NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 11, 2023) — On the heels of releasing The Wingfeather Saga Season 1 Soundtrack, Nashville based Shining Isle Productions has begun production of the series’ seven-episode second season.
Season 2 continues the epic saga, based on the best-selling book series’ second novel North! Or Be Eaten.
