Apple TV+ journeys to ‘Shape Island’ with kids commission

Shape Island

Apple TV+ has announced Shape Island, a new stop motion series for kids and families, based on the trilogy of Shapes picture books by Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen.

The series, which will debut globally on the streamer on 20 January, features the voices of Yvette Nicole Brown (Disenchanted), Harvey Guillen (What We Do In The Shadows), Scott Adsit (30 Rock) and Gideon Adlon (Blockers).

Taking place on a charming island, the series follows serious Square, intrepid Circle, and tricky Triangle on their silly adventures as they dig up some fun, search for answers, and build on their friendship – all while learning how to navigate each other’s differences.

The series was co-created by book authors Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen, who serve as executive producers alongside Bix Pix Entertainment’s Kelli Bixler and Drew Hodges (Tumble Leaf). Ryan Pequin serves as co-executive producer and head writer.
