Disney Junior gets Fancy! The book series “Fancy Nancy” is coming!
The animated series and TV movie is set to run in 2017.
The stories, written by Jane O’Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser, center on a young girl who’s drawn to fancy clothing, words and more. Disney Junior will also develop role-play items and consumer products based on the series, which is geared toward children ages 2-7.
“This is definitely one of those ‘pinch me’ moments,” said O’Connor in a statement. “When Robin and I met Nancy Kanter and her team, we knew instantly that Disney Junior was the plus-perfect home for Fancy Nancy.”
From Disney Junior Nancy Kanter:
“Children have been captivated by Fancy Nancy’s wit and irrepressible spirit for a decade and we are very eager to give her an even bigger stage on which to perform.”
“We are thrilled to be collaborating with Disney Junior to bring Fancy Nancy to the small screen and to the next generation of fans,” added Susan Katz, president, and publisher of HarperCollins Children’s Books. “As we celebrate the 10th Anniversary of this bestselling series, it’s exciting to see our beloved character making her TV debut.”
Robin Preiss Glasser continued saying:
“After the thrill of seeing my two-dimensional drawings of Nancy and her ‘world’ come alive in spin-off musicals and ballets, the opportunity to see her animated by Disney is a dream I never would have dared to dream!”
