PewDiePie has teamed up with Disney and other popular YouTube stars to launch his own network.
The venture is called Revelmode and it is, in the words of its founder, “me and a bunch of really awesome YouTubers coming together as a group to do awesome things.”
Joining PewDiePie (also known as Felix Kjellberg) are CinnamonToastKen, CutiePieMarzia, Dodger, EmmaBlackery, JackSepticEye, Jelly, Kwebbelkop, and Markiplier who between them (as AdWeek points out) have more than 100 million social media follows. Their first joint project will be a cartoon featuring them all as animated characters.
The ‘network’ will operate under Maker Studios, who Disney bought for nearly $1 billion back in 2014.
Yes, Disney even owns this. You can’t escape Disney. Don’t try!
