Waadi Animation will be coming up with its debut film and Pakistan’s first full length feature film ‘3 Bahadur’ which will be a super hero flick, releasing in May 2015.
The story is on friendship, teamwork and courage and aims to inspire the next generation to realise that they hold power to change the future of Pakistan. A dedicated website will be launched for the movie. Waadi Animations is also working on a game for Android, Windows and iOS platforms.
This apart, a children’s book and weekly comic strips will be launched to show the side adventures of the gang. The engagements will begin from January 2015.
3 Bahadur has been produced entirely in Pakistan and the music has been composed and produced by Shiraz Uppal. Waadi Animations is a joint venture of ARY Films and SOC Films.
C Peek Freans Gluco by English Biscuit Manufacturers is the main sponsor while Safeguard by P&G and McDonald’s Pakistan are co-sponsors. “We are proud to be bringing the first animated feature film ‘3 Bahadur’ under the banner of Waadi Animations, aimed at bringing quality entertainment to our little cinema fans. ‘3 Bahadur’ will definitely set a culture of making inspirational movies for children in Pakistan,” said ARY digital network founder and president Salman Iqbal.
Waadi Animations CEO Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy said, “I believe that ‘3 Bahadur’ is going to be groundbreaking because it provides quality entertainment for the whole family. Children will be mesmerised by unlikely superheroes, menacing villains, and fumbling thugs. Both children and parents alike will be able to relate to the everyday issues faced by the animated film’s main characters. The film is a result of several years’ worth of hard work and collaboration with exceptional illustrators, writers, animators and visual effects artists. We have also been very lucky to have the support of our sponsors who want to see quality content for children being produced and distributed in Pakistan.”
