Angel Studio’s “The Wingfeather Saga” is now the largest crowdfunded animated family series ever in a major win for wholesome entertainment.
“The Wingfeather Saga, an animated TV show based on the bestselling and award-winning fantasy book series by Andrew Peterson and distributed by Angel Studios, has crowdfunded $6.7 million to date, making it the most crowdfunded animated family show” the Washington Examiner reports.
“As a crowdfunded project, The Wingfeather Saga is set to be a multi-season series. Through Angel Studios, it raised the annual crowdfunding limit of $5 million for season one in just 20 days, paving the way for the show’s production. The show is now raising funds for additional seasons.”
Angel Studios, which produces the successful TV Series “The Chosen”, is thrilled by the Wingfeather Saga’s success, “‘Families everywhere yearn to experience an epic adventure together, particularly one that brings truth into clear focus’ Angel Studios CEO Neal Harmon said. ‘That was obvious to us when 10,000 angel investors helped make The Wingfeather Saga a reality.'”
This comes after the theatrical release of “The Chosen” Season III bested a number of major motion pictures — “beating out DC Comics, Universal, and Disney” as CBN reports. All in all, it is a good week for Angel Studios!
Per their website, the series centers on “three children and their trusty dog Nugget… Together they discover the secret of the Jewels of the Shining Isle. They will need their special gifts and all the love of their noble mother and ex-pirate grandfather to survive the venomous Fangs, sea dragons, flabbits, and (gulp) toothy cows!”
“From having [The Wingfeather Saga books] touch us deeply, I knew I wanted to be a part of bringing it to the screen. It’s beautiful to read it, but to see it visually is going to enable so many more people have access to the story and touch them in very personal, deep ways.”
While the wokesters in Hollywood are pushing unpopular ideas in film and television, the people will always prefer the wholesome ideals of America’s Founding.
