Cartoon Network launched two 3D animation shows—Pandavas and Sinbad—at a press conference on Tuesday. The two shows will be aired on the channel beginning September 8.
According to Turner Entertainment’s general manager and senior vice-president Mr. Ian Diamond, the exclusive premiere of these two shows will also mark the launch of Cartoon Network’s new programming franchise ‘Toonami’. Produced by Pentamedia, Pandavas and Sinbad have been created using the latest real-time motion capture 3D-animation technology.
Mr Kailashnath Koppikar, head of marketing Pentamedia said that on an average a 90-minute animation film costs around $10 million. Cartoon Network, which has acquired the cable rights for two of Pentamedia’s shows, refused to divulge the acquisition cost.
