Together with Håkan Bråkan’s creators, and the popular children’s and YA book authors, Sören Olsson and Anders Jacobsson, The Nuttery Entertainment is developing an animated series. The animated series will be based on completely new material but will take inspiration from the body of work created so far around the character. The series’ focus will be on the main character and his fantastic and exaggerated world full of adventure and it will be aimed at an international audience. 

“It is humbling and an incredible privilege to work on such an amazing IP as Håkan Bråkan. This kid is the standout character in the highly successful Andersson Family universe, combining heart, curiosity, imagination, and crazy antics. Can’t wait for kids all over the world to fall in love with the unique hero that Sören and Anders have created”, says Magnus Jansson, co-founder and CEO of Nuttery Entertainment

The collaboration with Nuttery Entertainment feels very inspiring! It is fun to be part of brainstorming ideas and developing completely new stories about Håkan Bråkan — who is transformed into Super Bråkan when you least expect it! ”, says Sören Olsson / Anders Jacobsson 

The animation development is taking place alongside Storytel’s major push of Anders Jacobsson and Sören Olsson’s authorship, where several new books are planned. As recently announced, Nordic Film will release two new live-action movies based on Håkan Bråkan, the first one releasing next year. 

“It’s super exciting that Anders and Sören’s stories about Håkan-Bråkan are becoming an animated series! One of our goals is to have our fantastic content reach out to audiences in new and creative ways and Nuttery Entertainment is the perfect partner to help us do this,” says Sara Hasselström at Storytel Agency.

Nuttery Entertainment will develop and executive produce the animated series alongside Storytel, with Sören and Anders onboard to help craft the creative materials. The project will be approaching co-producers early next year.
