Novel Ent. Teases Upcoming 'Horrid Henry' Projects As TV Series Celebrates 15th Anniversary

Horrid Henry is celebrating 15 "yucky" years on-air this year, and after 250 episodes across five series (seasons), multiple feature-length specials and dozens of podcast, the beloved British animated series shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon!

In an interview with Animation Magazine to celebrate Horrid Henry's 15th anniversary, Novel Entertainment Co-Founders Mike Watts, CEO, and Lucinda Whiteley, Creative Director revealed some of their upcoming plans for the property:

"[W]e’re currently finishing off a series of shorts which will together make up a brand new special," Watts revealed to Animation Magazine. "We’ve also just put two new animated Henry projects into development, there’s a new gaming app in production, and we’re launching the first of many e-books and about to recordour 100th audiobook."

Watts also took time to look back about some of the company's favourite reactions to Henry’s projects over the 15 years:

"Angelica Huston saying that she signed up to be Miss Battle-Axe in our movie (which was the U.K.’s first ever family release in 3D) because the script made her laugh out loud," said Watts, adding: "being the first British kids’ show on Netflix U.K., finding a new home at Nickelodeon, meeting the first night audience of the stage play and seeing Wayne and Coleen Rooney’s two boys both dressed as TV Henry for World Book Day; all were amazing, but mostly it’s the fantastic fans, who talk to us every day and tell us how much they love the show."
