LoliRock is a French animated television series developed by Marathon Studios, produced by Jean Louis Vandestoc and written by Madellaine Paxson. Made in partnership with France Télévisions, it was displayed on Disney Channel France. The show premiered on November 2014.
The show is set in two places: Earth and a magical kingdom, the latter currently controlled by the evil ruler Gramorr. In the past, the kingdom was ruled by a king and queen, who are revealed to be the parents of the protagonist, but they lost the throne when Gramorr betrayed them. The Oracle Gems, previously located in the queen's crown, which protected her, were scattered across Earth so that Gramorr would not access their power. Gramorr is now searching for them to seize control of the oracle gems. The main character, Iris, is the princess and rightful heir of Ephedia, who was sent to Earth by the queen to keep her safe until she could use her powers to defeat Gramorr, and adopted by her Aunt Ellen.
A few years after the conquest, Iris is already a dreamy high school girl with a beautiful voice. Iris' life changes dramatically when she discovers that a new girl group, Lolirock, is looking for a singer. After Nat suggests that she audition, she decides to go. As soon as she starts singing, she is surrounded by the glow of powerful magical lights. Little did she know that the stars of LoliRock, Talia and Auriana, were searching for the ultimate princess who was missing for the group, which came to be Iris herself. She then joins the group as a vocalist, and discovers that she is princess of a kingdom called Ephedia. Besides being busy touring, they also have to save the world from the forces of the evil Gramorr, gather the Oracle Gems before he does, and restore the kingdom to its rightful rulers.
The animated series is about 26 minutes long per episode, produced by Marathon, in partnership with France Télévisions and Disney Channel France. Focused on children 6 to 12 years, it follows the adventures of Iris, a teenage girl who must divide his time between gigs with his rock band and his life as a princess from a faraway kingdom. The music promises to be the main focus of the show, who should win a big investment, and become the key in the Marathon Media strategy. As part of the marketing plan, the animation has five animated videos posted on social media and YouTube, before the TV debut. In addition, bands LoliRock was launched in all major regions of France, and later in other countries where the show should win major. The series is written by Madellaine Paxson, who worked on famous animation as Lilo & Stitch, The Legend of Tarzan and Kim Possible. The series will have a cost of 22 million for its production. 9 Patricia Wilde, senior vice president of Zodiak Kids Consumer Products said that the show will stand out by showing its premise from the beginning, unlike the series Totally Spies, who did not. She also said that at the beginning, the production thought about making a live-action series, most gave up the idea that he considered the market of cartoons was better for girls today.
