KiXi, Germany’s leading video-on-demand service for children, has added the library of animated movies based on classic tales by Golden Films to its programming slate.
Titles include evergreen stories such as Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Hercules, Cinderella, Thumbelina, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, The three Musketeers, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Treasure Island, The Jungle Book, Tarzan and many more.
The films will initially be released on KiXi’s Amazon Prime video channel “KiXi Select” as well as on KiXi’s owned and operated website and App.
“Book-based content is always a great match to our offering of educational valuable children’s movies. These stories are known world-wide and have fascinated generations of people for decades, if not centuries. And they will continue to do so in the future. The adaptations of those timeless classics by Golden Films enjoy cult status in the United States and we are happy to introduce them to a broad audience in Germany, now.”, says Sascha Stradtmann, Head of Acquisitions and Programming at KiXi.
“Now more than ever, we believe there is a great need for children’s programming that teaches non-violent, non-bullying approaches to conflict resolution and other positive values” stated Diane Eskenazi, President of Golden Films. We are thrilled to partner with Kixi on these award-winning films.
