It looks like the G.O.A.T. argument between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo won’t be ended anytime as Deadline reports that Argentinean football captain has teamed up with Sony Music Entertainment to develop a new animated series modeled after him.
This report comes on the heels of Messi winning the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and it’ll follow him as a child navigating life’s obstacles while travelling. It is aimed at children and young adolescents.
The animated series will also feature original music from Sony Music Entertainment artists and composers.
Lionel Messi had this to say about the animated series:
“Since I was a kid, I’ve always loved animated series and my kids are big fans of animated characters. Being able to participate in an animation project makes me happy, because it fulfills one of my dreams. I would like to thank Sony Music for joining this project and we hope that everyone will like the result, especially the girls and the boys.”
Fernando Cabral, EVP, Business Development, Latin-Iberia Regional, Sony Music Entertainment, had this to say:
“It is a privilege for Sony Music to collaborate with Lionel Messi on this project to showcase the power and lessons of sports in partnership with the greatest football player of all time and one of the greatest athletes in history. We look forward to bringing this heartwarming and humbling series to screens for audiences of all ages around the world.”
No release date has been announced for the project yet.
