Cartoon Saloon Launches Subsidiary Rights Division Ahead of Las Vegas Licensing Expo 2019
31 May 2019 : Nathan Griffin

Four-time Academy Award®, Golden Globe®, BAFTA and Emmy-nominated animation studio, Cartoon Saloon, is forming an ancillary rights division, and will attend Las Vegas Licensing Expo for the first time in partnership with Dentsu Entertainment USA to explore licensing and merchandising opportunities for its original IP, headlined by the upcoming and eagerly awaited animated feature, ‘Wolfwalkers’.

Set in 17th century Ireland at a time when wolves were evil creatures, ‘Wolfwalkers’ tells the story of a young apprentice hunter who goes to Ireland with her father to wipe out the last pack. 

Cartoon Saloon and Dentsu will offer a sneak peek of ‘Wolfwalkers’ at the Licensing Expo starting on June 4th. Opportunities across all categories of licensing will be explored with a key focus on toys, publishing, and live-experiential events.  Additional properties to be presented at Licensing Expo include ‘The Secret of Kells’, ‘Song of the Sea’, and ‘The Breadwinner’, each Oscar® nominated in the Best Animated Feature category, as well as the Emmy-nominated TV series, ‘Puffin Rock’, and a look at new early stage projects.

Dentsu Entertainment USA, a content production and rights management arm of the Japanese media conglomerate Dentsu, Inc., continues to focus on building unique entertainment-based business strategies for its clients and partners.  In Japan, Dentsu recently announced Cardcaptor Sakura: The Enchanted Museum, and is exploring similar opportunities for Cartoon Saloon properties.

Speaking about the launch, Gerry Shirren, Managing Director of Cartoon Saloon said:

“We have come to know the people at Dentsu, both in Los Angeles and Tokyo very well over the last few years and now together with Dentsu, we can achieve an immediate presence in North American, European and Asian markets for our new ancillary rights division. We are pleased to be finally launching this new relationship.”

Marc Harrington, EVP of Global Strategy & Development, Dentsu Entertainment USA added:

“Cartoon Saloon has carved-out a special place in the international animation industry with their original concepts, powerful story-telling and illustrative style,” “Given the upcoming release of Wolfwalkers, this is the perfect time for the company to launch their new division and we are proud to partner with them to grow their brands and seek-out partners who will extend authentic engagement with their well-loved characters.”

Brian Tyrrell, Cartoon Saloon’s newly appointed General Manager, Licensing & Merchandise, who has an extensive background representing European manufacturers in the Toy, Homewares and Gift Markets, will work closely with Dentsu.  At Licensing Expo, the team will be in the executive suites section located on the show floor.
