The entertainment division of Hasbro is gearing up for a special delivery.

eOne, alongside Creative Conspiracy and Frogbox, has been working on Ninja Express, a new animated series from creator Kim Claeys. The series about a special delivery service run by super-powered ninjas has been in development for nearly eight years, originally as 3 Little Ninjas Delivery Service. Now, Ninja Express is set to entertain kids ages 6-11 with a mix of 2D and 3D animated comedy.

“We are so proud to share Ninja Express with kids around the world,” says Olivier Dumont, president of eOne’s family brands division. “The show balances the ultimate mix of over-the-top humor with real heart and we are confident that people will fall in love with our three colorful ninjas — Aka, Kiro, and Konpeki. The teams at Creative Conspiracy and Frogbox truly created something special with this show.”

The global rollout for Ninja Express begins July 1 with debuts on WarnerMedia’s Boomerang (EMEA, APAC, LATAM) and Ketnet (Belgium) 1. The series hits CBBC (UK) on July 3, with Gulli (France), Huace (China), and other territories set to follow in the months ahead.

With Hasbro involved, you can be sure that if Ninja Express connects with audiences, expect a toy line to emerge down the line.
