Shout! Factory to Release "Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir" on Home Video in North America

North American video distributor Shout! Factory announced the super news on Monday that it has entered a distribution agreement with entertainment group Zag to release Zag's Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir series in the United States and Canada, Anime News Network reports! The rights include DVD, Blu-ray, and select digital outlets. Shout! Factory plans to begin releasing the series in 2016.

The 3D CG Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir series debuted in South Korea in September 2015, before premiering in the United States on Nickelodeon on December 6. The series is also airing in France and Australia, and will premiere in Canada, New Zealand, EMEA, Latin America, Italy, Brazil, Belgium, Switzerland, and Lithuania.

The 26-episode series follows two junior high students, Marinette and Adrien, chosen to save Paris from the evil doings of a mysterious super-villain. The storylines and adventures are rich with friends, family, fun, secret identity, transformation, villains, fashion, creativity and more, all within the spectacular backdrop of Paris.

As secret identity superheroes Ladybug and Cat Noir, Marinette and Adrien must balance the crazy antics of normal teen life while stopping weekly baddies deployed by Hawk Moth to steal their powers and take over the world. With the help of their magical kwami, Tikki and Plagg, and miraculous jewels, the duo transform into their alter egos, Ladybug and Cat Noir, and are granted powers of speed, strength, agility and a clear mind.

The series is a co-production between Zag, Method Animation, Toei Animation, and SamG, with the participation of TF1, Disney Channel EMEA, SK Broadband, and AB droits audiovisuels.

Zag Entertainment, Toei Animation, and Method Animation co-produced a 2D-animated promotional video for the project announcement before relaunching it as a CG-animated series. Zag and Toei Animation are co-producing a 2D-animated OVA for the series, though it will include Cat Noir's design from the 3D CG-animated series, not the older design used in the promotional video.

Bandai America will unveil its brand-new Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir toy line at the 2016 North American International Toy Fair.

Targeted to girls ages 4-8, the Miraculous toy line will feature a robust assortment of toys centered on aspirational action play, transformation and friendship, including action dolls for girls, transformational role play, plush pets and fashion dolls, guaranteed to bring the Miraculouys Ladybug brand to life. The range is set to launch this Fall/Autumn at mass and specialty retailers across the world.

Brand-new episodes of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir premiere every Sunday at 12:00pm ET/PT on Nick USA.
