Animation veterans Jay Ahn and Chris Henderson are launching Astro-Nomical Entertainment with “Mean Margaret” as its first project.

The company is touting itself as a full-service development and production company making animated family films. Backed by China-based Characterplan, Astro-Nomical Entertainment is preparing to commence production on “Mean Margaret” and is in talks with “Mulan” director Barry Cook to helm.

Based in Burbank, Astro-Nomical is aiming at mid-budget animated films and franchises, generating ongoing revenue streams across multiple media platforms. It will cater to both the domestic and  international markets, with a particular strategic focus on China.

Kevin Niu is on board as the company’s business adviser and industry expert David Alper will also serve as an adviser.

Mean Margaret,” based on the children’s book by Tor Seidler, centers on a cranky toddler from a family of nine who is taken in by two woodchucks and raised as their own. »
