Cartoon Network bring Stan Lee’s latest superhero to Indian audiences
Comic book legend Stan Lee’s first Indian superhero is being brought to life by Cartoon Network, Graphic India and POW! Entertainment in an hour-long movie entitled Chakra: The Invincible.
The 66-minute movie will premiere on Cartoon Network in 34 million Indian households on November 30. It tells the story of Raju Rai, a young Indian boy living in Mumbai. Raju and his mentor, the scientist Dr. Singh, develop a technology suit that activates the mystical chakras of the body. When Raju dons the suit, he discovers superpowers and vows to use his newfound abilities to protect and serve.
On top of the partnership with Cartoon Network, Chakra: The Invincible was also recently selected as part of a handful of third-party content partners to soon be featured on Angry Birds creator Rovio Entertainment’s new ToonsTV platform, which has drawn more than a billion views since its launch in March.
Beyond animation, Graphic India will also be launching the character in a series of digital and print comic books and graphic novels as well as through toys and merchandise.
