Cortex founder and managing director Peter Proud said the “elastic nature” of Microsoft Azure, the software giant’s cloud-based platform used to host the content, meant “the sites will be able to handle very high levels of traffic from around the world”.

Cortex is part of advertising and communications group WPP and collaborated with fellow subsidiary Hogarth on the project for Saban, which is also set to launch a new television series, Power Rangers Dino 
Super Charge, next year.
