"Gaturro", made in India, wows them in Argentina
A steroscopic 3D animated feature film created by Toonz Animation’s Thiruvananthapuram ( Kerala) studios has topped the box office figures in Argentina. Released both in normal 3D format and in stereoscopic format the Spanish version of the movie “Gaturro”, received wide spread appreciation from all quarters of the industry.
Based on a well loved Argentinean cartoon strip, the 3D animated film brings to screen, the life of ‘Gaturro’ the cat, whose love for his neighboring cat Agatha constantly gets him into trouble. Hollywood, glitz, and glamour throw the adorable cat, with a little help from his furry pals, into a wild journey that ultimately leads to the realization that true love is all about being your real self. Created by cartoonist Cristian Dzwonik (“Nik”), the comic has been published in more than 30 books, magazines and comic volumes and has become a phenomenal success across Latin America. “Gaturro” includes not only the love story between the two cats, but an entire universe of fellow pets and humans that expands the franchise of characters.
“We are thrilled at this phenomenal response. After getting good reviews at this years’ Cannes, we had a gut feeling that the movie would do well. We had tried really hard to make it technologically at par with the best and also with an equally good story line. Plans are on to release the English and Hindi version in India by January next year” says Toonz Animation India’s CEO, P. Jayakumar.
