This is just the start of what KRU International plans to accomplish. The company already has five 3D animation films and three animation TV series in development.“We want to show that a Malaysian company can produce shows that can play in international markets and do well. We want a production with universal appeal. That’s the key for us,” said Powers.

Ribbit is KRU International’s first step into the animated feature film industry and has already garnered sales to over 80 countries worldwide including UK, Germany, Australia, Japan, China and Brazil. The movie is slated to be released worldwide in the fall of 2014.
