GROO THE WANDERER ANIMATED FILM/TV RIGHTS ACQUIRED BY DID I ERR PRODUCTIONS
NEW RIGHTS OWNER JOSH JONES, A LIFELONG GROO FAN, SETS SIGHTS ON ELEVATING SERGIO ARAGONÉS’ BELOVED CHARACTER TO ANIMATED LIFE
LOS ANGELES, CA (November 18, 2021) – Entrepreneur Josh Jones has acquired the animated film and television rights to Groo the Wanderer, legendary cartoonist Sergio Aragonés’ beloved comics character, with the intent of producing the character’s first-ever animated entertainment via Jones’ Did I Err Productions company.
Groo the Wanderer, now in its landmark 40th year of publication, is the longest currently-running independent and “creator-owned” comic book property – outlasting many of the companies that published it. The brainchild of Aragonés, who creates the stories along with wordsmith Mark Evanier, the Eisner Award-winning Groo the Wanderer has been published by Dark Horse Comics since 1998.
Jones, and his Did I Err partner Scott Nocas, will serve as executive producers on the film and/or series with Aragonés and Evanier. Did I Err is focused on partnering with creative talent who understand Aragonés’ vision and characters. Projects are being packaged for streaming services and global distribution, with Did I Err able to co-finance as needed.
