Hasbro and Entertainment One
Peppa Pig... I just learned of Peppa's existence on the trip (see next section), it is completely out of my scope of attention. I heard recently that Hasbro paid out $4 billion dollars and that Peppa Pig was part of the purchase deal. First, what is it with $4 billion these days? Disney bought Lucasfilm for $4 billion. Disney bought Marvel for $4 billion.
I completely glossed over any other detail of the transaction until MaryNiko pointed out that it was Entertainment One that was purchased. You can read that and some of my earlier research on essentially "what became of Koch?" here in the [forums]. The Market Watch headline read Hasbro gets Peppa Pig, and lots more, with $4 billion Entertainment One acquisition and you might be wondering why does this matter? That gem is found in Canadian Media Producers Association's ongoing list of Signatory Producers link, which gets updated online from time to time. Within that documentation of CMPA (formerly CFTPA) Signatory Producers 2015 to 2017 (extended to June 30, 2019) Animation up to April 9, 2019) is found an interesting one liner:
Entertainment One Television Productions Ltd for "Galaxy Rangers"
What's next? Toys? A reboot? Should Grant Gould brush off some of that concept art?
Unfortunately that's all I can scrape up for now with a search engine. If you know more, join the discussion in the [forums] or message me on the Twitters via @betamountain!
