It isn't just Disney that is dipping into feature animation on the sub-continent:
Turner Entertainment Networks Asia, part of the Time Warner group has tied up with three Indian production houses - Miditech, Graphiti Multimedia and Famous Studios - to develop localised animated features in the country and to make the features, which will be released next year, foreign media reports inform.
"The Indian animation industry is in a nascent phase and it's now important we help it to take its rightful place on the international stage, I think it will be fitting that very, very soon one of the next animated superheroes comes from India." said Ian Diamond, General manager, Turner Entertainment Networks Asia.
We'll have to wait and see where all this burgeoning activity leads us. More work here? I'm not holding my breath...
