CGI Adaptation Zorro The Chronicles
Exclusive Premiere At MIPJunior

Zorro The Chronicles - Trailer
MIPJunior today showcases today the World Premiere TV Screening of Zorro the Chronicles, an action comedy series for kids and families. This latest visual portrayal of the masked superhero's story is the first CGI adaptation of the adventures of Zorro created in 1919 by pulp master Johnston McCulley. The series benefits from Cyber Group Studios' newly-developed technology in rendering, lighting and asset building, which gives the show feature-quality visuals and a realistic feel. Pierre Sissmann, President, Cyber Group Studios (CGS): "It is a great creative responsibility to produce a new Zorro series, as Zorro is such a famous character that talks to generations worldwide. I am thrilled that both France Televisions and RAI have embarked very early on this project, I want to thank them, as well as Zorro Productions International, for their trust, support and advice all along the production."
Zorro The Chronicles
Zorro the Chronicles is produced by Cyber Group Studios in association with Zorro Productions, in collaboration with Blue Spirit Studios and the participation of France Televisions and RAI. The series is distributed worldwide by Cyber Group Studios. Tiphaine de Raguenel, Head of Youth Programs for France Télévisions, said: "We are very proud to offer to a new generation of kids this 3D animated version of the exciting, iconic character, Zorro. It's a pleasure, ever renewed, to follow the adventures of the most famous caped hero, motivated by his unstinting love of justice and freedom, defeating his enemies without using violence but rather by making them become a laughing stock! The brilliant work of Cyber Group Studios production, the originality of the stories and the quality of the animation will captivate both families and children who will undoubtedly appreciate seeing this revisited and modernized version of a loved classic on France 3."

RAI Fiction's Luca Milano added: "Zorro is a popular character, but it is especially the brilliant concept and the quality of the scripts that made us support the series since the beginning. Zorro the Chronicles is a modern and contemporary series, and we are eager to show it on RAI's channels."

Laurine Garaude, director of Reed MIDEM's Television Division, said: "Once again the MIPJunior World Premiere TV Screening welcomes a truly iconic series representing animation television production at its very best. The presence of the acclaimed Zorro the Chronicles creators illustrates that MIPJunior is a true launch pad for major series, with global reach."

Zorro the Chronicles (26×22') series is directed by Olivier Lelardoux, Cyber Group Studios Vice-President, from an original bible by Pierre Sissmann and Annabelle Perrichon, and original graphic designs by Christophe Rendu and Georges Bouchelaghem.

The World Premiere TV Screening of Zorro the Chronicles take place today Saturday 3 October late afternoon, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel Martinez.
