TEHRAN – The Honar Pooya Group, the producer of animated movies “The Elephant King” and “Princess of Rome”, has entered into a contract with the Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults (IIDCYA) to produce its new project entitled “Extinction”, the IIDCYA announced on Tuesday. 

Set in Iran, the story of the animation is about wildlife and the environment.

This is the third feature-length animated film produced at the Honar Pooya Group, a Tehran-based private company that was founded by a group of young animators in 2007.

“Extinction” will be directed by Hadi Mohammadian, who helmed Honar Pooya’s previous movies “Princess of Rome” and “The Elephant King”.

“Princess of Rome” grossed over 50 billion rials at the box office in 2016 and became the fifth highest-grossing movie nationwide.
