Persian Animation ‘Elephant King’ in 3 Languages

The Persian dubbing of the Iranian feature animated movie ‘The Elephant King’ directed by Hadi Mohammadian has started. The film which is still in the production stage will also be dubbed in three other languages and get ready to take part in the 35th Fajr Film Festival due in February 2017.
Produced by Hamed Jafari, ‘Elephant King’ is the new work of Honar Pooya Group, a private organization active in animation production. It is set to be released internationally in Arabic, English and French simultaneously with its screening in Iran next year, Mehr News Agency reported.
The animation is about a clumsy baby elephant. The story is set in Africa, where an elephant rules over its group like a king. The queen bears him a son and everybody expects the son to replace his father as heir to the throne, but the clumsy baby elephant disappoints them all.
There are 115 animated characters in the work, 60 of which will have voiceover.
Jafari and Mohammadian also cooperated in the animation ‘Princess of Rome’ about the life of a Christian princess, Malika, granddaughter of Caesar of Rome, in the 9th century, who became the mother of Imam Mahdi, the 12th Shia Imam.
Produced with a budget of $600,000, ‘Princess of Rome’ was released last year in Iran and taking in $1.2 million, it was ranked fifth in the yearly box-office list. It was also dubbed in Arabic and released in Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon and other Middle East countries.
“Like our previous work, ‘Elephant King’ is also made for children and young adults with an interesting story,” Jafari said.
Following the local and international success of ‘Princess of Rome’, expectations are high that the new musical animation will do well at Iran’s box-office as well as on the international arena.
