TEHRAN – The Rezwan Animation Studio based in Tehran has produced an Iranian version of the popular Japanese animated series “Ganbare, Kickers!”.

The first season of the series titled “The Golden Foot” is composed of 13 seven-minute episodes, the director of the Studio, Asadollah Dianati, who is also the producer of the series, said in a press release on Monday.

The series targeting adolescents has been produced to promote manliness of spirit and ethics in sport, he added.

Directed by Noruz Abbasi, “The Golden Foot” is about Salman, a teenage Iranian soccer player who is employed by the Portuguese ambassador to teach his son, Roberto, Persian. Roberto realizes that there is a local football league in Tehran and suggests that a team composed of foreign envoys’ children play with a team of top Iranian teenage soccer players in a charity match.

“The animation also promotes peace and friendship among various cultures and nations,” Dianati said.

A team of outstanding Iranian voice actors directed by Hojjat Shokat has given voice to characters in “The Golden Foot”. The group had lent their voices to the characters in “Ganbare, Kickers!”, which was broadcast several times on Iranian TV.
