Meghan Markle finally started working with Netflix again for a special animated series.
After leaving her senior royal post, Meghan Markle began focusing on the opportunities she could do in Hollywood. One of the works that could help them become financially independent is to work with the biggest streaming platform.
On the official website of Archewell, it revealed that Meghan and Prince Harry’s Archewell Productions will create its first animated flick with Netflix.
The series, titled Pearl, will explore the story of a young girl’s journey as she becomes inspired by influential women.
The Duchess of Sussex will, reportedly, work as an Executive Producer of the series. She will be working alongside Dan Cogan, Amanda Rynda, David Furnish, Carolyn Soper, and Liz Garbus.
“I’m thrilled that Archewell Productions, partnered with the powerhouse platform of Netflix, and these incredible producers, will together bring you this new animated series, which celebrates extraordinary women throughout history,” Meghan said.
She also expressed her desire to work on the project with Furnish for months now. The Canadian filmmaker is famous for his works like the movie about Elton John’s life, Rocketman.
More opportunities for Meghan
The announcement of the upcoming series came after the Duchess released her children’s book The Bench in June. She based it on a poem that was initially made for her husband, Prince Harry.
Meanwhile, Pearl serves as their second project with Netflix. In 2020, they signed a multi-year deal with Netflix to create documentary series and children’s programs.
The Duke of Sussex, on the other hand, will be part of the upcoming documentary series Heart of Invictus. It will follow the story of competitors in the Invictus Games which the royal himself launched in 2014.
Following these updates, chairman/founder of InterTalent Rights Group Jonathan Shalit referred to the deals as something historical.
“Yes, independence and a role they clearly want in life has been achieved with the Netflix deal,” he said. “Prince Harry and Meghan have a right to happiness and a right to carve their own path in life.”
Amid their success, the Sussexes suffered from criticisms even more. Per Shalit, many people believe that the Duchess crashed herself into the royal family. She also, allegedly, tried hard to change the whole monarchy.
