To mark the launch of media device Fire TV Stick in India, Amazon Prime Video announced the launch of animated series Baahubali: The Lost Legends for its Prime members. This comes days ahead of the theatrical film release of Baahubali 2. Created by SS Rajamouli, Graphic India and Arka Mediaworks, audiences can now watch the premiere episode, as one of Amazon Prime Video exclusive series.
Fire TV Stick is a streaming media device that plugs into an HDTV and provides access to thousands of streaming movies, TV shows, apps and games. For a limited time, Prime members who purchase a Fire TV Stick receive ₹499 credit back to their Amazon Pay balance. Customers enjoying a 30-day Prime free trial receive the credit when they purchase an annual membership. The all-new Fire TV Stick is available from www.amazon.in/firetvstick and select retailers across India for just ₹3,999 (including tax).
“Our association with a visionary like SS Rajamouli is what will differentiate our content in India for discerning audiences. We are sure this Amazon exclusive Baahubali: The Lost Legends will be a special animated series that is sure to capture one’s imagination. The timing is perfect as we announce the launch of Fire TV Stick with voice remote; the best way to watch Prime Video,” said Nitesh Kripalani, Director and Country Head, Amazon Prime Video India. He added, “Our aim is to solve the problems our customers face and with Fire TV Stick, customers can watch our latest and exclusive movies and TV shows from the comfort of their living rooms.”
Filmmaker S S Rajamouli said, “What we managed to showcase in the films was just the tip of the iceberg. From the minute I started working on this story, I knew the world of ‘Baahubali’ can’t be encompassed into a film or two, simply because there’s so much more to tell and animation is another way to do that. We are happy to be collaborating with Graphic India and Amazon to bring the ‘Lost Legends’ to audiences through Amazon Prime Video.”
Baahubali: The Lost Legends is an animated series created in partnership with leading character entertainment company Graphics India and Arka Mediaworks. Baahubali: The Lost Legends is set before the Kalakeya invasion depicted in the ₹ 600-crore blockbuster movie. The series will take the viewer back in time as a prequel to the movie narrative; with focus on the young lives of Baahubali and Bhallaladeva. The narrative revolves around the two brothers competing to rule the greatest kingdom of its age, and the epic adventures they must endure to prove they are worthy of the crown.
