A team of Chilean animators and artists is working to launch the first animated series of philosophy for children made with frame-by-frame animation, or stop motion, which will seek to stimulate critical thinking in children and adults.
It will be called Zander, a journey to the heart of the idea and will be aimed at children between the ages of 7 and 10. Its main characters will be Mila and Leo, who will make a robot called Zander that will constantly challenge the girls with their doubts and occurrences.
In each chapter the protagonists will try to decipher what it means to be human, while they exchange thoughts and embark on a fantastic journey that will take them to the strangest and most unsuspected places like the bottom of the sea, the stone age or Saturn’s rings, to try to reach the center of the idea.
The series will look for more than giving simple answers, to make children reflect about what is love, infinity, fear or time, among other complex concepts. It was made with funds from the National Council for Television in Chile and has been created by a multidisciplinary team. It will also be the first to bring this type of subject closer to children through animation.
Although we do not know the release date you can follow the Instagram of the project to keep you informed about the news of the series.
