Title: Dargaud chosen to take over the animation studio, Moonscoop
By Gregoire Poussielgue
EXCLUSIVE Already present in the field of animation, Dargaud significantly reinforces its catalogue.
Image caption: The animation studio, Moonscoop, has been purchased by the publisher, Dargaud, which is already present in the field of animation.
The commercial court of Paris has decided: the publisher, Dargaud, has been chosen to head the animation studio, Moonscoop, which was placed in bankruptcy last year. Dargaud was in competition with another French company, Millimages, as well as Capucine, a consortium put together for the occasion.
According to our information, Dargaud made the best financial offer: 600,000 euros, to take over Moonscoop, while the competition only offered 250,000 euros each. On the other hand, for the social plan, Dargaud has the cheapest proposal, because the company, presided by Claude de Saint-Vincent, is only interested in taking over two of the twenty-five salaries that still count in the company.
The low offers are explained by the fact that various higher-ups at Moonscoop are rich. Moonscoop's catalogue, which includes series like Titeuf and SamSam, is composed of about 1,000 hours. The company was once the second greatest French producer of animated series.
