Shout! Factory and Zag Strike Deal for ‘Miraculous’

Shout! Factory and multimedia kids and family entertainment company AG have entered a strategic distribution partnership for CG-animated action-comedy series Miraculous Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir to home audiences in the U.S. and Canada. 

The multi-year deal gives Shout! exclusive U.S. rights for DVD and Blu-ray and select digital rights in Canada for all 26 episodes. A strategic rollout is planned for this year through Shout! Factory Kids. 

Zag Heroez Miraculous Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir is a co-production of ZAG, Method Animation, Disney Channel EMEA, Toei Animation, SamG Animation, SK Broadband, PGS HK Limited and AB International Distribution. The show follows the adventures of charismatic 13-year-old Marinette, who magically transforms into the superhero Ladybug to save the day using her super powers, mysterious lucky charms and the unique power of “creation.” Accompanied by her magical pet Tikki, Marinette must balance hero work with her everyday life — like her relationship with her crush, Aidan, who unknown to Marinette is her superhero sidekick, Cat Noir. 

Miraculous currently airs on Nickelodeon (US), TF1 (France), ABC (Australia), EBS (Korea) and will soon debut on Disney Channel (EMEA, Latin America), Super! (Italy), Tele-Quebec, Gloob (Brazil), TVNZ (New Zealand), Proximus TV (Belgium), RTS (Switzerland) and LRT (Lithuania).
