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.
