Produced by Ellipse Animation and Belvision, "Belfort & Lupin" follows the hilarious adventures of a dog and a wolf duo and their exotic animal friends at a 17th-century Royal Court.

As one of Ellipse Animation's first original productions, "Belfort & Lupin" represents a major milestone for the company. Utilizing a 3D rendered 2D animation technique, the series pledges to offer dynamic and vivid visuals, upholding the standards of Ellipse's top-tier production, renowned for its animation work on shows like "The Smurfs."
