Toronto, CANADA – Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana is excited to announce its upcoming in-restaurant promotion with BURGER KING® featuring premiums from its hit, animated urban fantasy series, Mysticons. Beginning today, four Mysticons mini-figures will be available to collect and own in the King Jr™ meals. The eight-week promotion will run in more than 7,400 restaurants across the U.S. and Canada.
