Commenting on the output deal, Marquet said: “We are delighted to be teaming up with Scanbox and to develop a relationship across an exciting line-up. Scanbox is a leading distributor in the region, with an eclectic and tasteful style that matches Studiocanal’s, and we’re certain it will be a great partner.”
