Speaking about The Archies trailer, Director Zoya Akhtar shared, "Having spent a lot of my childhood living in an Archie Comic, I'm thrilled to introduce Riverdale to this generation. 
The characters are iconic, their teenage life innocent, the world simpler, a time when less was more. Archie Comics, Netflix, Tiger Baby and Graphic India were in complete sync and wanted the adaptation to be as wholesome as the original comic was. It’s clean young adult content and was very fresh for Reema and me to work on. It’s also very exciting that a global IP chose the Indian film industry to make its first feature. Excited to get it out there.”

Adding onto that, Monika Shergill, Vice president for Content at Netflix, shared, “The Archie comics, with their timeless charm and universal theme of friendship was a loved IP to adapt to the Indian cultural tapestry. We set out with the ambition to make a live-action film with an Indian twist, and Zoya and Reema were the perfect choice to bring the story to life. They are incredible storytellers and have made a film full of colour and heart, fantastic characters and toe-tapping songs. The Archies is truly a family entertainer with a touch of delicious nostalgia."
