Mattel and Nickelodeon Tuesday announced plans to produce an animated series and live-action television movie musical featuring characters from the “Monster High” toy line introduced in 2010.
The series, which will follow characters Clawdeen Wolf, Draculaura and Frankie Stein as they navigate high school at Monster High, and the movie are both scheduled to premiere next year and be available globally across Nickelodeon platforms.
“`Monster High’s’ strong message of inclusivity is more relevant than ever,” said Fred Soulie, general manager of Mattel Television. “Nickelodeon shares our passion for the brand and its purpose having worked on the franchise when it first launched more than a decade ago. They are the ideal partners to bring these beloved characters and their stories to life through episodic television and the live-action television movie.”
Adam Bonnet, executive producer of Mattel Television, said: “This property has always resonated deeply with fans, and our reimagination of the franchise will focus on addressing important themes of identity and empowerment for kids today.”
