Legend Quest (26 x 25’), which was created by leading Mexican studio Anima premiered successfully on Netflix in 2017 in 190 countries and was the first animated Netflix original series to be produced in Latin America. Under the agreement, CAKE will handle worldwide distribution excluding LatAm.  The title is available in 18 languages.

Based on the characters created by Ricardo Arnaiz and the very successful Las Leyendas film franchise created by Mexico’s Anima, Legend Quest is executive produced by Fernando de Fuentes and Jose C. Garcia de Letona of Anima, (Cleo & Cuquin and Here Comes The Grump). 

“We are delighted to be working with Anima once again and re-introducing this successful series to a wider international audience.  Legend Quest already has an established fanbase following its premiere on Netflix and with global adventures, mythical creatures and a colourful cast of fantastical characters, it has all the ingredients of a hit international show.”

Legend Quest (26 x 25’) follows 12-year old Leo, a reluctant hero who joins forces with a supernatural group of misfits when his hometown mysteriously vanishes into another dimension: Don Andrés, an eccentric yet amicable old knight; the unflappable Teodora, Alebrije, a shape-shifting, mythological creature; and Finado and Moribunda, two lively, ever charming sugar candy skulls. Together, this intrepid group travel across the globe on a magical ship across time to the most famous and mystical places on Earth to defend the world against evil forces in this Mexican folklore inspired fantasy adventure comedy series. 

“Legend Quest is a unique comedy series that explores mythical legends around the world with a thrilling twist. We are excited to work with CAKE again and are confident they will help us reach new audiences all over the world which will surely enjoy it,”
