Netflix Giving Sanjay Patel's Animated Series GHEE HAPPY a Green Light for the Streamer
Netflix has given the green light to a new animated series called Ghee Happy, from Sanjay Patel, an animator who has worked on A Bug’s Life, Monster’s Inc. and University, Toy Story 2, The Incredibles and its sequel, and Ratatouille. Deadline reports the following description of the children show:
The animated show from director-animator-illustrator is a playful reimagining of the Hindu deities as little kids discovering their powers in a deity daycare appropriately called Ghee Happy.
Patel made the following statement about his original series:
“For the past 25 years I’ve been working in kids and family entertainment without having kids of my own,” said Patel. “Having finally become a parent, I’m so excited and lucky to be able to create a preschool series that introduces the great pantheon of Hindu Deities, not just into a beautiful and colorful series that is truly entertaining and original to my kiddos, but to families around the world.”
This sounds different and sweet, and like a series kids might really love. Will you be checking it out?
