The Los Amigos group – a combination of three studios from Brazil, Chile and Peru – created the 20 episodes of the first season inspired by the Rovio’s game Angry Birds Dream Blast
The first season of Angry Birds Bubble Trouble, a 3D short series with the Angry Birds young flock debuts on the characters’ YouTube channel. The first episodes are already online. New episodes and compilations will be available worldwide for free every Saturday. In the plot, the beloved animals get involved in all kinds of trouble in a garden full of surprises. The series was produced in partnership between the game’s studio Rovio Entertainment and Los Amigos, a joint venture between Hype Animation (Brazil), PunkRobot (Chile) and Red Animation Studios (Peru), responsible for all the creative aspects and animation.
The show explores the childhood of the well-known characters Red, Bomb, Chuck, Stella and Silver and their games, imagination and rivalries. All with the good humor that marks the franchise. The videogame Angry Birds Dream Blast served as the basis for the show that has 20 episodes of one minute each. The series is created and written by Jordan Nugem, executive produced by Gabriel Garcia, Milton Guerrero and Pato Escala and directed by Fabiano Pandolfi.
Founded at the beginning of the year, Los Amigos – the largest collective animation studio in Latin America – combines the companies Hype Animation (“Taina and the Amazon’s Guardians”), PunkRobot (from the Academy Awards winner “Bear Story”) and Red Animation Studios (“A Mouse Tale”). Integrated production allows everything to be done in real time between the three countries. Angry Birds Bubble Trouble is the studio’s first released work.
The Los Amigos were in charge of the creative part of the series. “The Angry Birds are part of our pop culture”, says the screenwriter Jordan Nugem. “All of these characters already exist, however, creative freedom was given to us to shape these characters and their world”, he recalls. “It is very beautiful to see how much affection the whole team has put into this project. It is certainly a proof of the quality and commitment of animation professionals in Latin America ”, concludes Nugem.
