Neil Gaiman's short story Cinnamon to be made into animated film by Sharad Devarajan's Graphic India

Noted author Neil Gaiman on Saturday announced that his widely-loved short story Cinnamon has been turned into an animated film.

For the upcoming English-language film, which is about an Indian Princess and a talking tiger, the author has partnered with Sharad Devarajan and Graphic India.

The goal of Gaiman's film, according to the New York Times best-selling author, is to immerse viewers in the fantastical world of Cinnamon. His other works of fiction include Coraline, The Sandman, American Gods, and Good Omens.

Directed by noted Indian animator Jeevan J Kang, Gaiman has adapted the screenplay for the animated movie with Devarajan, Sarena Khan and Sujatha SV. Devarajan and Kang have previously created and produced the hit animated series The Legend of Hanuman.

The official synopsis of Cinnamon says, "Born with pearl eyes that render her blind to the physical world, Cinnamon’s destiny is shaped forever when a mysterious talking tiger appears. Offering to lead her through the wonders and trials of the wild, Cinnamon begins a perilous adventure that will shape her path and test her resolve. She enters a hidden realm where the line between the mundane and the mystical is as thin as a whisper and where the ancient wisdom of India breathes life into a jungle thrumming with secrets."

The author said in a statement, "I am thrilled to be collaborating with Sharad Devarajan and his exceptional team on ‘Cinnamon.’ Sharad’s passion for storytelling and his deep understanding of Indian culture and mythology makes him the perfect partner to bring this tale to life."

He also added, "Together, we are crafting a film that will transport audiences to a world of magic, wonder, and eternal truths, a story that celebrates the transformative power of compassion and the resilience of the human spirit. I cannot wait to share this incredible journey with animation fans around the world, old and new.”

Devarajan expressed his excitement on partnering with Gaiman and said that he is one of the greatest storytellers.

Cinnamon is produced by Gaiman and Cat Mihos for The Blank Corporation and Devarajan, Khan and Kang for Graphic India.
