Nov 10, 2021

LONDON, UK – November 10th, 2021 – Silvergate Media (Silvergate) has announced that Octonauts Above and Beyond launched in cinemas across South Korea from October 27 2021. Octonauts is a leading pre-school property in South Korea where the show held the number 1 position on Netflix for over a month when the show launched exclusively on the platform in September.

With six seasons of Octonauts Above and Beyond in production this exciting new set of adventures is well placed to enlarge the reach of the Octonauts brand as the characters officially take their mission onto land for the very first time.

The cinematic release has been specially created for South Korean cinema audiences. The 55-minute compilation sets the scene for the Octonauts’ new adventures on land by combining the first-ever episode of the new series with three other highly entertaining Octonauts adventures.

Ron Allen EVP Commercial, Silvergate commented:

“We are delighted to partner with Lotte Cinemas in South Korea to bring Octonauts Above & Beyond to its youngest cinema-goers. South Korea is already a really important market for Octonauts and the theatrical release is an integral part of our strategy to build Octonauts Above & Beyond there.”

The Octonauts are a team of adventurers who explore the world’s oceans, rescue aquatic creatures and protect their habitats. Based on the richly imaginative books by Meomi, Octonauts combines eye-popping visuals, submersive humour and pulse-quickening action to transport young children into an undersea universe. Octonauts Above & Beyond remains true to the show’s core values of being fun and entertaining while continuing to convey the wonder, variety and fragility of our planet to a pre-school audience.
