SEATTLE - October 14, 2016 - (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon today announced it has ordered two new Amazon Original Kids Series including Little Big Awesome that combines 2D animation, puppetry, and live-action; and the Emmy Award-winning Ronja the Robber's Daughter, debuting later this fall and narrated by Golden Globe Award-winning actress Gillian Anderson (The X-Files). An additional 26 episodes of the hit preschool series The Stinky & Dirty Show have also been greenlit. All three series will debut on Prime Video in the US, UK, Germany, Austria and Japan. Amazon's new children's series come from talented creators including Ben Gruber (Spongebob Squarepants, Super Jail) and Academy Award-winning Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle). The Stinky & Dirty Show, which debuted last month, is rated 4.8 stars by customers with 87% 5-star reviews and available to stream and download today.

"We are truly honored to be working with a team of exceptionally talented creators," said Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios. "From the unique style of Little Big Awesome to the adaptation of beloved book series Ronja the Robber's Daughter, we aim to bring a new level of storytelling to our customers and their families."

Amazon Original Kids Series are available for Prime members to stream and enjoy using the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices including Amazon Fire TV, and mobile devices, or online at www.amazon.com/originals, at no additional cost to their membership - Prime members can also download titles to mobile devices for offline viewing. Customers who are not already Prime members can sign up for a free trial at www.amazon.com/prime. For a list of all Amazon Video compatible devices, visit www.amazon.com/howtostream.

Little Big Awesome is a comedy for kids ages 6 to 11 that combines 2D animation, puppetry, and real live action footage as we explore the whimsically weird world of Ballopolis. The series follows Gluko, a jelly giant, and Lennon, a small kid-like creature with a fuzzy hat, who are inseparable buddies. They adventure through a universe where sea turtles fly, flowers talk, and tear drops splash around on a hot summer day. Gluko and Lennon's desire to help those around them can, at times, lead them to epically outlandish places, but at the end of the day, the series is about two best buds making their own fun and enjoying the wonderfully strange world around them. The series is created by Tomas Dieguez (TRONCO), executive produced by Ben Gruber (Spongebob Squarepants and Super Jail), and animated by Emmy award-winning studio Titmouse (Randy Cunningham, Metalocalypse). Dieguez, Diego Sebastian Rosner (Underdogs), Agustin Alberdi, Andrés Ernesto Fogwill and Ignacio Orive are co-executive producers.

The Emmy Award-winning Ronja The Robber's Daughter is an adaptation of the wildly popular children's fantasy book of the same name by noted Swedish author Astrid Lindgren (Pippi Longstocking). The series is directed by Goro Miyazaki and presented by the Academy Award-winning Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle) and Saltkrakan (the Astrid Lindgren Company). Ronja The Robber's Daughter is narrated by Golden Globe Award-winning actress Gillian Anderson (The X-Files); an epic 26-part animated story of a strong, adventurous young girl who grows up exploring a beautiful and dangerous forest filled with mythical creatures. The daughter of a professional robber, Ronja realizes the complicated nature of her father's profession when she befriends Birk, the child of a rival tribe. Ronja struggles to balance the relationship with her family and the bond with her self-proclaimed brother Birk as she comes to understand the intricate issues of family and friendship and how differences can be overcome with the help of love and understanding.

Based on the "I Stink!" book series by Kate and Jim McMullan, The Stinky & Dirty Show follows the adventures and mishaps faced by best friends and unlikely heroes, Stinky the garbage truck and Dirty, the backhoe loader. The series is written and developed by Guy Toubes (The Adventures of Chuck & Friends, Littlest Pet Shop, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi) and animated by Brown Bag Films, Ltd (Peter Rabbit, Octonauts, Doc McStuffins). Season one of The Stinky & Dirty Show features original music from acclaimed folk singer and songwriter Dan Bern and celebrity voice talent, including Whoopi Goldberg (The View), Jane Lynch (Glee), Andy Richter (Arrested Development), Joan Cusack (Shameless) and Wallace Shawn (Toy Story). The newest original preschool series to foster lifelong creative learning, the series' curriculum was developed by Dr. Alice Wilder and Jessica Lahey, author of the New York Times best-seller The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed, on which the curriculum is based.
