Singapore’s Mediacorp is launching Lil Wild, an original 3D animation kids series featuring an unlikely crew of “tweenage” animals that can be found in the Singapore Zoo! Targeting those viewers ages four and up, this comedy-adventure series is Singapore’s first locally-produced animal-based animation, and looks to offer lively edutainment for young audiences through the exciting stories of the animal characters and the showcase of interesting wildlife fun facts peppered throughout the show.
Conceptualised and created by Mediacorp in collaboration with integrated media entertainment and creative services company Infinite Studios, the main protagonists of Lil Wild are five animal characters with distinct personalities who are best friends living together in a zoo. In this 16-parter series, they will go on big adventures and in the process, lean to overcome various challenges life throws their way.
Sapna Angural, Head, English Audience, Mediacorp said: “As Singapore’s largest content creator, we are very excited to present our latest edutainment animation series Lil Wild as part of Mediacorp’s range of quality, engaging content for our audiences. Inspired by animals found in our Singapore Zoo and specially developed for our younger fans, the show will showcase our lovable animal protagonists going on wild adventures while dealing with real-life issues faced by tweenagers in Singapore today. We hope our viewers enjoy this entertaining series as much as we did creating it, and through it, also gain new knowledge of our wildlife and pick up wholesome life lessons.”
In time to come, fans can also anticipate a year-end musical special of the show featuring local talents and tunes, print collectibles like children’s books on wildlife fun facts, colouring and sticker albums, as well as dubbed versions of the show in other languages.
