One of the big new announcements on Tuesday, and set to roll out around the world from the end of 2018, 101 Dalmatians Street is inspired by Dodie Smith's 1956 novel and Walt Disney’s 1961 One Hundred and One Dalmatians. But it is has been updated and moved to contemporary London. It depicts the adventures of eldest dalmatian siblings Dylan and Dolly, parents Doug and Delilah, and ninety-seven younger puppies, all with names beginning with "D", who live all by themselves at the titular address. London’s Passion Animation Studios will lead-produce. Maria O'Loughlin writes, Miklos Weigert directs.
Ross showed a first-look development trailer, created by Passion.
"This teaser is the biggest, messiest family comedy you could imagine," he said. Narrated by Dolly, interrupted by Dylan, it showed the parents at their job – dad dalmatian works as firefighter – Dolly and Dylan running the house in their absence, and having fun on the London Eye. Animation looked fast-paced, eye-popping in color and kinetic, featuring knockabout (canine) family fun.
The show is set for 48 eleven-minute episodes, with two double-length special episodes.
- This will be the sixteenth television series to be based on a Disney animated feature, after The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Timon & Pumbaa, Jungle Cubs, 101 Dalmatians: The Series, Hercules, The Legend of Tarzan, Lilo & Stitch: The Series, The Emperor's New School, Jake and the Never Land Pirates, The 7D, The Lion Guard, Tangled: The Series and Big Hero 6: The Series.
- This will also be the second cartoon to be based on One Hundred and One Dalmatians, preceded by 101 Dalmatians: The Series.
- This makes One Hundred and One Dalmatians the second Disney franchise/film to have two cartoons based on the films of certain franchise itself, the first being The Lion King.
- Unlike 101 Dalmatians: The Series, which was set in the United States, this series will be set in the book and film's original location, London.
