Superprod Animation announced that Heroic Football (26×22), its newest animated series, will debut at Cartoon Forum 2023 in Toulouse on September 20. Set in a world where soccer and magic reign supreme, the show targets kids ages eight and up.
Superprod Group founders Jérémie Fajner and Clément Clavet explained, “Each project we undertake is a chance to delve into fresh realms. With Heroic Football, we aim at captivating a more mature audience, fusing soccer’s exhilaration with the enchantment of storytelling, molding this property into a true saga.”
In the series, on Pangéa, a land of legends populated by creatures borrowed from the “Heroic Fantasy” realm and infused with magical runes, soccer isn’t just a sport; it’s the world’s only salvation. An unlikely team of five players brought together against all odds embark on a covert mission: to win Heroic Football matches and secure the enigmatic Dark Rune before time runs out.
Written by Guillaume Mautalent (Miraculous Ladybug, Galactik Football, and The Mysterious Cities of Gold) and co-created with Sébastien Oursel, the show is directed by Antoine Charreyron (Batwheels, The Prodigies, Galactik Football). The series’ artistic vision is realized by Florent Auguy (Spiderman – Into the Spider-Verse).
The Heroic Football pilot is created on the new FLOW pipeline, powered by Pixar’s USD technology and developed by the Superprod Animation team.
