The French animation company Zagtoon began streaming a promotional video for Ladybug, its co-production with Japan's Toei Animation, on August 26:
The comedy action series will be set in Paris and will follow the adventures of a justice-seeking teenage girl named Marinette who has super powers. Zagtoon posted the following story description:
Marinette Cheng, a shy high-school student, has inherited some magical ladybug-shaped earrings. The ornaments grant the power of Luck to whoever wears them. Yet there is one condition : they have to be worn in an altruistic manner, or else, beware of the consequences!
Whenever the situation needs it, Marinette turns into LADYBUG, the guardian angel.
Variety reported in June that the 26-episode series, then known as Miraculous, has a budget of US$11.2 million and has a "colorful manga style." Aton Soumache's Method Animation (The Little Prince) studio is also co-producing the series.
Thanks to Vito Plahuta for the news tip.
