Jamie Lang “Arcane” producer Fortiche Production revealed its next project at the Annecy Animation Festival today, a sci-fi animated feature titled “Penelope of Sparta” set in a world inspired by Greek mythology.

Currently in development, “Penelope of Sparta” is Fortiche’s first push into original feature film production. The film is being directed by studio co-founder and “Arcane” producer Jérôme Combe and Silvia Martelossi, an animator on “The Secret Life of Pets 2” and “The Grinch.” Raël Lyra is the film’s art director.

According to Fortiche, “‘Penelope of Sparta’ will utilize the studio’s unique graphic signature – mixing 2D with a painted visual made in 3D – that has proven appeal among animation fans worldwide and garnered multiple critical acclaim.” Further reinforcing the “Arcane” connection, “Penelope of Sparta” is being developed with screenwriter Amanda Overton, an executive story editor for nine episodes of the Emmy and Annie-winning Netflix series.

With today’s announcement, Combe told Variety, “We felt a strong desire to embark on an original project and to create a feature film specifically designed for the cinema, following the success of ‘Arcane.’ In an era where most projects are reboots or based on existing IPs, our challenge was to develop something original while staying on familiar ground for audiences.
