Montreal, February 18, 2020 – Digital Dimension proudly announces the establishment of the Digital Dimension Entertainment Group to support the worldwide growth and success of its creations and productions. This holding company will be made up of three new divisions charged with promoting the expansion of its international business.
The new divisions – Saturday Animation Studio, Meduzarts Animation Studio and KRAKN.MEDIA – will continue the original missions and brand successes achieved by Digital Dimension over the past 24 years; at the same time, they will be able to strengthen their business positioning in the global market thanks to the advantages offered by the conglomerate.
