Hulu to Premiere New ‘Mike the Knight’ Film Prior to DVD Release
Mike the Knight is coming to Hulu.
The animated character, a favorite among preschoolers, is the star of a new movie called “Mike the Knight: Journey to Dragon Mountain,” which will debut exclusively on Hulu Plus in North America before its DVD release next month. The deal comes via producers Hit Entertainment, a division of Fisher-Price behind hit kiddie franchises like “Bob the Builder” and “Barney,” and independent studio NCircle Entertainment.
“Mike the Knight: Journey to Dragon Mountain” will premiere on Hulu’s paid service Tuesday, September 16, and will be available to stream until October 13, a day before the planned DVD release.
The film follows the titular character and his family as they search for a stolen treasured crystal jewel.
This title, as well as others from NCircle, are available via the studio’s branded channel on Hulu. The studio has an existing deal with Hulu to bring a wide variety of children’s brands to Hulu, including “The Wiggles” and “Yo Gabba Gabba!
