Sammy is a turtle, created and animated by Ben Stassens, who has traveled the world and brought together millions of young viewers … as well as their parents. The first feature film became a spectacular international success, inciting the creators to make a sequel. The second film told the story of the adventures of Ella, Sammy’s granddaughter, and her friend Rocky.
These two characters are now the heroes of their own series, currently being developed and named Sammy & Co, humoristic chronicles of the underwater life these two young, daring and often unhandy explorers lead. Of course, grandfather Sammy will be there as chief of the village, always ready to give wise advice.
In 52 episodes, each 13 minutes long and in 3D, we will discover that the underwater life is not so different from life on earth: it is full of turmoil! Little fish want to be big, big fish eat smaller ones, some dream of adventure, others want to live a peaceful life … but nothing ever happens as planned!
Waooh, who stunned everyone with their work on the decors for Le Magasin de Suicides, will be in charge of all storyboards, while Genval les Dames is on the team for the sound post-production. The series is scheduled to be broadcast on television in April 2014.
