Voting begins today on DisneyXD.ca interactive website
TORONTO, Dec. 2, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Disney XD is putting the 'fan' in Fangbone by giving viewers the power to call the shots for its latest pilot. The network's new animated adventure follows the epic journey of a nine-year-old barbarian warrior and is getting an early start on DisneyXD.ca where viewers can influence the pilot's creative direction by voting for what they want to hear. Feedback from Disney XD fans on the interactive website will be incorporated into the show ahead of its network premiere in late January 2014.
"We are always making original content with fans in mind, and this approach gives us the chance to get the fans involved and invested from the get go," said Michael Goldsmith, Director, Original Programming, Disney XD. "By allowing them to weigh in during the decision making process, we're able to better serve our viewers and create a show that they feel connected to."
As part of the at-home adventure, fans who visit DisneyXD.ca/fangbone are able to weigh in on some of the most central elements to the show. Navigated by the comical Twinklestick, of the Mighty Wizard Clan, site visitors will watch two scenes and can vote on which features they prefer. They will have the opportunity to choose the voices of the title character Fangbone, and his loyal friend, Bill, as well as select between a dramatic or quirky musical score for a battle scene where the pair faces off against the evil Tyrano-pug. Voting opens today and will continue for the next five weeks.
"We could not be more excited to be sharing Fangbone with the Disney XD audience and to have them help us make creative decisions," said Michelle Melanson Cuperus, VP of Production & Development at Radical Sheep Productions. "This ensures we make a show that viewers will love."
