Ryan’s World continues to expand well beyond the realm of YouTube.
Sunlight Entertainment and pocket.watch teamed up with Amazon Kids+ for a new original special, Super Spy Ryan. The live-action/animated hybrid will debut Nov. 27 on Amazon Kids+ in the U.S., Canada, and the UK. Families in Germany and Japan can enjoy the special beginning next month.
“The appetite for great kids and family entertainment continues to build momentum, as evidenced by the demand we’ve seen on a global scale around our franchises featuring YouTube creators like Ryan,” says Chris Williams, founder and CEO of pocket.watch. “We’re focused now, more than ever before, on finding the best partners to bring these beloved stars to kids and families amid these challenging times.”
Super Spy Ryan posits a story in which Ryan is transported into an animated virtual reality world where he and his friends must become the ultimate super spies. Their mission is to recover the precious Golden Console from the clutches of a new character to the Ryan’s World universe: a nefarious hamster named The Packrat, following a glitch in the Virtual World that turns all of Ryan’s friends into babies.
Alongside the special, Amazon is the exclusive home for two new Ryan’s World Secret Spy toys from Bonkers. The Secret Agent Mystery Mission Case and Super Spy Figures 6-Pack are available now.
Next week, Ryan will become the first YouTube personality to be featured as a balloon at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
