The pilot for an action cartoon set in a African inspired fantasy world. A mythic, epic experience with a unique cultural perspective.

Kickstarter rock stars, and Harvard Business School grads, John and Charles Agbaje helped create the ground breaking comic series The Spider Stories. Showcasing their vibrant art work, The Spider Stories draws from African folklore and history, but exists in a totally new and robust fantasy world. Featuring deep characters, lighthearted moments and exciting action, the Spider Stories crafts a unique view on African story telling. This coming of age story will be the first African-inspired fantasy series to hit the world stage. The story follows a princess-in-rags as she transforms into a powerful queen.

The Alliance of five tribes–Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Rhino and Buffalo–once bound together under the guidance of the great SPIDER SPIRIT is thrown into turmoil when the royal Lion family is decimated by mysterious invaders. Leadership falls to the Elephants and the Iron King, who rules as a corrupt tyrant. After several years the fearless PRINCESS ZAHARA, the last of the Lions, is brought out of hiding and taken into the Spirit World to bond with the mischievous and powerful Spider Spirit, the only being capable of restoring order to the Tribes. With the help of Spider’s herald, a goofy drummer named AYAN, Zahara begins her battle to defeat the Iron King and reclaim the throne. Stay tuned for the 11-minute pilot episode slated for release this summer.
