Seemingly ordinary school-age children, Bobby, Lola and Juliette have been selected by the B.I.A. (Bee Intelligence Agency) for those special spy missions in which only child agents can be involved.

Together the girls are known as the Berry Bees.  When the world’s top-secret villains unleash their mayhem and the Berry Bees are summoned to the rescue when the adult spies are simply not suitable for the case.

 

Bobby, Lola and Juliette become mistresses of disguise, secret undercover agents, astute mentalists and rad martial arts experts who also use awesome berry-themed gadgets to save the day.

Hypnotic Hair, Don’t Care

When the Greenthumbs use hypnotic shampoo to turn pop star Jeremy Dreamboat’s devoted fans into animals, the Berry Bees are sent in as members of his fan club to investigate.  They try to shut down the plan before the Greenthumbs turn the place into a zoo.

Screening exclusively in 57 EVENT Cinemas and 17 Village Cinemas across Australia from 9 November 2019, Alice-Miranda Friends Forever is an 80-minute animated movie with a treasure trove of marvellous mysteries, midnight feasts, ponies and pyjama parties based on the bestselling book series by Australian author, Jacqueline Harvey.

The Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Girls Academy is a place of friendship and fun, but also of high drama, mystery and intrigue: there’s teachers and students in urgent need of help; a girl determined to be Alice-Miranda and her friends’ arch enemy; Fayle School for Boys under threat; a frightening principal who doesn’t want to be seen; and a scary witch in the woods.

An original series created by SLR Productions, SPACE NOVA comprises 26 x 24 minute episodes specifically geared to a global six to ten year old audience.

It’s 2162 and life is a blast for space adventurer siblings, Jet and Adelaide Nova.  After all, what tween wouldn’t want to divide their days between living on an international space station and accompanying their parents on awesome interstellar missions!

Of course it’s not all asteroid chases and exploding star systems.  Jet and Adelaide also have to attend school, do homework (though their chores aren’t always so typical, like recharging the family robot and scrubbing their starships hull!).  Still, on weekends this Aussie astronaut family have their own unique way of unwinding, with Jet and Adelaide heading off with parents Hugo and Josie on mind blowing adventures to navigate unexplored planets, surf solar flares, hop between rogue stars and occasionally even discover previously unknown life forms.

Then, on one of these adventures the Novas stumble upon ‘Star Dust’, a strange super-powerful rainbow substance left behind in an abandoned alien ship stuck in a living celestial butterfly, and everything changes.

In fact, their discovery is so potentially explosive to the future of mankind, they must kept it secret from everyone they know, until they can unlock the secrets of the substance’s transformative powers and its potential connection to a far more intelligent alien civislation.

Life just got daring, thrilling and more perilous than the Nova family ever imagined as they begin the quest of their lives!
