Arya' Teddy, first Tamil film to use Indian animation

It also becomes the second Tamil film to use motion-capture technology, to bring to life a teddy bear

Published: 11th March 2020

Arya's upcoming fantasy-comedy with director Shakti Soundarajan, Teddy, is in the news for a special reason. It becomes the first Tamil film to use an Indian company to entirely design a special animated character. It is also the second Tamil film to use motion-capture technology, to bring to life a teddy bear.

Director Soundarajan says that Teddy is not an animated film like the Rajinikanth's Kochadaiiyaan, despite the use of motion-capture. The technology has apparently been used only for one particular character. The team roped in an artist to bring the special character, which will appear for 80 minutes, to life.

Shakti Soundarajan's last film Tik Tik Tik, a space-based theme, was also heavy on animation.

A few weeks back, the makers of Teddy released the song En iniya thanimaye from the film, which is a one-of-its-kind 3D lyrical video. The song has music composed by Imaan, lyrics by Madhan Karky and has been sung by Sid Sriram.

Scheduled for a summer 2020 release, Teddy features real-life couple Sayyeshaa and Arya in the lead.
