Discovery Kids Latin America has swooped on Russian animated family feature The Snow Queen 2 and plans to air the film in Spanish across its territories later this year.

The deal, closed at MIPTV, follows the launch of The Snow Queen, the first in the franchise from Moscow-based animation studio Wizart, which aired on Discovery Kids Latin America in 2014.

"Discovery Kids prides itself with offering the best content for children in the pay-TV industry in Latin America, and we are very happy to count The Snow Queen 2 among this select collection of properties," said Flavio Medeiros, Discovery Kids' director of program sourcing and acquisitions. "We look forward to the launch of the new installment of this extraordinary movie, which is already a proven success among our young audience."

The Snow Queen 2 already has a presence in more than 70 countries, and was released in North America last year by eOne.
