Ubisoft is operating on Television adaptations of its catalogue of franchises, such as a Rabbids unique, Hungry Shark, Watch Dogs, and Blood Dragon (by means of The Hollywood Reporter).
Ubisoft has a film and tv division that is making and establishing animated series inspired by its collection of video game franchises. ‘Every show has a distinct target that it is aiming at and a distinct format,’ Ubisoft film and tv managing director Helene Juguet told The Hollywood Reporter. So, for the tiny youngsters and for households, there will be a Rabbids Invasion unique set on the red planet to celebrate 4 seasons of the Rabbids show.
Rayman will be transformed into a comedy-adventure series, and the mobile game Hungry Shark will obtain the adaptation titled Hungry Shark Squad. Ubisoft’s film and tv division has an ‘incubator’ group, which consists of a handful of creatives who create and transform its IP to other media. ‘One of the incubator’s essential projects is to translate the essence of video games,’ explained Juguet. ‘Our target is to translate that into an revolutionary visual and engaging storytelling in animation.’
Watch Dogs and Far Cry 3’s Blood Dragon will be scaled down to the compact screen, but alternatively of mature themes for a mature audience, these will be pitched to teenagers. Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Vibe will appreciate the influence of Netflix’s Castlevania producer Adi Shankar who has partnered with Ubisoft’s in-property studio.
‘Adi is such a excellent fan of video games. We share the very same culture and references,’ Juguet stated. ‘It’s been excellent to give him the freedom to do some thing incredibly fresh and bold with our characters.’ Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Vibe will in truth be the initial constructing block of the Ubisoft multiverse, in which its other animated series will hyperlink and intermingle a lot like the Marvel cinematic universe.
And ultimately, Ubisoft revealed that it is presently immersed in the improvement of an animated sketch comedy about video game culture. Offered that it is a French studio and Valve not too long ago attempted to wiggle about loot box regulations by adding an X-ray scanner to CS:GO crates, I count on the American corporation will be topic to a tiny banter.
