That’s right, Aziz Jindani’s animated political satire is all geared up to have a wide theatrical release in over 50 screens across the country, and will be dubbed in three languages – Spanish, Catalan and Basque – and titled El Rey Burro, El Rei Ruc and Asto Erregea respectively. The trailers for both the Spanish version and the Catalan version are already out!
This is the first Pakistani film to be released in Spain.
Said Jindani, “We are ecstatic that Donkey King has found resonance with global cine distributors. It is proof that a good story, grounded in universal insight, has the ability to transcend boundaries and geographical barriers. We are not done yet though… Spain se aagay jehan aur bhi hain (there is a long way ahead after Spain too).”
The Donkey King will have its Spanish premiere on October 4.
