Even as we wait for part two of Baahubali to hit the theatres, there’s something else for fans to enjoy, from the same franchise.
On Friday, 30 September, Amazon Prime Video announced a collaboration with filmmaker SS Rajamouli, Graphic India and Arka Mediaworks, for a new multi-episode animated series titled Baahubali: The Lost Legends.
The trailer for the series has been launched on the Amazon.in site.
“What we managed to showcase in the film was just the tip of the iceberg,” said director SS Rajamouli explaning why the animated series has been conceptualised. “From the minute I started working on this story, I knew the world of Baahubali can’t be encompassed into a film or two, simply because there’s so much more to tell and animation is another way to do that.”
Graphic India’s Sharad Devarajan promised the new series would be filled with “political intrigue, betrayal, war, action and adventure” and would take audiences on “new adventures beyond the film, as we learn for the first time the events that shaped Baahubali from a young prince into a legendary hero”.
