Picture production. Indian animation’s time has come

Haven’t you been captivated, sitting in a darkened theatre in the good old days, munching popcorn and watching sparkling animated movies that Hollywood kept churning out? Whether it was the adventures of the mouse who fancied himself as a chef in Ratatouille or the escapades of a bunny and a fox in Zootopia , or Tintin’s derring-do in The Adventures of Tintin , high quality animation has held audiences spellbound worldwide.

Now, Indian animators have a shot at the burgeoning market for animated movies. While movie-making was hit during the pandemic, animated media grabbed interest on various OTT platforms. For instance, a major animated Indian series that caught eyeballs was The Legend of Hanuman , streaming on Disney+Hotstar.
