Chorion, SD Ent. partner for ‘Noddy’

52 episodes to be created with CGI

LONDON — U.K. rights group Chorion is partnering with L.A.-based animation studio SD Entertainment to produce “Make Way for Noddy,” a $15 million kids TV series.

The latest updating of “Noddy” — 52 episodes from three adaptations — will consist of 10 100-minute episodes made with CGI rather than stop-motion animation.

The idea is to reinvent for a new generation the character, created by Brit author Enid Blyton a half century ago.

Chorion managing director Nicholas James said he expected to produce additional series and added that Chorion was poised to acquire other properties. At present, the company also holds the rights to Agatha Christie’s work.

The old “Noddy” airs on PBS in the U.S., the BBC in the U.K. and in a number of other territories.
