International animation house Princess Bento Studio to open in Australia

The producers behind Bob’s Burgers and Superwog are joining forces on Princess Bento Studio, which will create 150 full-time technical and creative jobs in Victoria’s animation sector.

Animation nerds of the world (and particularly Victoria) unite: a brand new animation studio is opening its doors in Melbourne this year. Victorian Creative Industries Minister Danny Pearson said he was ‘proud to welcome Princess Bento Studio to our state and screen community, and the 150 new jobs it creates.’

Pearson reiterated the Victorian Government’s support for this initiative, saying that, ‘We look forward to seeing more Victorian-made animation projects hitting the screen.’
