Galavant To Shoot At Bottleyard

News Image
The Bottle Yard Studios in Bristol can has revealed it will be home to the major US TV series Galavant, produced by Disney’s ABC Studios, when it shoots in the UK later this summer. Pre-production has begun this week at the studios, which offer the largest film and television production space in the west of England. Shooting will begin in August.

ABC Studios began discussions with The Bottle Yard Studios earlier this year when it chose the Studios as production base for the making of Galavant’s pilot. Screenwriter/executive producer Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love, Tangled, Cars) has teamed up with a Broadway and Hollywood award-winning musical team – Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast) and lyricist Glenn Slater (The Little Mermaid, Tangled) – to work on the project.
Galavant stars Joshua Sasse as Galavant, Timothy Omundson as King Richard, Vinnie Jones as Gareth, Mallory Jansen as Madalena, Karen David as Isabella and Luke Youngblood as Sid.
Fiona Francombe, MD of Bottle Yard, said: "We were quietly proud to have been home to the Galavant pilot earlier this year, and we’re thrilled that ABC Studios have now decided to base the full series at The Bottle Yard Studios. To have secured a booking from a major international studio like this is confirmation that our facilities are competing at the highest level against other spaces in the UK production scene."
"We decided to base Galavant at The Bottle Yard Studios in Bristol because we were confident we’d get a first class service from Fiona Francombe and her team," said Helen Flint, UK Producer. "The studio is conveniently situated for Bristol and the great locations that surround the city."
