Saudi cinemas to release Saudi-Japanese animated film “The Journey” on June 17th
RIYAD: Cinemas across Saudi Arabia are preparing to release “The Journey”, Saudi Arabia’s first 4DX animated film, on June 17.
The manga epic “The Journey”, co-produced with Japan, received a certificate of release and classification from the General Audiovisual Commission (GCAM).
The film was produced by Manga Productions in Saudi Arabia, a subsidiary of the Misk Foundation, and Toei Animatio in Japan.
The film will be the first release to benefit from new ticket sales rules designed to help Saudi filmmakers.
Directed by the famous Shizuno Kobun, “The Journey” was shot using anime-style animation and took two and a half years to make.
Set around 1,500 years ago, the film presents the ancient civilizations of the Arabian Peninsula and the Middle East. It follows the story of Aws and the people of Mecca who are forced to take up arms to free themselves and their city from the slavery of a ruthless general.
