Nigeria’s first-ever feature-length animation film — Ladybuckit and the Motley Mopsters (LBMM) — is set to hit theatres on Friday, December 11, 2020. Hot Ticket Productions, the company behind the 3D movie, released an exciting one-minute teaser to whet the appetite of movie lovers ahead of its premiere.
Most of the storyline is still being kept under wraps. However, the movie’s website reveals that it revolves around “a precocious, self-absorbed little girl who finds herself in wildly unfamiliar territory. There, she encounters a band of highly unusual characters who change the course of her destiny.”
The movie boasts of industry heavyweights such as Kalu Ikeagwu, Patrick Doyle, Bimbo Akintola, Bola Edwards, and others. It will also feature fresh voices of 11 and 13-year-old Jessica and David Edwards. The movie’s original 14-tracker album was developed by popular music producer and songwriter, Clement ‘DJ Klem’ Kponu and versatile film composer, Ava Momoh.
Nigerian entertainment and media industry is estimated to hit the 10 billion-dollar mark by 2023. And Forbes has stated that African animation industry is fueling the emergence of a creative economy across the continent. It is hoped that with the release of Ladybuckit and the Motley Mopsters by Hot Ticket Productions, Nigeria will further cement its position as Africa’s leading film producer and a global force in creative storytelling and entertainment.
