Giant Green Dragon Comes to Toronto

April 9, 2004 at 2:36 pm by Tookish  - 

Greetings!

A little article I found:

Giant green dragon comes to T.O.

Weta Workshop, the New Zealand-based special effects company that gained global fame for its work on the Lord of the Rings film trilogy, has chosen the Toronto-based Nelvana animation house to collaborate on the new animated series Jane and the Dragon.

The 26 half -hour episodes are based on the book series by Martin Baynton about a 13-year-old girl in medieval times who has a giant green dragon in her backyard. The series is targeted at the six to 11 year-old audience.

“This partnership promises to be a great experience for Nelvana’s CGI studio,” says Scott Dyer, executive vice-president of production and development at the Corus Entertainment-owned Nelvana. “We’re looking forward to working with the talented Weta team.”

Weta Workshop founder Richard Taylor says their first venture into children’s television animation will blend classic animation design and modern computerized motion-capture technology.

“We have enjoyed a wonderful opportunity to create a fantastical world around the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien,” Taylor says. “It is therefore a great treat to be able to create our own world for Jane and her Dragon.”

Thanks,
