Splash Entertainment, Dream Factory and Lionsgate Head North In 2019 With New Releases
2019 is the "Year of Norm!" On the heels of the original 2016 global theatrical film Norm of the North, a Dove Family-approved movie, which was released in more than 70 countries, are a duo of new feature-length CG productions starring the beloved polar bear and his friends. Splash Entertainment, together with Dream Factory
and Lionsgate, will showcase the latest Norm of the North features across all platforms.
The "Year of Norm" kicked off with delivery of the latest feature last month to Lionsgate. Norm of the North: King Sized Adventure will make its debut in late spring, and capping off the year this fall, will be Norm of the North: Family Vacation.
Like the original feature film, these two new releases are now "ice-skating" their way into markets around the globe, as Splash has brokered significant deals across all platforms. Agreements are now in place for Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Scandinavia for both Norm of the North: King Sized Adventure and Norm of the North: Family Vacation with additional global markets to be announced soon.
"Norm of the North continues to gain steam in territories all over the world," said Mevelyn J. Noriega, President of Distribution, Splash Entertainment. "More than just a series of movies, Norm is a full-fledged entertainment brand and we are delighted to share the hilarious and fun antics of the lovable polar bear and his pals with even more kids and families everywhere."
The adventures of Norm, a charming polar bear who has the unique ability to talk to humans, began in the original feature film, Norm of the North. In King Sized Adventure, Norm, the Arctic's new king, meets an archeologist named Jin and learns that a priceless Chinese artifact has been stolen by Jin's former partner, Dexter. With the help of his lemming friends,
Norm embarks on a journey to China to recover and return the treasure to its rightful
place. Norm's hijinks continue in Family Vacation. Norm struggles with juggling his duties as King of the Arctic and being an attentive father. But, when his crown is stolen three days before the Northern Lights Jubilee, Norm must follow the thief's trail as he whisks his unsuspecting family away on an adventure that takes them to the magical ice city of Harbin. Another Norm movie is currently in development.
