Online movie streaming giant Netflix has announced a new Netflix Original Series based on the global blockbuster Baahubali, the highest grossing film franchise from India.
The two season order, Baahubali: Before the Beginning, will be a prequel to Baahubali: the Beginning and Baahubali: the Conclusion. Season one of the series will comprise nine episodes and is based on Anand Neelakantan’s book, The Rise of Sivagami.
This (prequel) series captures Queen Sivagami’s journey from a rebellious and vengeful girl to a wise and unequalled queen.
Netflix has partnered with the ace team behind the Baahubali universe, including Arka Media Works and SS Rajamouli. Deva Katta and Praveen Sataru will together direct the series.
“The World of Baahubali is extensive and immersive with strong characters and larger than life kingdoms. The films Baahubali -The Beginning and The Conclusion, are from one story set in this world and more dramatic stories were broadly conceived while building the Universe,” said Director SS Rajamouli.
“The Baahubali Series, a prequel to the films, is one such story. I am very excited that this is being adapted as a Netflix Original Series. With Netflix as our partner, we have the opportunity to create a rich and riveting series and take this quintessential Indian epic to the world, which is very gratifying to me as a story-teller,” he added.
According to Prasad Devineni, Producer, Arka Media Works, the work on prequel to the films as a Netflix Original Series was going on for over a year now.
“The series is a tremendous opportunity for us to give audiences more of the universe that they have come to love, and welcome millions more into the global Baahubali fandom,” said Erik Barmack, VP, International Originals, Netflix.
