London. 22 September 2011. Writer-led indie Adastra Creative and the literary estate of world-renowned author, Roald Dahl, have joined forces to produce the first ever animated television series based on a Roald Dahl title.
Developed from the best-selling children’s book The Enormous Crocodile, the television series will be faithful to Roald Dahl’s unique style of storytelling and the distinctive illustrations of his principal illustrator, Quentin Blake. Brand new stories will chart the further adventures of the hopeless Enormous Crocodile whose “secret plans and clever tricks” are humorously thwarted by the animals in the jungle – Humpy Rumpy, Mugglewump, Trunky and the Roly Poly Bird.
Adastra will develop and produce the series — 52 x 11 minutes — for the literary estate.
