Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe
Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe is a British animation studio based in London, England. It is an EMEA off-shoot of Cartoon Network Studios, having been formed in 2007, and went under the names Development Studio Studio Europe and Cartoon Network Studios Europe, until it was rebranded to its current name on April 7, 2021.
On September 21, 2021, HBO Max and Cartoon Network greenlit Ben Bocquelet's The Amazing World of Gumball: The Movie! and Gumball: The Series, spin-offs from The Amazing World of Gumball, which aired from 2011 to 2019. In August 2022, HBO Max dropped the movie, although it is still in production with hopes of being picked up elsewhere.
The next month, on July 18, it was announced that Craig McCracken had been hired to create a sequel based on his past series The Powerpuff Girls, and a preschool version of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. On the same day, it was announced that Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe was also working on The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe.
