Speaking about the film, CEO of Waadi animations Sharmeen Obaid Chinnoy says: “When we set up Waadi animations we wanted to create characters and stories that could be shared with the world.
The visuals of Lahore in Sitara, the bustling markets and the throw back to the 1970s will evoke a sense of nostalgia. This story will resonate with girls who dare to dream big.”
With the release and success of 3 Bahadur series, “Allahyar and the legend of Markhor” and recent blockbuster “The Donkey King”, the future for animated films in the country promises to bright. Now we sincerely hope that Sitara also proves to be another good addition to list of succesful animated films made from Pakistan.
Sitara is expected to hit cinemas in Summer, 2019.
