NEW DELHI: The magnum opus 'Baahubali', a film that earned over Rs 6000 million in worldwide box office collections, is now being turned into a new multi-episode animated series titled – "Baahubali: The Lost Legends".

This was announced by Amazon Prime Video which has tied up wth acclaimed filmmaker SS Rajamouli, Graphic India and Arka Mediaworks.

"S.S. Rajamouli is one of the most visionary movie minds in current times and we are thrilled to have him launch this exclusive series, Baahubali: The Lost Legends," said Amazon Prime Video India Director and Country Head Nitesh Kripalani in a statement, adding, "The animation series will allow our customers to discover hidden stories and legends from the Baahubali world. And now for the first time, customers can watch the exclusive trailer first on www.Amazon.in"

"What we managed to showcase in the film was just the tip of the iceberg," said director Rajamouli. "From the minute I started working on this story, I knew the world of 'Baahubali' cannot be encompassed into a film or two, simply because there is so much more to tell and animation is another way to do that."

Graphic India Co-Founder & CEO Sharad Devarajan feels that filled with political intrigue, betrayal, war, action and adventure, the animated series will take audiences on new adventures beyond the film.

As a part of festive celebrations, customers can watch the exclusive teaser trailer of `Baahubali: The Lost Legends', the animated series, exclusively on www.Amazon.in only on 1 and 2 October 2016.

The animated series was conceived by S S Rajamouli, Sharad Devarajan and Arka Mediaworks, who will all be producers along with Jeevan J. Kang, Graphic's EVP Creative and the lead character designer for the new animated series. Graphic's senior animation writer, Ashwin Pande, will also be a producer.

According to Arka Mediaworks CEO Shobu Yarlagadda, "Having created so many iconic stories and characters, there is no one more equipped than Graphic India, to take the story of Baahubali forward. We are very excited for what's to come."

Baahubali: The Lost Legends is set before the Kalakeya invasion depicted in the movie, when Baahubali and Bhallaladeva are still both young princes of Mahishmati. 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. Under the watchful eye of Sivagami, and the warrior Katappa, one shall rise to be King of the throne, while the other shall become King of the people.

The animated series will feature new, never before revealed stories about the characters from the film including Prince Baahubali, Bhallaladeva, Kattapa and Sivagami as well as dozens of new characters that will expand the world of Baahubali and reveal hidden secrets for millions of fans, an official statement stated.
