Netflix commissions new animation from Ireland South East’s Cartoon Saloon

Netflix has commissioned Cartoon Saloon, the world-beating Kilkenny-based animation house, to produce a new feature entitled My Father’s Dragon. Nora Twomey, who received an Oscar nomination earlier this year for Cartoon Saloon’s The Breadwinner, will direct the adaptation of Ruth Stiles Gannett’s much-admired children’s novel.

“To have the kind of creative encouragement Netflix are providing is an incredible opportunity for our filmmaking team,” Twomey said. “We are all so excited to bind our skills together and begin My Father’s Dragon.” First published in 1948, the book concerns a young boy who attempts to rescue a dragon from the remote Wild Island. It has remained a favourite of American educators ever since.

Cartoon Saloon are now able to boast three Oscar nominations for best animated feature, The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea also competed along with The Breadwinner. The company has also had success with such TV shows as Skunk Fu! and Puffin Rock.
