Toonz Animation launches Return of Hanuman


Toonz Animation India Pvt Ltd is pleased to announce the launch of our first Indian 2D animated feature film ‘Return of Hanuman’. The feature film is a sequel to India’s first 2D Animated movie ‘Hanuman’. The 90-minute film is a co production between Toonz Animation and Percept Picture Company. The film will be released on the 28th of December across India.

The script has been written and directed by renowned director, Anurag Kashyap. The quality of the feature film will set a benchmark in the domestic animation industry. The story is about the rebirth of Hanuman as young ‘Maruti’ on whose shoulders lay the fate of humankind. The plot has been conceived keeping in mind the contemporary world. ‘ We felt that Indian mythology has lots of values to deliver in today’s world and we need to teach our younger generation the importance of our traditions’ says Mr. P.Jayakumar, CEO Toonz Animation.

The branding of the movie has been done on a 360-degree level, with tie-ups for gaming and merchandising with the likes of Pantaloon, Big Bazaar, Jump Games for mobile gaming, Future Group for Toys, D’damas for Jewellery, and Junior Diamond for Comics.
