Update: Now with a Youtube video
Via Instagram, ZAG Entertainment’s Jeremy Zag announced that Ladybug a co-production between French animation Zagtoon and Japanese animation studio Toei Entertainment, will debut this fall on Nickelodeon.
Zag describes the series as the following:
Modern-day Paris, Marinette and Adrien are two high school kids with a difference: they are the chosen ones to save Paris from evil! They have been entrusted with an important mission – to capture akumas, creatures responsible for turning normal people into super-baddies.
When involved in such adventures, these two school kids become superheroes: Marinette transforms into Ladybug and Adrien becomes Cat Noir.
But Ladybug and Cat Noir do not know each other’s true identity. Marinette is unaware that, beneath the Cat Noir costume nestles Adrien, her secret crush. Similarly, Adrien doesn’t know that Ladybug is, in actual fact, just Marinette – one of the girls in his class.
What’s interesting is that Christina Vee, dropped the information via her Twitter:
If you don’t want to read too much into it, it’s simply a fan reporting it. However, if you want to read int it: Vee is a voice actor, knowing the fact that Nickelodeon tends do to animation work on the West Coast and Vee does work there, we may see her soon in it. With that said, it’s pure conjecture so just see it as the former.
Update: An unlisted video from Youtube user Thomas Astruc director and creator ofMiraculous Ladybug had a voice clip of the following Ladybug scene. Care to guess who’s voice acting in said clip? I’ll drop the demo after the video:
