Miraculous – Tales of Ladybug Cat Noir follows the
adventures of two seemingly typical teens with secret identities,
Marinette and Adrien, who magically transform into superheroes, Ladybug
and Cat Noir. As secret superheroes, Ladybug and Cat Noir are partners
in the action. But in the daytime, Marinette is just a normal girl,
living a normal life. Cat Noir will do anything to support and impress
Ladybug, but does not know this is Marinette from his class. Marinette,
the regular girl, in turn dreams of Adrien and simply gets little
response. When evil threatens Paris, their beloved City of Lights, can
they beat the unexpected villains? Miraculous taps into first
love, secrets, friends, magic, duality and the romance of Paris.
