Back late in 2022, thatgamecompany revealed that they were working on an animated project for Sky: The Children of the Light. We saw a teaser trailer at that time, but details on just what the series would be have been rather light. That changes today with a new interview.

In an interview with VentureBeat, thatgamecompany’s Jenova Chen has shared not only a status update on the Sky animated project, but some insight into the story it’ll tell. You can get the full details on this 10-episode series below.

On the other hand, we’ve been working on an animated series, which we hope can also bring a new audience to the world of Sky. We’ll release a teaser of the animated series. We were just making small videos for that. I have a high standard of quality, though. I just keep pushing the team, and now it’s almost like a Pixar movie quality. It tells the story of two children, and the drama about the two of them trying to help people. One of them seeks power to change the world, but in the process he’s corrupted and destroyed. The other one tries to save the world by convincing the former world to give up its power. The boy becomes a king.

…It’s 10 episodes, around two and a half hours all together. We started working on it two years ago. We’ve changed the script a couple times already. I’m the director. It’s always happened for a good reason. It becomes pretty dark in the latter half of the series.

…Early next year, around March, that’s when we’ll release the pilot episode. But we haven’t announced anything exact yet. The full trailer you saw, we’ll launch it around the global PC launch in November.
