Clients mainly know the French animation company from its own region because it interacted more with this type of client. However, it expanded its horizons, reaching other countries and developing work with renowned companies such as Disney with the series Chip ‘n Dale: Park Life, Warner Bros. and the new Tom and Jerry saga; Hurry Hurry, Tom and Jerry and Netflix with some children’s programs such as Oggy Oggy.
Details of Twilight of the Gods
Twilight of the Gods is a series based on Norse mythology with characters like Odin and his mischievous son Loki. The plot is unclear if it will be a showdown between the abovementioned gods. Another option is the confrontation against the ice giants, as we saw in Netflix’s Ragnarok saga.
The series currently has no premiere date on the streaming platform. However, several signs could indicate that it would be anime-style or like Netflix’s Blood of Zeus production. However, we do not rule out a surprise by Snyder and Xilam Animation studio that could give it a different touch.
As for the production team, we have that it is led by Snyder, who serves as producer and director in at least 2 chapters. It has a top cast integrated by Paterson Joseph as Loki, John Noble playing Odin and Kristopher Hivju, the Game of Thrones actor portraying Andvari.
Snyder has several projects at Netflix, which makes sense given his departure from the DC comic book world. These include Rebel Moon, which will have its own video game version.
