Vikingskool, created by Norwegians Frederick P. N. Howard and Gisle Normann Melhus, is a 26 x half-hour series that follows the adventures of three wannabe warriors Erik, Ylva and Arni at an eccentric academy for Vikings. The series is a co-production between Ireland’s renowned Cartoon Saloon, France’s Samka Productions and Norway’s Storm Films, and will debut on Disney Channel in late 2019.

The new series takes place in 21st century London, and is being produced in London by Passion Animation Studios. It will premiere on Disney Channel across EMEA in late 2018 and roll out around the rest of the world in 2019.
