Amazon Prime Video has tied up with the renowned filmmaker SS Rajamouli, Graphic India and Arka Media Works to make Baahubali into a multi-episode animated series. The series would be called ‘Baahubali: The Lost Legends’. The series will premiere on Amazon Prime Video in the year 2017. Amazon Prime Video hasn’t been launched in India yet but is tying up with various Indian producers to telecast their shows. Karan Johar of Dharma Productions has also tied up with Amazon Prime Video.
SS Rajamouli, the director of many hits like Baahubali, Eega and Magadheera, earlier said that he would release a comic series based on the movie Baahubali. The comic series was supposed to go in-depth of the story and would show the various sides to the story which the movie could not show. The same would be shown in the animated series. The series will be developed and directed by Rajamouli.
“What we managed to showcase in the film was just the tip of the iceberg”, said Rajamouli. “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,” he added.
With the growing anticipation for Baahubali 2, this news will add to it.
