After the Ramayana, now it is the turn of the other Indian epic – the Mahabharata to be reborn as Japanese Manga. Hyderabad based Panel Studios is coming out with a 90 minute long feature film called Little Pandavas and they seem to have effectively used the Manga illustrative style for the characters. The film has been directed by Rudra Matsa, the Founder of Panel Studios, who has also written the story for the film. The Animation director is Charan Reddy Desai. Character designs have been created by Rudra Matsa and Charan Reddy Desai and the backgrounds by N. Pawan Chandra. The film is being produced by Nitin Sidamsetty and Rudra Matsa.
