Pilar's Diary - 3D Animated Series | Nat Geo Kids
Pilar's Diary animated series will release on 17th February at Nat Geo Kids!
Inspired by the best-seller books written by Flávia Lins e Silva, the co-production between Mono Animation and Nat Geo Kids tells the story of Pilar, a 10 years old little girl who wants to meet the whole world and cultures.
Pilar, her cat Samba and her friend Breno go into a magic hammock and travel to different worlds and times, like Greek, China, and the Andes cordillera. Everywhere they go, they come across mythological creatures, unusual habits, surprising flavors. When they come back, they are changed, they see the world through different eyes and they share the lessons learned with their friends at Guavaland (Goiabão) – a vacant lot, where the gang meets to play and chat.
At age 10, Pilar views the world in a unique way. She is constantly asking questions and she doesn’t accept things as they are. Super curious, She has a thirst for knowledge and that’s the reason why she jokes about suffering from "geographic greed". Not even the words in the dictionary seem to be enough for her, who is always inventing new words and even swear words. On each trip, she learns something new and faces small changes that she embodies into her daily life. She has a whistle collection to attract birds, and keeps many objects in her super-pocket that seems to be endless. She plays the guitar and sings in Guavaband (Goiabanda). She loves playing with her friends at Guavaland, a vacant lot next to the building where she lives.
Diario de Pilar
Breno is Pilar's best friend and also her neighbor. They are both members of the Guavaland gang. Unlike Pilar, he is quite rational and more suspicious than her. Full of crazy ideas, he always finds new purposes for things that already exist or tries to create new things.
Pilar's cat loves to eat and is quite curious. He tries all kinds of food and falls easily in love with the creatures he meets along the way. He is fearful, but when it comes to protecting Pilar, he is the first one to attack, almost like a "watch cat".
She is crazy about music and she always has her headphones on. She wears jogging clothes, DJ style. She is upbeat, always positive and doesn't argue with anyone. Open-minded, she believes music can solve everything. A little distracted, sometimes she doesn’t even notice the problems around her. She plays the percussion in Guavaband.
She’s 10 years old and lives in Pilar's street. She is very into numbers and is always working with numbers. Fairly rational and organized, she is always neat and doesn’t like getting dirty. She plays the keyboard in Guavaband and helps organize Tapioca Festivals and gang's meetings.
He is athletic and sports enthusiast. He likes running, playing tennis, riding, and loves a good competition. A bit competitive, sometimes he picks on others and challenges everyone to beat him at a race or any other kind of competition. He plays the bass in Guavaband.
Pilar creates special videos to show us a little bit more of her world!
Pilar and her friends Breno and Samba prepare a special gadget to the Magic Hammock, test the limits of her Super-Pocket and she shows us her favorit things, including her Favorite Foodand how did she find her "watch cat", Samba. Take a look!
