Guru Studio has signed a co-development deal with Japan-based ADK Emotions to produce The Ora Chronicles (working title), a new animated action-adventure series for kids ages 6-11. 

The Ora Chronicles tells the story of five very different middle school girls whose shared destiny is to defeat a great evil that resides within the Earth’s core. 

Guru Studio will manage the international distribution of The Ora Chronicles, while ADK Emotions (Doraemon, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, Beyblade) will handle the Asia Pacific distribution, in addition to all merchandising and licensing rights.

Rachel Marcus, vice president of creative development at Guru Studio says, “We are very excited to be working with the incredible team at ADK Emotions who have a rich history of building successful brands that travel the globe.”

Guru continues to build its roster of original shows, which includes True and the Rainbow Kingdom, Pikwik Pack, Big Blue, and two-time Emmy Award-nominated preschool series Justin Time. Guru Studio also produces PAW Patrol in collaboration with Spin Master and Nick Jr., and Mattel’s Ever After High
