The Netflix has announced Baahubali Prequel Series that will partly be an adaptation of The Rise of Sivagami, a prequel novel to the 2015 film Baahubali: The Beginning. The show will be called ‘Baahubali: Before the Beginning’ and has already been given a two-season order. It’ll be produced in partnership with film director S.S. Rajamouli and the original production house Arka Media Works.
Here the official description from the Netflix: This (prequel) series captures Queen Sivagami’s journey from a rebellious and vengeful girl to a wise and unequalled queen. Power, politics, and intrigue find themselves juxtaposed against the rise of Mahishmati – from being a city-state to an empire. This is the rich backdrop and drama where the Baahubali franchise is set. The series promises to build on the incredible narrative style of the franchise – including its high production values, spectacular visuals and connective-epic story-telling.
“We have been working for over a year now in developing this story, a prequel to the films as a Netflix original series,” Prasad Devineni, Arka Media Works producer added. “We are happy to be partnering with Netflix to produce this amazing story. This partnership gives us the reach and the creative freedom to bring to life the full potential of the series in all its grandeur and exceed the high expectations set by both our films.”
