Falcon’s Beyond expands Katmandu franchise with pre-school series

Published on: 13th April 2023

The yeti-focused animated series will bring to life characters from the popular Katmandu theme parks and games.

Following the grand opening of Katmandu Park in Punta Cana, the Caribbean’s first world-class theme park, entertainment company Falcon’s Beyond has announced its first animated series is now in development.

The pre-school show features Boro the Yeti, one of the breakout characters first introduced at the original Katmandu theme park in Mallorca, Spain, and a group of fun-loving, mischievous young yetis.

In the mission-oriented show, the young yetis go on adventures across Katmandu, helped by Kilgore Goode and Busby the Robot, also from the Katmandu franchise, who provide them with all the tech they need to complete their missions. Their headquarters is in the iconic upside-down house as seen in the Katmandu theme parks. Additional details, including the series’ distribution partner, creative team and title will be unveiled in the coming months.

“Yetis have quickly become beloved by visitors of our Katmandu theme parks, especially our youngest guests, so when we started to explore new entertainment concepts, we all agreed yetis were perfect leads for our first pre-school series,” said Cecil D. Magpuri, Falcon’s Beyond CEO. “With the recent opening of Katmandu Park in the Dominican Republic receiving tremendous fanfare, our consumer products programme, digital games, and now our first series in development, we are proud to see our 360-degree approach to expanding IP come to life.”

This series’ announcement follows the recent appointment of accomplished entertainment industry executive Simon Philips as the company’s president. In his previous roles, Simon’s approach to brand building helped shape the strategic direction of some of the world’s most iconic franchises, including Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, Pokémon, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Yu-Gi-Oh, and most recently CoComelon.

Last year, Falcon’s Beyond announced plans to become a publicly listed company through a business combination with Fast Acquisition Corp. II. Upon the closing of the transaction, the new combined company will be named Falcon’s Beyond Global, Inc.
