MGA Entertainment, MGA Studios and Cake sign agreement for distribution of kids’ series ‘Armorsaurs’

Toy and entertainment company MGA Entertainment (MGA), its subsidiary MGA Studios and London-based production and distribution company Cake have signed a multi-year agreement for distribution of a new video series from MGA Studios, Armorsaurs.

Armorsaurs tells the story of a group of armoured dinosaurs with mechanical powers and their trained pilots who fight extraterrestrial invaders set on destroying Earth. The first season will consist of 13 half-hour episodes and showcase exciting CGI animation and live action/VFX with a storyline to appeal to a global audience. The new Armorsaurs series is projected to premiere globally in 2025.

The series is a remake of the hit 2021 South Korean television show Armored Saurus originally developed by Daewon Media that mixes visual effects (VFX) and live action. Cake will handle all media distribution rights globally outside of South Korea, Japan, China and France. MGA Entertainment and Daewon Media announced a multi-year agreement for the development, production, and distribution of their content in August 2022.

“MGA is excited to partner with Ed and his team at Cake for distribution of our new series around the world,” said MGA Entertainment chief content officer Anne Parducci. “The Cake team had an immediate connection with the Armorsaurs concept, and we look forward to working together to bring the series to a global audience.”

“We are eager to bring this new action-packed series to kids around the world beginning in 2025 and fully expect the new version to be a huge hit globally as when the original premiered in South Korea,” said Cake CEO Ed Galton.

“We are pleased that more audiences around the world will be able to enjoy the newly re-imagined Armorsaurs series based on our hit show Armored Saurus,” said Daewon Media CEO Dong-Hoon Jung. “The expertise of these three companies coming together will make the new series a huge success globally.”
