Lionsgate’s Grindstone Entertainment has picked up North American rights to Wicked Flying Monkeys. Mexico’s Anima Estudios produced the animated fantasy set in L. Frank Baum’s Oz world, the company’s biggest production to date. This deal comes on the heels of the announcement that Anima would create the first Latin American-produced animated Netflix series, Las Leyendas, in September. Jorge R. Gutierrez, director of The Book of Life, co-wrote, executive produced and worked as a character designer on Wicked Flying Monkeys.
