LazyTown stands stronger than ever. The company's relatives are big-hearted and seem to have every reason to be optimistic about the business in the coming years. "We have just become part of the Turner group, which in turn is part of Time Warner. Those agreements were finalized late 2011, and the purpose, among other things, to bring on board an owner who has the right distribution channels," say...
Fans of LazyTown can rejoice because they are about to start filming 26 new episodes of this hugely popular children’s show. The aim is to start shooting in February 2012, with thirteen episodes being recorded in the first cycle, after which the episodes will most likely begin airing on TV by the end of that year.
In total, it is expected to take about three years to film the 26 episodes. Recordings of the shows will take place in the LazyTown studio in Garðabær, and 167 new jobs will be created during this production.
As far as Fréttatíminn can tell, all the old residents of LazyTown, Stephanie and Ziggy among them, will return, and in addition, it is planned that new residents of the town will be introduced in the episodes. It is not expected that Magnús Scheving will play Sportacus, and it is uncertain whether Stefán Karl Stefánsson will return as Robbie Rotten.
LazyTown has been struggling with great financial difficulties lately, but after the Turner’s purchase of the company, which was announced yesterday, people are looking forward to brighter times in LazyTown.
