Zsazsa Zaturnnah vs the Amazonistas of Planet X

If you haven’t heard it yet, the Filipino queer icon ZsaZsa Zaturnnah is going to have an animated film titled ‘Zsazsa Zaturnnah vs. the Amazonistas of Planet X’!

On March 16, Saturday, Rocketsheep Studio uploaded a BTS video on their Facebook page with the caption, “It takes ages to make an animated film. We are now in year 4 of production for Zsazsa Zaturnnah so we put this sizzle reel together to remind us of our progress. We can’t wait to finish this film & share it with the universe ❤ Zsazsa Zaturnnah is the story of a shy gay man who swallows a magical rock that transforms him into a flamboyant female superhero!”

The video shows the initial sketches plus colorful of the animation of the Filipino LGBTQ icon. If you grew up watching the film adaptation of this or even read the comics, then you will definitely get hyped for this upcoming animated version. And it looks promising, trust us!

For those of you who don’t know, the animated film is based on the Philippine LGBTQ graphic novel written by Carlo Vergara that became a cult classic and a queer favorite among queer Filipinos. 

The IMDB synopsis reads, “Ada is a shy gay hairdresser living in a small town in the Philippines. After many heartbreaks over many years, he had committed himself to a simple–and single–life. But when a magical stone from outer space transforms him into a flamboyant female super-hero, Ada is forced to face great challenges: from fighting zombies to stopping invading Amazonistas from Planet X to the even more difficult task of risking his heart to love again.”

The upcoming film is confirmed to be in English. It is helmed by Avid Liongoren who is known for his 2016 film, ‘Saving Sally’. 

Four years since the project started, the movie is still yet to receive a final release date or announce its voice actors. There is no other information on this film so be sure to follow Rocketsheep Studio on their official Facebook page and stay tuned to BLTai for more updates!
