Evolution arrives on Canal J...
Posted by Shaka on 11/16/2013 at 14:27
This Saturday we're writing a little about the airing of Code Lyoko Evolution in French on Canal J. Let's start with the necessary disclaimer. Many people in recent months have taken the TV guides as the absolute truth and have thus conveyed false information. We haven't yet verified the truthfulness of the following information with our professional contacts, and as a consequence, we're taking it with a grain of salt. Be careful. Now to the news:
It was announced on a trustworthy source that Code Lyoko Evolution would air on Canal J in November 2012. It's obvious to say that the channel has taken its time. The first episode that will appear on the channel will be, of course, XANA 2.0. It will be aired on the 30th of November. Canal J has seemingly opted for a convoluted diffusion rhythm as 2 episodes are aired each weekend. A first Saturday at 8pm, a second Sunday at the same time... See the French version of this post for the full programme. Follow Jim!
But what's more surprising is what comes after. After two weeks, an episode will be aired each day...at 3:45am, starting at episode 9...
To summarise, a jump over 7 episodes from Sunday to Monday and then one episode per day in the middle of the night. In other words we probably shouldn't think too much of this schedule...but it should be mentioned as if it's true, episode 20 could well be aired for the first time in French next month...i.e. Friday the 13th of December at 3:45am...
Unless France 4 keeps the rights to air episodes first and Canal J starts from episode 1 after airing episode 18... But what does this mean for the English-speaking fans, exactly? Well, I do believe I can hear the faint sound of the Subsonics drifting in the air...if you know what I mean. To be continued...with a sceptical eye.
News on Moonscoop's Exports
Posted by Shaka on 10/25/2013 at 15:03
The Sydnicat des Producteurs des Films d'Animation (Syndicate of Animated Films Producers) has just, via the site animation-france.fr, published a newsletter on the latest news in the world of animation. The ideal opportunity to put down a little information on Moonscoop, its different franchises, and especially the ones that interest us, Code Lyoko and Code Lyoko Evolution. In our great wall of text, you will find a lot of information that your super Code Lyoko site (i.e. US!) has already relayed to you such as the arrival of Code Lyoko Evolution in Greece and Italy.
Here's the link to the article. Here, we've translated the extracts concerning Moonscoop and Code Lyoko, so that you don't have to go through the whole article.
"Moonscoop has finalised agreements with Clan TVE and Canal Panda on the airing of seasons 1 and 2 of Chloe Magique. The series The Fantastic 4 was bought by France 4 and by the new German children's channel Yep. The renewals of seasons 1 to 3 of Code Lyoko and the acquisition of Code Lyoko Evolution were negotiated with RAI Gulp and the pre-purchase of Burney's Odyssey with Rai Yoyo. In Finland, MTV3 renewed rights to Geronimo Stilton 2, and Teletoon Poland renewed Tara Duncan and Titeuf. In Sweden, SVT bought season 2 of Casper's Scare School and, in Greece, Megachannel launched Code Lyoko and Chloe Magique in September. In the USA, Moonscoop sold The World of Todd and Dive Olly Dive to Qubo. The Hispanic channel Somos TV renewed Ava Riko Teo for Central America."
"In Asia, Moonscoop signed a global deal with the telecommunications company Viettel on the entire catalogue (1200 half-hours) available in Vietnam. Elsewhere, Disney Korea and Korea Telecom Hitel bought the rights to season 2 of Chloe Magique and a package deal was reached with TrueVisions in Thailand for 350 half-hours of programmes (Titeuf, Bunny Maloney, Ava Riko Teo, Dive Olly Dive, Gasp, The Davincibles...)."
Note in the paragraph here that Code Lyoko's arrival in Vietnam may be soon!
"(...) season 2 of Jungle Book (52x11') by Moonscoop and DQ Entertainment (...) will be launched on TFou during the 2013/2014 season"
"BRB Internacional and Moonscoop concluded a deal reciprocating their catalogues in VOD and as digital media. BRB will manage Moonscoop's properties on the Iberian Peninsula and the Spanish-speaking territories, Moonscoop will manage BRB's in France and in French-speaking territories."
"Bangoo's SVOD application, by Moonscoop, is now present in the main Android stores. It's also promoted and shipped on children's Lexibook and Teknofun tablets."
"Sold in more than a hundred territories, Geronimo Stilton is a partnership between Atlantyca Entertainment and Moonscoop, with Rai Fiction, France Télévisions and M6."
And there you go! A long list that really proves that the Moonscoop Group is still going strong, despite what we've heard from the media in the past months. On the subject of the famous quarrel within Moonscoop that has been relayed through the press in recent months... The newsletter also has a paragraph on that:
"The production and distribution group Moonscoop is in receivership since the 20th of June. Benoît and Christophe di Sabatino were dismissed on the 31st of July from their respective duties as a member of the Supervisory Board and CEO. They remain employees of the company. In early August, the Commercial Court of Paris has expanded the powers of the administrator in charge of the company, Mister Gérard Philippot, so that he may become its representative."
In other words, contrary to what some overzealous people have been peddling, the Di Sabatino brothers are still active in the Moonscoop company. Company which isn't doing too badly. The stir in recent months is indeed a conflict between shareholders of internal nature.

Code Lyoko Evolution in the country of pizza!
Posted by Kerian on 10/10/2013 at 22:34
While we sometimes have a pizza to accompany an episode of Code Lyoko Evolution, for our neighbors in Italy, it's the other way around.
Indeed, the channel Rai Gulp just bought the rights to air Code Lyoko Evolution.
This info was relayed to us by Quentin Merabet, Ulrich's actor, via his Twitter.
As soon as we know more, rest assured that we'll let you know.
Keep your eyes open... for news on CodeLyoko.fr of course!
Code Lyoko heads to Greece
Posted by Kerian on 09/25/2013 at 15:11
While the Greeks' anger brews over their economic crisis, Moonscoop decided to send their best messenger to fight XANA, because what else could explain the unprecedented crisis? Nothing, as it must be our "dearly beloved" virus we all know well that's behind all of this.
In short, bad joke aside, it's now to our Greek neighbours to enjoy Code Lyoko (and not yet Code Lyoko Evolution) via the site megatv.com.
Thanks to Wilson for the information and have a good week, everyone... On CodeLyoko.fr of course!
Some new info on CLE's September return!
Posted by Kerian on 09/05/2013 at 11:14
Good day everyone!
After several months, and with numerous rumors from other sites circling around, Code Lyoko Evolution will soon be returning on the small screen in September on France 4.
Don't forget to take this information with a grain of salt, TV schedule sites are far from being infallible.
We will keep you up to date with any possible new info.
Remember that the only place for reliable info is on Codelyoko.fr, elsewhere there is only supposition.

Good evening again!
And yes, some days, the number of news posted reaches new heights! And this is the case today with another little newsflash! We are going to speak of a related product interesting enough for those who can appreciate it. The Code Lyoko glasses/mugs (6 glasses + 1 pitcher to be exact): where are these from? From the mass production of related products made by the Spanish during the years 2010/2011, the time when the series was a huge success over there. These glasses are coming to France for a VERY limited time. They are for sale in "Babou" stores throughout France. If you are interested, hurry up, because they could disappear very quick after their circulation.
Here is a little picture to illustrate:

Good evening on codelyoko.fr
Trailer for CLE's arrival in Belgium on OufTivi
Posted by Etienne on 09/04/2013 at 12:06
The first news of this new decade of Code Lyoko is already here! And it is about the Belgian airing of Code Lyoko Evolution with a trailer from the channel announcing the airing of one episode each Sunday.
Code Lyoko is 10 years old... September 3rd, 2003, episode 01 "TeddyGozilla" was aired on France 3. And we were all 10 years younger... Where were you then? How old were you then? What part of your childhood did this cartoon occupy? Who have you met? What has changed in your life? For the oldest of us, surely a lot of things! So, let's hope that this will continue with the youngest of us for a long time to come. I'll without a doubt give a very long speech, but I imagine that it's to each to find within himself, and all that, yadayada...
In short, we've all been very moved by Code Lyoko. To celebrate the event, we have scheduled several small things (Well, you know us, hah =P)
From your point of view, this will be a little less "big" than for the 5 million visitors celebration in January or the birthday of the site in July. But believe me, in terms of the number of hours of work, this wasn't little for us. You will enjoy 3 big news posts today of which this is one! And that makes 4 if we count the exceptional release of the chapters yesterday.
To start, naturally, we'll reveal to you a section that has been entirely remade. It was a simple site page before... and of a rather mediocre quality considering that we never were really busy with it. It has now become a robust section of our site: It is the "Story of Code Lyoko".
But it's not the story of the cartoon, of XANA and all that! Nope! It's the story of the Code Lyoko franchise... The history if you prefer. Do you want to feel nostalgic? Do you want to revisit all the various grand stages of the construction of the Code Lyoko empire? This file is made for you. It currently regroups old pages already existing on the site (Like Garage Kids or the Reloaded file) and new ones created for the occasion. Follow the guide:
CLE will be coming to our Belgian friends every Sunday!
Posted by titi060 on 08/26/2013 at 12:30
Code Lyoko Evolution continues its global expansion! After France, Hungary, and Romania, CLE is heading to Belgium starting September 1st, 2013 at 5:55pm on "la trois" channel of the group RTBF.
To promote the series, the website of the children's block of channel "OUFtivi" has dedicated a page to Code Lyoko Evolution. There we have noticed that CLE will be aired every Sunday, and we also found there an already well-known video - the original French trailer to Code Lyoko Evolution, but for the first time is in high definition unlike the one from France 4 and the English trailer's video was slightly different than the French one:
And lastly, here are some new, official wallpapers to check out on the site:
(With all the updates to the site, this news passed by right under our noses at first, oops)

Our community's got talent #17
Posted by Queen on 08/16/2013 at 23:00
Hey there! This week's our community's got talent only applies to the French side of the site, but we do have a couple of related things to offer you instead!
First off, with regards to last week's entry, we are now able to give you the translated versions of the instructions on how the Yumi season 4 and Aelita season 4 cosplays were created. Unfortunately all the tutorials they refer to are in French, but their explanations can give you a head start on making your own cosplay.
Secondly, a word on the Gems section. Since all the fanfictions on it currently are in French, we need English ones to replace them on our side of the site. I'm pleased to tell you that we're getting plenty of suggestions on our dedicated Tumblr page (codeenglish) and we should have some English fanfiction writers in the Gems section sometime soon!
