Studio 100 Media has launched a new film division under the banner Studio 100 Film, and secured its first theatrical film for international distribution, Maya the Bee–Movie.
The new division formalizes Studio 100’s strategic plans to expand into the movie business domestically and internationally.
“Following on from the recent worldwide success of the new animated TV series ‘Maya the Bee,’ we are thrilled to announce the production of the first-ever stereoscopic 3D Maya the Bee movie for theatrical release,” says Patrick Elmendorff, managing director, Studio 100 Media. “The launch of our film division is a logical step in the company’s strategy to build and strengthen its own brands. Studio 100 Film is already in the process of securing several pre-sales for Maya the Bee–Movie, and we look forward to offering this delightful movie, other great content and high-quality feature films to worldwide viewers now and in years to come.”
The new subsidiary is presenting Maya the Bee–Movie to international buyers at the
Cannes Film Festival and has already secured distribution partners for German-speaking territories, as well as Poland and Ex-Yugoslavia.
The movie will be released in German cinemas in September 2014.
