The phenomenal 1980’s animation we love is back! Get ready as Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) brings you an all-new Superbook. Once more, viewers will experience a one of kind journey with triple the excitement. On June 1, the new Superbook’s pilot episode “In the Beginning” will air at 7:30 a.m. on GMA 7.
In addition, Superbook Classic episodes will air every Sunday, starting June 2 at 7:30 a.m. also on GMA.
An animated Bible series for children in Japan, Superbook is now a world-class animation.
Since its first airing in Japan, the Superbook series has now been broadcast in over 106 countries, translated into 43 languages and has been viewed by over a half billion people.
And to keep up with today’s new storytelling technology, the original series has been improved to match this media-savvy generation. To address this challenge, CBN, together with top Hollywood producers, animators, and directors, put their minds together and as a result: a relived, reinvented, and reimagined Superbook.
“Our goal is not only to produce a child-friendly program, but more importantly, a child-focused show for this generation to digest. Superbook aims to capture the hearts of the children of today. In addition, even the parents will enjoy and learn from it. It’s a perfect
bonding activity for families,” says Icko Gonzalez, Superbook Project Head in the Philippines.
As Gonzalez puts it, “The new Superbook is for the now generation.”
