Animation studio Ferly along with Star Stable Entertainment, global cross-channel entertainment company, and creator of the popular adventure game "Star Stable Online", have unveiled their co-production and development partnership on animated short-form series "Mistfall" (10x5min).
Written by Emmy Award-winning writer and showrunner Alice Prodanou ("Hotel Transylvania", "Inspector Gadget", "6teen", and "My Babysitter’s a Vampire"), the series introduces a new heroine, Skye Rowan, to the "Mistfall" universe.
Laura Nevanlinna, CEO of Ferly says “The deep lore and expansive universe of 'Mistfall' mean there is huge scope for making wonderful stories and entirely new worlds for players of the game to immerse themselves in, as well as new fans. Star Stable Entertainment has nurtured an incredibly engaged audience of young people, a notoriously difficult demographic to capture the attention of. The room for further brand extensions including a future long-form series to build an even wider audience and serve the loyal fan base with more of what they love makes this a brilliant enterprise to partner on.”
“Skye’s adventures in 'Mistfall' fill a void in animated content that appeals to today’s multi-dimensional tween and teen girl,” said Taina Malén, Star Stable Entertainment’s Chief Business Development Officer. “Along with the animation and licensing expertise of the team at Ferly and the writing prowess of Prodanou – 'Mistfall' will deliver a series that young people will want to watch again and again.”
FROM A POPULAR GAME TO A SCRIPTED SERIES
Debuting on YouTube in December 2020 the short form series sees the Mistfall brand extend from its origins as a popular online game into a scripted online series. Featuring all-new storylines, Mistfall’s narrative and characters run parallel to those in the original game.
In addition to series production and development, Star Stable Entertainment has partnered with Ferly for all licensing and branding. This first "Mistfall" series will lead to further scripted content in the franchise, including a long-form series which is also currently in development. Whilst focusing on engaging Star Stable Online’s millions of loyal fans, the series gives a new way to interact with the brand whilst also attracting new audiences to the iconic world of "Mistfall".
