Queen Charlotte: a Bridgerton Story, the prequel to the wildly successful Bridgerton series from Shondaland has just released on Netflix, and Studio AKA’s very own Manddy Wyckens directed its enchanted Main Title Sequence. This hotly anticipated prequel tells the story of young Queen Charlotte's rise to prominence and her love story with King George.

The opening titles feature Wyckens' signature illustrative style, which perfectly complements the luxurious characteristics familiar to the Bridgerton universe, creating an elegantly seductive sequence. In beautifully minimalist fashion, the titles depict a series of enigmatic vignettes following Queen Charlotte through the palace grounds, each hinting at key moments from the series. The action meanwhile alternates between the young and old Queen Charlotte, using shadows and reflections to move between the two, evoking her journey to becoming a monarch. At the same time, the deliberately slow, cinematic pace, stylized framing and deft match cuts create a cohesive visual narrative that pulls the viewer into the story.

Studio AKA is proud of our team of talented animation artists who helped bring Wyckens' vision to life. It was a pleasure to collaborate with the production team on this exciting project, and we're excited to be able to share our part in the series as it reaches the screen.
