The Franchise Debate: Are Kids Sick of the Same Old IPs?

Children’s entertainment was built on franchises, but a disappointing summer box office and waning enthusiasm for the latest stream of reboots indicate that these old-school IPs are no longer guaranteed hits. Are kids craving something new and exciting to call their own, or is the current slump just a minor blip? Listen in as we explore both sides of this question to determine once and for all if the franchise fatigue is real in Kidscreen Summit’s first-ever moderated debate. See who is crowned victorious.
