Gaelstone Media Group acquires Panda Khan
Gaelstone Media Group, the studio known for the upcoming Amazon Prime Original Series Action Mice, announced its full acquisition of the classic 80s character Panda Khan. The iconic panda is well-known to nostalgia lovers who remember him as a regularly featured character in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book crossovers.
Toy collectors will recall that Panda Khan also made an appearance as an action figure in Playmates original TMNT toy line back in 1990. While the Panda Khan character is completely recognizable to Turtles fans and toy collectors of the 90s, he was never featured in the highly popular Ninja Turtles cartoon show.
Jon Robert Bryans, CEO, Founder and Co-Creative Director had the following to comment:
“We at Gaelstone were so very fortunate to meet Dave Garcie and Monica Sharp, the amazingly kind and generous creators of such a timeless character. It was enormous for us, and we worked so hard to make it happen.”
Now in Gaelstone’s hands, the beloved character will experience a pop culture resurgence, with the company planning to place the panda in newly developed comic book and animated adventures.
“I wanted to grow the brand of Panda Khan into something it wasn’t the first time around, but deserved to be. Panda Khan does come with pre-existing lore in the comic books, but we will be taking him in a slightly different direction with the animated series.
“We at Gaelstone Media have created a universe (not unlike the MCU Marvel Cinematic Universe) and Panda Khan was a perfect addition to our universe, The Anthroverse.”
