Sky Kids announces new The Epic Adventures of Morph series
October 28, 2020
This November, Sky Kids will debut The Epic Adventures of Morph, an action-packed stop-frame animated comedy series from Aardman, with 15-five minute episodes making it the longest season of Morph yet.
After almost 40 years apart, The Epic Adventures of Morph will see Morph and his sidekick Chas reunited with their old friends Delilah, Grandmorph and the Very Small Creatures. Morph and the gang are up to their usual mischievous antics, but in bigger and bolder adventures that take them beyond their desktop home and into the wider world for the very first time.
Staying true to the original format, The Epic Adventures of Morph was shot using clay and traditional stop-frame animation without dialogue at Morph’s original home, the Aardman studios in Bristol.
The first 10 episodes will be available on Sky Kids across all Sky platforms including Sky Q, Sky+, the Sky Kids App and the NOW TV Kids Pass from November 9th.
Lucy Murphy, Sky Director of Kids Content, said: “Morph has been bringing a bit of cheeky fun to our screens for decades and in these times of uncertainty the clay genius of The Epic Adventures of Morph is the perfect way for families to watch and laugh together with longer episodes of ever more inventive and exciting escapades.”
Merlin Crossingham, Director of Morph, added: “My fantastic team at Aardman have tackled some serious challenges since the pandemic hit half way through production. They rose to the challenge with skill and professionalism, putting their hearts into creating this latest series of Morph. More impressive still is the fact that this is our biggest and most ambitious series yet. I am very proud of them all and am delighted that The Epic Adventures of Morph can now be premiered on Sky Kids.”
