China’s ‘Boonie Bears’ to Get U.S. Release (EXCLUSIVE)

Chinese animated film “Boonie Bears: Mystical Winter” is to get a release in the U.S. through Steven Paul’s SP Releasing.

SP Releasing has a 10-film per year distribution agreement with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and will give the movie a platform theatrical release.

The film is a movie spin off from one of the most successful Chinese TV cartoons of recent years. It scored over $47 million at the Chinese box office in 2015.

Featuring two bears who try to stop a logger from destroying their forest, the series debuted in 2012 and screened both on China Central Television and the iQIYI streaming platform. It currently runs to over 400 13-minute episodes. SP acquired the rights directly from producer Fantawild Animation.
