My dear Miraculers... why are you so awesome?

—Thomas Astruc, Comic to fans

Thomas Astruc is the creator, a co-director, a producer, and a writer for Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir.[1][2][3]

Career

Thomas worked on Code Lyoko, W.I.T.C.H., and Season 2 of The Daltons as a storyboard artist, and on Totally Spies! as the storyboard supervisor. He is also known for his work as a storyboard artist on Wasabi (2001) and Asterix and Obelix Meet Cleopatra (2002). At some point while Miraculous was being made, he was a guest artist for LoliRock on the episode "Batty", storyboarding the second half of the episode and revising the episode's script.[4]

Currently, aside from working on Miraculous, Thomas is working as a script doctor and co-author on Mélody Cisinski's upcoming animated movie, Revolution.[5]

Quotes

You really, really should avoid the recent spoilers leak.
Spoilers set your mind on certain expectations. Then you will analyze the episodes through this mindset instead of enjoying it without preconceived ideas. Spoilers build hype, but damage the experience.

—Thomas on Twitter about recent TF1 press conference

Dear Miraculers, if your question can be answered by "no spoiler", then it's certainly the answer ^^

—Thomas on Twitter

Miraculous is one of the cutest, purest and most positive shows ever made. And you are the nicest and most creative fan community ever!

—Thomas in a letter to fans

In MLB, villains have defined powers. So when heroes understand the rule, a weak point appears. Heroes always should outsmart the villains. If villain can be beaten by strength, it means hero is stronger. If hero is the strongest, it means villain wasn't a real threat.

—Thomas on Twitter about villains
