Cosmos-Maya’s ‘Motu Patlu’ set to take a leap
MUMBAI: Animation studio Cosmos-Maya’s IP ‘Motu Patlu’ will take a leap with the theme, ‘The Adventures of Motu Patlu in Europe’. The studio also put out the first glimpses of the European destinations that Motu & Patlu would visit during this trip.
“As IP creators and brand custodians of Motu Patlu’s highly popular and iconic audiovisual content, it is our endeavor to take the brand to the next level and push the boundaries of animation quality as we take the brand further,” said Cosmos-Maya founder Ketan Mehta.
Cosmos-Maya has thus produced over 800 episodes and 20 films of the Motu Patlu franchise. The studio also recently launched two spin-off series from the Motu Patlu franchises namely ‘Inspector Chingum’ and ‘Guddu’.
Both the shows regarded for their high-quality animation are presently airing on Amazon Prime Video. While Inspector Chingum was recently also launched on the Disney Network, Cosmos-Maya is yet to announce the Pay TV partner for ‘Guddu’.
“We are fortunate that we have been working well with all the major platforms in the business and have been able to get the right partners for each of our shows,” said Cosmos-Maya CEO Anish Mehta.
The studio has a strong focus and is unrivalled when it comes to successful Indian animation IPs. Selfie with Bajrangi was yet another successful IP that the studio launched last year and has been doing rather well within a short span of launch.
“Our biggest strength lies in identifying the audience pulse and blending in a mix of familiarity with novelty. The fact that the platforms support us in our creative vision, gives us a constant motivation in this IP creation journey”, added Anish Mehta.
