PROVO, Utah, May 14, 2021 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Wingfeather Saga, an animated TV show based on the bestselling kids epic fantasy book series by Andrew Peterson, is announcing a crowdfunding campaign today to fund the creation of the show. Wingfeather will be distributed by Angel Studios, a new movie and TV studio platform putting the power of Hollywood into the hands of everyday Americans. The creators are looking to raise $5 million USD in 28 days to create Season 1.

"Families love shared experiences and we're excited to deliver a multi-season animated TV series that the whole family will enjoy. We're so thrilled to partner with Angel Studios, where we have the freedom to adapt these beloved novels with full creative control and deliver an epic and redemptive experience that is equally whimsical and full of truth" said J. Chris Wall, EP and Showrunner of The Wingfeather Saga.

The Wingfeather Saga animated series is based on the award-winning, bestselling novels from Andrew Peterson. The story features redemptive fantasy, deep magic, loveable characters, family values, and a whimsical sense of humor. The production team has enlisted help from veteran artists of studios like Pixar, Dreamworks Animation, Disney, Blue Sky and Nickelodeon. They've delivered an innovative and proprietary "hand-painted" CGI animation rendering technique through a wildly successful crowd-funded pilot episode.
