An international animation giant is breaking into the U.S. soon.

Founded by Jeremy Zag and Saban Entertainment co-founder Jacqueline Tordjman, Zag is an entertainment firm based in France that has expanded into a global enterprise with offices in Paris, Brussels, Seoul, Tokyo and Beverly Hills since its establishment in 2009. Its TV animation division Zagtoon specializes in CGI animated television programming for kids that has already reached over 150 markets around the world, while Zag Animation Studios is developing feature film projects both animated and a mixture of animation with live action. Now with a brand new studio opening in Glendale, California this summer and a presence at the 2014 Licensing Expo in Las Vegas this past week, Zag has set its sights on North America.


This is Zagtoon's biggest property. Ladybug follows the story of Marinette and Adrien, Parisian junior high school students with a big secret - they're superheroes! Using magical powers, they transform into the bickering duo Ladybug and Cat Noir. But neither knows the other's true identity, so Marinette has no idea that her school crush, Adrien, is Cat Noir. And Cat Noir has no idea that his crush, Ladybug, is really Marinette! They have been chosen to save Paris from the mysterious evil villain Hawk Moth who wants their magical powers for himself. Marinette has to juggle her two identities: saving Paris as Ladybug and winning Adrien's heart as Marinette.


As a boy, Professor Richenbach was haunted by many evil ghosts. He swore to one day find a way to defeat them. Many years later, he is a science teacher at Central High School. He has finally developed a technology that enables humans to fight and capture ghosts! He secretly recruits three students Andy, Sam, and Nathalie. They form a team tasked with hunting down and capturing the ghosts that terrorize the city. Operating from the secret underground laboratory built by the Professor, they are the city's only line of paranormal defense. They are GHOSTFORCE!


Superstar looks to be a music-oriented children's series in the vein of Josie and the Pussycats and Jem and the Holograms, or perhaps an analogue to Japan's Love Live! School Idol Project. According to its page on Zagtoon's official website, Superstar takes place at the Hollywood School of the Arts, where young people gather from all over to study music, singing, dancing and acting. They aren't just there to further their craft though, they're also competing for "a spot in a worldwide concert to achieve ultimate fame". Zagtoon identifies Superstar as having one "season" of 104 7-minute episodes, as well as 10 webisodes and a single "Japanese anime OVA."
