While marquee animated features are being rerouted from theaters to streaming, one property is swimming against the current. A feature inspired by “Baby Shark,” the viral Youtube earworm, is coming to cinemas.
Pinkfong and Baby Shark’s Space Adventure is getting a limited theatrical run in North America, on October 9 and 10. The family film, which currently streams exclusively on Netflix, will follow the titular shark and pink fox on an interplanetary journey punctuated by songs.
The feature will be released by Smartstudy (whose kids’ educational brand Pinkfong produced the “Baby Shark” video) in partnership with Iconic Events Releasing. It will be accompanied by an exclusive short starring the same characters.
