Jane and the Weta

Weta Workshop is collaborating with Toronto-based animation house Nelvana to produce a CGI television series of Martin Baynton’s popular Jane and the Dragon books. The 26-episode series is Weta’s first foray into children’s programming. “We have enjoyed a wonderful opportunity to create a fantastical world around the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien,” says Weta Workshop founder Richard Taylor. “It is therefore a great treat to be able to create our own world for Jane and her Dragon.”
