According to Deadline, which announced the company’s new streaming division, Fairyon is the first series produced by Zag Stream, a unit dedicated to advancing the company’s straight-to-streaming output and headed by senior vp of tv content Maria Doolan. It joins Miraculous and Ghostforce under the studio’s Zag Heroes banner.
Fairyon is described as a reimagining of some of the most famous fairy tale characters from around the world, but with a superhero twist. The series will follow Rapunzel and her colleagues Little Red Riding Hood, Aladdin, Gretel, Cinderella, and Jack (presumably of beanstalk fame) as they fight to stop a mysterious knight from springing a group of terrible villains from a magical mirror in which they’re imprisoned.
The Fairyon creative team includes Sebastien Thibaudeau, head writer of Miraculous; Julien de Carvalho, modeler on Ghostforce; and Miraculous creator Jeremy Zag, who is producing.
