MUMBAI: DQ Entertainment said Tuesday that ‘Lanfeust Quest’, a 26 episode animated TV series co-produced with Gaumont Animation, France, has been acquired by leading broadcasters for multiple regions.
‘Lanfeust Quest’ is an adaptation of the bestselling comic and manga franchise Lanfeust of Troy.
The series has been acquired by Disney XD for Turkey, Spain, Benelux, German-speaking Europe, Italy and Central & Eastern Europe, Middle East & Africa (CEEMA) regions that includes about 50 countries. DQE holds the right for the territories of Turkey, Middle East and all of Asia under the terms of the co-production with Gaumont Animation.
Acquiring a dose of boys’ action adventure, the series has also been picked up by TVE (Spain), ABC3 (Australia) and for Pay-TV networks, Biggs Channel (Portugal).
Lanfeust Quest follows the adventures of 14-year-old Lanfeust as he becomes the only hero in charge of protecting Planet Troy.

Lanfeust Quest is directed by Antoine Charreyron (The Prodigies, Galactik Football) and Tarik Hamdine. There has been active interest for the series from broadcasters and leading licensing and home video companies from other regions.
