Summary of new shows on Prime Video
‘Baahubali: The Lost Legends’
Before the war with the Kalakeya, before Katappa killed Baahubali and before the death of Sivagami, two young brothers competed for the throne. One would go on to become king and the other would go on to become a legend. Kids can watch new episodes every week starting 19 May. The show is available in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
‘Atchoo’ (Season 1)
The story of Teo, a 9-year old boy who has a strange way of expressing his emotions; he turns into an animal, every time he sneezes. How his transformation essentially creates troubles in his life and brings the house down in effect is essentially the crux of the plot of the show. It is available in both English and Hindi.
The first animated show featuring Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role as an animated mythical hero, Astra the Immortal. When two eight-year old twins accidentally awaken an ancient super-warrior from the past, they must join him in saving the world from a new wave of giant monsters and supervillains determined to rule the universe.
‘Munki and Trunk’ (Season 1)
One is crafty. The other is caring. But they are the best of friends. No matter if they are facing rolling boulders. Bouncing mushrooms or grumpy hedgehogs – they do it together.
From the makers of ‘Ben 10’ and ‘Big Hero 6’, ‘Zak Storm’ is the new leading action franchise, set in the Bermuda Triangle with pirates, aliens, great adventures and comedy.
