Miami based Motion Pixel Corporation (MPC) and Cornerstone Entertainment of India have finalized the signing of one of India’s most prolific cricket players to star in a new animated movie titled Captain India.
The story entails Yuvraj Singh growing up in Mumbai and encountering a magical cricket stick which he realizes has special powers and uses it to help fight crime and also becoming an Indian Cricket Star to help India win the cricket World Cup.
The movie is currently in preproduction and is scheduled to be released in early 2012. “We felt Yuvraj was the best fit for the project which we think will be a mega hit with all the Bollywood and Cricket fans not only in India but throughout the World,” commented MPC Chairman, Manny Bains.
“Cornerstone has always made best efforts to promote brand Yuvraj as uniquely as possible. This project is one such opportunity for Yuvi to reach out to the millions of children across the countries who aspire to be like him one day. We are happy to partner with MPC and are looking forward to an entertaining movie” said Bunty Sajdeh of Cornerstone Entertainment.
Yuvraj Singh commented “I am extremely excited to be a part of this movie. As a child I always enjoyed watching animation films and today I am humbled to be portrayed as an animated character. It is such an entertaining film which I hope all families will enjoy watching together.”
