‘Oggy’ Movie Pre-Sells to Several Territories

Films Distribution inks deals ahead of world preem

ANNECY — “Oggy and the Cockroaches: The Movie,” the bigscreen adaptation of the international hit toon franchise, has pre-sold to a raft of territories in the run up to its world preem at Annecy Intl. Animation Film Festival.

Repped by Nicolas Brigaud-Robert at Films Distribution, “Oggy” has found a home in the Mideast (Italia Film), Poland (Kino Swiat), Czech Republic (Hollywood Classic), South Korea (Green Narae Media), Israel (Shoval), Thailand (LH Moviefusion), Russia CIS (Premium Film) and the Baltic states (ACNE).

“Oggy” is produced by well-established producer Marc du Pontavice at Paris-based Xilam. Penned and directed by Oliver Jean-Marie, the 15-year-old Tex-Avery inspired slapstick comedy skein centers on a lazy but friendly cat who is being tormented by three mad cockroaches.

Comprising more than 270 episodes, the series still airs in 150 countries, including in the U.S. and South America (on Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and Disney Channel), as well as in Europe and Asia.

The spinoff feature has Oggy travel through three different time periods — including prehistoric and medieval ages, where he must confront evil-minded cockroaches to become heir to the throne.

“Oggy” will unspool at Annecy, one of the world’s top animation film festivals, and is set for a French theatrical release on Aug. 7. Bac Films has French distribution rights. “We’re in discussions with various European distributors who are looking forward to discovering ‘Oggy’ in Annecy. The screening will be key in testing their appetite,” said Brigaud-Robert. “Annecy is an important market for this film because it brings together theatrical and TV buyers.”
