Superbook, the well-loved animated series from the 80’s and 90’s along with its new reimagined version is now a Kapamilya!
Just recently, Kapamilya executives and CBN Asia signed the contract to officially welcome Gizmo and the Superbook team to the Kapamilya Network and the contract signing held at the ELJ Towers, ABS-CBN Compound in Quezon City.
“Of course, we are very happy that finally Superbook is with ABS-CBN because we really believe in this animation and because we feel we have the same objective to better the lives of the Filipino, and for the kids to the best always. We feel that we are in sync and we have the same objectives. Superbook was meant to be here,” said Cory Vidanes, ABS-CBN Head for Broadcast.
“It’s really God’s timing for Superbook to be in ABS-CBN. We have always wanted to reach a new audience to share God’s love with,” added Peter Kairuz, CBN Asia President.
Superbook will air in Tagalog so that more children will be able to understand and grasp the values and lessons incorporated in the animation.
Superbook Project Head Icko Gonzales also highlighted the quality of the animation of the new and reimagined Superbook.
“The really exciting thing about it is the people behind Superbook are award-winning creative people, producers and animators. Superbook has been remade to fit the taste of the younger generation," Gonzales said.
Superbook is expected to reach more homes as kids and the whole family can watch their favorite Superbook characters Gizmo, Chris and Joy and their timeless Bible adventures at the Kapamilya Channel without having to wake up early as in a more convenient timeslot.
Watch Superbook Classic every Saturday beginning July 12, 9:30 a.m. and Superbook Reimagined every Sunday starting July 13 at 9:30 a.m. on ABS-CBN.
