Nintendo announced on October 13, 2015 in a press release that a television series based on the Star Fox video game series is under production. The press release revealed that Disney-ABC Television Group approached Nintendo to co-create television series based off of their franchises. Both later came in agreement and greenlit production on a Star Fox television series as testing grounds for many possible shows to come. Shigeru Miyamoto gave an approval of the show and will oversee the production and act as a consultant.
Live action and animation
The press release detailed that the upcoming television series is being co-produced by Nintendo of America, The Jim Henson Company, and Disney Television Animation. In a unique blend of visuals, the show will utilize puppetry, stopmotion, traditional animation, and computer animation. Most of the characters will be portrayed by puppets created by The Jim Henson Company, reminiscent to the puppets used for the Nintendo Digital Event at E3 2015, with the puppets and some of the sets shot live. Some of the other characters will be created using various kinds of material and are animated in stopmotion by Disney Television Animation. Disney Television Animation will also provide the traditional and the computer-generated animation for the show, mainly used for special effects. Additionally, all of the end credit bits are fully traditionally animated with hand-drawn backgrounds.
