Produced by Stassen’s Brussels-based nWave, “The Queen’s Corgi” has been picked up by Bona Film Group for China, and by Apollo Films – the newly launched banner of former Gaumont and Studiocanal exec Francois Clerc – and TF1 Studio for theatrical and VOD/DVD distribution in France, respectively. The sale to TF1 Studio also covers Monaco, Andorra and French-speaking Africa.
“The Queen’s Corgi” is expected to be Stassen’s most creatively ambitious project to date, as well as one of Europe’s biggest animated features slated for 2019.
The feature, which will be delivered in the first quarter of next year, was written by Rob Sprackling and Johnny Smith, whose credits include “Gnomeo and Juliet.” Stassen is co-directing the film with Vincent Kesteloot (“Sammy 2”).
