Popular French animated show Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir — also known as Miraculous Ladybug or simply Miraculous — is getting a feature-length animated musical, Variety reported. The movie will be directed by the show’s producer, Jeremy Zag, with music by Grammy-winning composer Harvey Mason Jr.

Created by French animator Thomas Astruc, the show follows two teenagers gifted superpowers through magical objects. Marinette — or Ladybug — has powers of good luck, while her counterpart Adrien — or Cat Noir — has bad luck powers. Though they know each other in real life and their superhero alter egos work together, neither of them know of the other’s identity. Marinette has a crush on Adrien, Cat Noir has a crush on Ladybug. Hilarity ensues as the two try to save the world.

Though it is a French show, Miraculous enjoys a hefty international fanbase. It regularly clocks in the Top 10 TV shows on Fandometrics, Tumblr’s weekly buzz tracker for all things fandom. In the United States, Netflix acquired the streaming rights. The show’s third season is currently airing in France, but has not made its way to Netflix yet.

The animated feature is tentatively entitled Ladybug & Cat Noir Awakening and is described as a romantic fantasy adventure. Previously, Skydance Media secured the rights for a live-action film, though no development news on that front has been announced.

Correction: A previous version of this story misstated Jeremy Zag’s role in the show. He is currently the show’s producer, not creator. We’ve edited to reflect this.
