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

—Thomas Astruc, Comic to fans

Thomas Astruc is the creator and a co-director, producer and 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]

At JapansTours37 in a conference with Thomas Astruc it was revealed that, at one point, Thomas wanted to do 'real' work and study to become an engineer or dentist rather than an animator and writer.[6]

Thank you all for your #4YearsOfMiraculous birthday wishes !

You're the best ! I wish you the happiest time watching the future mind-blowing episodes !

—Thomas on Twitter about the 4th Anniversary of Miraculous

A whole episode is being spoiled at SDCC.

If you're not there, do yourself a favor and don't ruin the experience by watching it on such poor quality on social networks. As for those who're doing lives of it, well, you know what I think of spoilers...

—Thomas on Twitter about the whole episode spoiled at SDCC 2019

For years now I lied carefully to preserve some key surprises.

All for nothing. Frankly, after 10 years of extreme hard work, hoping to show that we can do great stuff in 🇫🇷, popular yet clever, not necessarily kids-only oriented, I'm a bit discouraged.

—Thomas on Twitter about the RTS season 3 synopsis leak

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
