“We couldn’t be happier that our beloved Hanazuki inspired Hasbro to further develop the colourful cast of characters and create such a unique and dynamic new world full of surprises and magical mayhem,” said Niko Stumpo and Hanneke Metselaar, local Amsterdam artists and original creators of Hanazuki. “It’s been incredible to see Hasbro evolve the Hanazuki brand into so much more through vibrant storytelling, toys, and beyond.”
“In working closely with Niko and Hanneke, we were inspired by the spirit of Hanazuki and identified her as a strong, multidimensional and relatable heroine,” added Samantha Lomow, senior vice president, Hasbro Brands. “Within her effervescent world, we’ve developed a unique story that encourages audiences to embrace their ever-changing emotions and celebrate them in a uniquely empowering way. We know audiences will fall in love with Hanazuki and her magical and eccentric world.”
