"THE SOUTH SAGA" is an adventure story inspired by ancient tales from the oral and written tradition of Chile. A fantasy that crosses historical elements and the popular folkloric imaginary. In some cases tangentially and in others as a source of inspiration in the creation of characters and the plot.
A star that falls in the middle of a battlefield, the legend of an emancipating cacique and the myth of the Titans of the Ocean and the Mountains, that shaped the earth. They are key elements in the construction of this story that becomes a journey to save the world from the wrath of a Titan.
Discover the imaginary of the remote south of the world!
LAFKEN is the leader of the South Army. During the decisive fight to banish the RED SHIELD empire, a fireball from the mountain range falls on the battlefield, leaving the outcome of the war on hold. The incident leads LAFKEN in search of answers. The COURAGE of XRENG-XRENG, Titan of the Mountain, has been expelled from his body like a projectile because of the evil warlock PIUCHEN who seeks to leave the earth defenseless against the attack of KAI-KAI, Titan of the Ocean, and thus be able to take revenge on who cursed him. To restore balance, LAFKÉN must bring COURAGE back to the heart of XRENG-XRENG, on a long journey to the volcano where it lies. Leaving his army at such a decisive moment will not be an easy task, but he has the support of his comrades-in-arms and friends he has met throughout his journey. Upon learning of LAFKÉN's absence at the front, his enemies will seize the opportunity to try to reconquer the colonies lost during the emancipation and regain control of the southern lands.
"The South Saga" is a 2D animation project that starts in 2022 with the idea of becoming a series. That year we started making a dossier and a demo-teaser from the work of almost 10 years before! This led us to create "Jupiter Studio" (Santiago de Chile - Barcelona) and to partner with the first production company, "El Médano Producciones" (Madrid). In the short term, “MGC” (Canarias) and “Orlok Films” (Euskadi) were added. From these alliances and thanks to the sponsorship of ICEX Spain, the opportunity to participate in MIFA 2023 (Annecy) was born. There we had the opportunity to show the intro that we had been working on a few months before and we received very positive feedback! This push has motivated us to continue advancing in creating more pre-production content and adding people to our team of artists, animators, musicians, producers, etc. Soon we will have more news!
We are a multidisciplinary work team that starts in 2017 with the production of the animated series for Cartoon Network L.A. "Las Aventuras de Ogú, Mampato y Rena", based on the original comic by the famous Chilean cartoonist, Themo Lobos.
Currently we have started to push our new project "La Saga del Sur", an animated adventure series featuring ancestral creatures, brave warriors, steampunk machines and giant robots. A fantasy inspired by ancient tales and legends of Chile and the Wallmapu.
