Henson & Webtoon Plan “Lore Olympus”

Henson Webtoon Plan Lore Olympus

Web comic publisher Webtoon is teaming with The Jim Henson Company to turn Rachel Smythe’s “Lore Olympus” into a young adult animated series.

The current webcomic is a stylized, contemporary and vampy reworking of Greek mythology and more specifically the Persephone tale, and is the top title on the Webtoon platform with a weekly release schedule and more than a million hits per episode.

The partnership with the Henson Company represents Webtoon’s first adaptation deal since launching in 2014.
