Pakistan's first animated film '3 Bahadur' to be released in 2015
The child adventure movie’s first look was revealed in a press conference at a local cinema attended by President and founder ARY Digital Network Salman Iqbal and CEO Waadi Animations Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy.
A homemade treat for Pakistani kids, the movie will enthrall children of the country with characters, terrain and environment identical to the one they are living in.
Pakistani children who till today were watching foreign animated movies will have a lot to identify themselves with in 3 Bahadur.
‘3-Bahadur’ follows the adventures of three friends who set out on an epic journey to save their town from the evils that plague it. Equipped with courage and super powers, Amna, Saadi and Kamil (the main characters of the film) battle against the odds to restore peace and harmony in their once thriving neighbourhood.
ARY Digital Network founder and President Salman Iqbal was of the view that time has come to bring children forward. In the wake of the recent Peshawar attack, it is necessary to make Pakistani children realize that they do not need to be a super hero to make an impact. Every child has extra ordinary powers, they just need to discover it to make a positive impact.
He said that ‘3 Bahadur’ is the first full length animated film of Pakistan and it is dedicated to Pakistani kids as they are already brave.
Salman Iqbal is also serving as the director of ‘Waadi Animations’
Waadi Animations CEO Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, said, “Almost three years ago, I had an intense desire to create an animated feature in Pakistan, which would appeal to both children and adults alike. I have to admit, venturing into the realm of animation was unchartered territory for my team and I, but everyone quickly warmed up to the idea and we began learning the ropes and assembling a team of some of the best animators in the country to work with us. We are proud to announce and share the fruit of our hard work and efforts; Pakistan’s first animated feature film!”
The movie will be released in May 2015.
