Syberia animated series announced


Microids and production studio What The Prod have announced they’re producing a Syberia animated series.

The new animated series, based on the saga created by Benoit Sokal and later adapted to video games, is being made to ensure the adaptation “meets the legitimate expectations of the series’ fans” as well as fans of animated TV shows in general.

Further details weren’t confirmed but it’s worth noting What The Prod has several other projects currently on their plate like Sylvain Chomet’s (Director of “The Triplets of Belleville”) full-length feature film, a Biopic about Marcel Pagnol’s life: “The magnificent life of Marcel Pagnol”.

Here’s some comments from key staff from both companies:

Elliot Grassiano, Founder and COO of Microids, shares his enthusiasm regarding this promising partnership: “It’s a real pleasure to see Syberia coming to life in an animated format. We are delighted to partner up with What The Prod to offer Syberia’s fans a fantastic visual experience, capturing the soul of this iconic franchise to perfection.  This series will be a new opportunity for players and new spectators to discover or re-discover Syberia’s fascinating world.”

Martine Sokal and her children Hugo & Jules, depository of Benoit Sokal’s creative heritage, also share their support and pride regarding this adaptation. “My husband would have been honored to witness his work being developed as an animated series. With Syberia, he created a magical and out of time world and I am glad it will reach a new audience with this new adaptation.”

Ashargin Poiré, What The Prod Founder and President, comments “20 years after the release of the first episode of Syberia, our ambition is to craft an animated series inspired by the game’s incredible universe, speaking to the fans as well as new comers thanks to a modern writing style paying tribute to these very best dystopian and uchronic masterpieces. The art direction, the type and quality of animation will guarantee a mind-blowing experience halfway between reality and fantasy.”
