What is The Wingfeather Saga?

The Wingfeather Saga is a redemptive fantasy book series for the whole family that is being turned into a multi-season, animated TV show! It’s wonderful, it’s spectacular, and some even call it magical. Close to 8,000 families helped it become the largest crowdfunded kids TV series in history, raising $1M dollars in under a week, and the annual crowdfunding limit of $5M for Season One in just 20 days.

But that’s only the beginning, because the story will unfold over 7 Seasons to its satisfying and epic conclusion! Season One premiered on December 2nd, 2022 on the Angel app. The Season has been met with popular critical and audience response with over 400 Ten-Star Ratings on IMDB (9/10 Stars) and 100% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Now Funding Season Two

In August 2022 we came back to the crowd to start pre-production of Season Two and successfully raised $1,714,935. Thousands of fans have purchased merch and Paid-it-Forward through Angel Studios which has further helped to fund Season Two. Additionally, we have privately funded a portion of the Season Two budget and we are now coming back to the crowd to complete the Season Two funding!

In total we have raised $3,214,935 for Season Two. We are seeking an additional $3,281,065 to fund the rest of the Season Two for release in Winter 2023-2024.

*$3,214,935 raised so far from August 2022 Reg CF ($1,714,935) and Reg D ($1,500,000).

The Story

The Wingfeather Saga chronicles the adventures and transformations of the Igiby family as they discover secrets of their family history, flee the evil Fangs of Dang, seek their place in the world, and make a stand against the mysterious ruler, Gnag the Nameless.

They will need their special gifts and all the love of their noble mother and ex-pirate grandfather to survive the venomous Fangs, sea dragons, flabbits, and (gulp) toothy cows!

  • During the 2020 re-launch with Penguin Random House, The Wingfeather Saga book sales grew by 600%

Meet the cast!

Our group of actors are almost as magical as their Wingfeather counterparts.

This includes an amazing group of real kids, plus talented actors like Jodi Benson (Disney’s The Little Mermaid), Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Henry Ian Cusick (Lost).

Who is creating the animated series?

Shining Isle Productions, based in Nashville, TN was founded by Andrew Peterson and J. Chris Wall in 2016. Their desire is to create stories that awaken a sense of deep longing and to do that with the highest craftsmanship we can achieve.

The company developed the property and ultimately launched Toothy Cow Productions, LLC (a wholly-owned subsidiary) in 2021 as the funding vehicle and production company to produce the animated series.

What will Season Two be like?

The Wingfeather Saga team has developed an innovative blend between CGI and hand-drawn artistry to bring the unique character of the series to life. 

We wanted to echo the story experience in a visual way, which meant finding new ways to make traditional CGI feel more organic. The result invites the audience to engage their imagination in a more abstract visual space that extends beyond the edges of the frame.

Music plays an important role in the story, and we’ve assembled an amazing team of Nashville artists. Kurt Heinecke (VeggieTales), Arcadian Wild, and producer Ben Shive have set out to create a soundtrack that sets the story in a completely original space.

The story in Season One will set the stage for our young heroes, revealing family secrets and identities, with Season Two challenging the characters with epic and difficult choices.

Where will the series be available?

The series will premiere first on Angel Studios, the studio behind the smash hit TV show The Chosen. It will then expand to other platforms as the series grows.

The Challenge

We’re grateful for the amazing team creating The Wingfeather Saga animated series. Now the challenge is to keep them working to deliver a quality product without enormous lag times between seasons. With so much new content available to kids and families every week, we don’t want to lose your family’s attention!

There are thousands of Wingfeather Saga fans out there, and millions more future Wingfeather fans waiting to discover the story’s amazing characters, rich world, and deep truths. Something the whole family can watch and talk about together.

The Leadership Team

The leadership team includes decades of animation experience. Art Director Garrett Taylor invests deeply into the visual development of the series, leading a team of talented designers, illustrators and painters that apply their skills directly to the screen. Keith Lango is the visionary CG and Animation Supervisor bringing to life a distinct hand-crafted CG hybrid animation style for the ground-breaking series. Our in-house (literally) animation studio has developed a complete production pipeline with proprietary tools allowing The Wingfeather Saga to be created with cutting edge game-engine technology from Unreal Engine, while still delivering a rich and authentic “paint-motion” experience. This technology gives our team of artists and technicians world-class animation tools to bring to life the whimsical and epic world of The Wingfeather Saga.

Deeply Rooted Values

The Wingfeather Saga is a deeply redemptive fantasy rooted in values that kids need but can’t find easily in today’s entertainment. 

Research shows that “the influence of the media on the psychosocial development of children is profound.”

It’s important to take an active role in selecting content that will help incredible kids become incredible adults. This series delivers on that promise by weaving those themes into the story world itself.

  • Magic is experienced, not conjured.

  • Family is a foundation, not a confrontation.

  • Identity matters.

  • Love is sacrifice.

  • Good conquers evil.

The Angel Funding Model

When you invest in The Wingfeather Saga, you’re investing in the entire company and animated series, not just Season Two.

Unlike other crowdfunding campaigns, when you back our project on Angel Funding, you’re not donating money, you’re investing in the show’s success. That means if the show succeeds in earning enough revenue, you will earn a share of the profits. And the profits on successful content can be huge.* The top 10 highest-grossing franchises of all time have been made for kids.

There’s a need for great family-friendly media, especially a TV series like The Wingfeather Saga that features a family standing together against great evil.

*Although it is true that profits on successful content can be huge, we are not making a guarantee of any return. Please only invest what you can afford to lose.

**Investing in Reg CF is only available to U.S. residents.

An enormous portion of the revenue earned by these top franchises comes from merchandising. The memorable characters in The Wingfeather Saga and its ever-vicious monsters, like Toothy Cows and Horned Hounds, provide exciting merchandising opportunities that we plan to leverage to extend the audience experience.

And by partnering with Angel Studios, where communities of fans are championing the content they want to see succeed, The Wingfeather Saga is positioned to connect with families around the world!

Plus, if you invest, you’ll be helping create something that you believe in, something your whole family can enjoy episode after episode towards the satisfying conclusion.
