The theatrical roll-out will commence in early July in France by SND and in Germany by StudioCanal, as well as in China, Belgium, Switzerland, Poland and the Eastern Europe region, Russia, Greece, Turkey, and Israël. With broad appeal across age demographics, Miraculous has become a digital planetary craze with over 35 billion views on YouTube (authorized and user-generated content).

ZAG’s licensing and merchandising, gaming, and promotions groups, focus on developing products and experiences beyond the screen into brands that inspire the new generation to discover their true character.
