Today the anime streaming service Crunchyroll announced a partnership with Webtoon to develop new animated content. WEBTOON’s new animated content created with Crunchyroll will offer a fresh experience from their favorite titles.
“There is tremendous crossover appeal with our audiences,” said Taylor Grant, SVP of IP Development at WEBTOON “and exceptional creative synergy on the types of stories we want to tell. We’re excited to partner with Crunchyroll to bring our globally appealing characters to audiences and consumers in new ways, as well as create new opportunities for our talented creators.”
“We are extremely excited to be partnering with WEBTOON,” said Joanne Waage, General Manager of Crunchyroll. “WEBTOON has a tremendous catalogue of content and creators that resonate deeply with our audience and we can’t think of a better way to delight fans than by bringing these stories to life through animation.”
