As you already know, after two seasons and three special episodes, the WAKFU series is back for a third season. We're on the right track to thrill you with visual delights and stories that warm your heart, but there's still a long way to go. As usual, we've been looking for a solution that's a little more off the beaten track... Fully financing an animation project without compromise is a real struggle. Finding the right partners, discussing with them, trying to convince them and tempering the changes they would like to make takes time. On the other hand, we do have one solid pillar: Our community. You like what we do, the way we do it, and we already have your support. Who better to form a partnership with than you? The WAKFUNDING concept As we've already said, progress on WAKFU season 3 is coming along well. But if we want to maintain the same level of quality until the end, we need to find some additional funding... So, how can we continue this project with the same ambitions and freedom, counting on you, BUT without asking you to contribute more than you already do on a daily basis? The answer's simple. WE'RE the ones who are going to offer you even MORE! How about if we offer you some new items and packs? And what if these exclusive items and packs finance our latest ambitions for WAKFU season 3?

Starting production for season 3 took an enormous amount of effort. For reasons relating to orders and budgets, this season only has 13 episodes. The two distributors who pre-ordered the series from us are Netflix and France 4. As France 3 is no longer involved, the allocation we receive from France Télévision Group's budget is twice as small, for a season that has to be two twice as successful, technically speaking. Luckily, in France, we can receive assistance from the CNC, but this is dependent on the amount of money invested by distributors. The higher the budget, the more assistance you can get from the CNC. As it stands, the financing we receive from the distributors is too low, and we could potentially not be able to receive this assistance. We therefore find ourselves in a situation where, to continue our series, we have to find alternative solutions. Wakfunding's aim is to achieve the following points: Complete these 13 episodes with the quality they deserve; Prove to the CNC that our series receives sufficient funding to be eligible for assistance; Find out if a system of this type could be used to finance the next 13 episodes. How is WAKFUNDING coming along after the first two weeks? Up until now, it's looking pretty positive! Above all, we want you to know that we're staying level-headed about this. We've always been aware that it would be difficult to raise the remaining budget for season 3 in one month. Nevertheless, we can see that the community is reacting very positively and showing a lot of enthusiasm, which gives us hope for the future. It's still too early to proclaim a victory, but up to now, players are answering our call for help, and there's every chance that we might be pleasantly surprised. Why not put the season 3 Blu-Ray box set up for pre-order? The Blu-Ray will be produced by the France Télévision group. For the time being, we don't yet know how many copies there will be, or what languages will be included on the disk. What's more, we still have to sign international distribution agreements, which can limit our room for maneuver with regards to shipping the Blu-Ray to certain countries. Wakfunding is an international project, but we don't have enough visibility to be able to commit to shipping the Blu-Ray on a global scale, and we don't want to have to back out of our promises. Don't worry, though, the series will be internationally available via other channels, starting with Netflix. The series will be localized depending on the geographical distribution zones.
