All 13 episodes of the show will be available in 7 languages – Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Bengali, Malayalam and Kannada; and will release exclusively on 6th August 2021 on Disney+ Hotstar.
Sharad Devarajan, Co-Creator of the series and Co-founder, Graphic India said, “The response received by the first season of The Legend of Hanuman was amazing and humbling and has been a milestone for original Indian animation. The heroism of Mahabali Hanuman means so much to the world and so much to all of the people who worked on this project. With the latest season, we take the story to greater heights with another chapter in Mahabali Hanuman’s life and his first encounter with the demon King, Ravan which is brought alive through captivating visuals and comprehensible language. As he learns to wield his newfound power, it is a story of inner growth and heroism that we hope is relatable and inspiring to everyone.”
Though Hanuman faced great dangers in the first season, he was not alone. He had the strength of Angad to support him, the wisdom of Jambhvan to guide him, and even the antics of Nal and Neel to lift his spirits when times were dark. But now, Hanuman must face his greatest threat completely alone as he journeys across the sea to the golden city of Lanka. Will his new divine powers be enough when tested against the fury and might of the demon king, Ravan and his fierce sons and armies? Yet even in the darkness, Hanuman shall have one light to guide him, his faith and strength from Ram. This is the story of a humble vanara finally awoken to embrace his true power and wisdom to become an immortal legend. This is the story of Hanuman!
The legend of Hanuman Season 2 will launch exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar.
