Made by Method Films and Lux ‚Äč‚ÄčAnimation (which took care of the particular movement technology), Skyland is a cartoon consisting of 26 episodes lasting about 25 minutes, based on the story written by Mathieu Delaporte, Emmanuel Gorinstein and Alexandre de The Patelli re. It is broadcast on Rai Gulp from Monday to Friday at 8.45 am and 15.40 pm.
A novel by David Carlyle was also drawn from it, which refers completely to the cartoon in the drafting of the plot.
The main peculiarity concerning the animated series is the technique used for its realization: it is in fact the so-called "motion capture", able to record the movements of each character starting from the real ones of a person equipped with particular sensors.

The history of Skyland
We are in the year 2251: the planet Earth no longer has its original form, as it has exploded and divided into small fragments, suspended in the void (the Skylands, in fact).
One of these bears the name of Babylonia: Mahad and Lena live here, together with their mother Mila. The latter is a Sejin, or a particular category of people with telepathic powers, or capable of moving objects with thought. These powers are powered by sunlight. Furthermore, the Sejin are able to create spheres by channeling their energy.
One of these "The Sphere" is the union of the powers of the Sejin guardians who serve it. It is an organization of the most powerful leaders of Skyland, who keep all the fragments (and therefore the whole earth) under control using these people. Furthermore, the dominion of the leaders is strengthened by their control over the water. In this particular era, in fact, this resource is very precious. The regime is a real dictatorship, where those who oppose, even if only in words, risk their lives.
The main exponent of this dictatorship is Oslo, the most powerful of all the Sejin as it is exposed both day and night to sunlight, unlike the others.
The story begins when Mila, realizing the cruelty of the organization of the sphere, opposes, being kidnapped, but managing to make her children escape. The latter take refuge in the peripheral areas of Skyland, among the Pirates who oppose the regime.
