‘Dawn of Thunder’ will pick up on the mythical character who according to folktale was the third Alaafin of Oyo and possessed magnificent powers.
“It’s an origin story which chronicles his life from birth till his eventual disappearance. We go back to where it all started, the questions he asked, the answers he was given, the visions about his future encounters and ultimately how these experiences will shape his future,” an excerpt from Komotion studios statement released in June reads.
The 3D animated film was filmed in 2018.
