Rajamouli said, “What we managed to showcase in the films was just the tip of theiceberg.  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.  We are happy to be collaborating with Graphic India and Amazon to bring the ‘Lost Legends’ to audiences through Amazon Prime Video.” 

Baahubali: The Lost Legends is an animated series created in partnership with leading character entertainment company Graphics India and Arka Mediaworks.  Baahubali: The Lost Legends is set before the Kalakeya invasion depicted in the ₹600 crore blockbuster movie.  The series will take the viewer back in time as a prequel to the movie narrative; with a focus on the young lives of Baahubali and Bhallaladeva. The narrative revolves around the two brothers competing to rule the greatest kingdom of its age, and the epic adventures they must endure to prove they are worthy of the crown.

One would go on to become king, and the other would go on to become a legend. Experience the secret stories from the world of Baahubali in this all new animated series. 

Two brothers competing to rule the greatest kingdom of its age and the epic adventures they must endure to prove they are worthy to one day wear the crown. A new animated series created by visionary filmmaker Rajamouli and Indian superhero creator, Sharad Devarajan.
