Celebrating 19th year in business as the leading animation studio in Latin America and recognized as a global player in the animation industry specializing in children’s programming, Ánima, has reached an agreement, in association with Videocine, with The Walt Disney Company Latin America for the acquisition of the distribution rights in Disney+ in Latin America to Anima’s horror-comedy movies "Las Leyendas" films.
The films includes: "La Leyenda de la Llorona" ("The Legend of Llorona", 1x75’), "La Leyenda de las Momias" ("The Legend of the Mummies",1x84’), "La Leyenda del Chupacabras" ("The Legend of Chupacabras", 1x82’), and "La Leyenda del Charro Negro" ("The Legend of Charro Negro", 1x85’).
“Since the initial launch with the first film in 2007, 'Las Leyendas' films continue to be ranked as some of the top-grossing movies of all time in Mexico achieving tremendous box-office and audience success with each film more successful than the previous one,” commented José C. García de Letona, COO. “With an ever-growing loyal fan base and storylines that include creatures and ghosts, I have no doubt these titles will be very appealing for Disney+ audience in Latin America,” added Fernando De Fuentes Sainz, CEO.
"Las Leyendas" titles follow the adventures of Leo San Juan, a heroic preteen boy who can communicate with legendary creatures and ghosts, along with his team of monster-battling friends who aid him in uncovering the mysteries behind these unruly beings. While confronting their supernatural forces of evil, Leo is often compassionate, sometimes taking pity on the creatures he must stop. Yet, in spite of his naturally caring, he and his friends embark on mysterious adventures as they try to save the world from evil.
