Paris, 16TH February 2015. At the occasion of Kidscreen, Paris-based Cyber Group Studios is pleased to add to its animation catalogue the action comedy packed series ‘G-Fighters’ (26x22’) from Korean CJ E&M Corporation for Worldwide distribution.
The new full 3D series is a superhero action comedy targeting kids aged six to ten. All begins when Lynn, an ordinary 13 year-old boy, finds a strange cat on his way home. Mistaking a powerful robotic Bolt Cat belonging to the super villain Gala-Gahs for a stray cat, he brings it home and discovers that they can merge into a cat-boy speedy superhero. As Lynn struggles to take stock of his new powers with his feline companion, he realizes there are other powerful kids like him. They join forces and take the noble vow to save the city from the alien villains.
Launched on EBS in Korea just recently, a top five hit for the channel already will premiere internationally at MIPCOM this Fall for immediate international release.
