production start is scheduled for 2022.
