SANTA MONICA Antonio Banderas' Spain-based production shingle Green Moon Productions has teamed with Spanish animation studios Kandor Graphics to create a new toon production house.

The still unnamed company aims to make five animated features over the next 10 years.

The 50/50 joint venture kicks off with the already-in-production "The Missing Lynx," which is directed by Kandor partners Manuel Sicilia and Raul Garcia, a former animator for Pixar, Disney and DreamWorks.
