Gear up! Big B meets Star Wars!
Amitabh Bachchan as an animated character? Now that’s one thing to be excited for. And Amitabh Bachchan as an animated character based off Star Wars? That’s something to hyperventilate for. But this dream like news is actually reality. Amitabh Bachchan is all set to portray an animated character based on Star Wars series, adapted for India on Disney Channel
Amitabh Bachchan took on to Twitter to announce the name and the first poster of the animated series titled “Astra Force”. Astra Force is very clearly based on Star Wars as Amitabh and two little kids are seen holding light sabers in their hands. Also, someone vaguely resembling Darth Vader is also present in the back ground. Big B’s rendition is looking like a slightly younger version of himself.
When you are 73 these are the kind of people you meet... You meet kids, they are the happiest persons. We pass the age of youth, study, university, girls, marriage, wife, children... Now is the age of grandchildren," Bachchan told a news portal.
Amitabh Bachchan who himself is the grandfather of three beautiful kids, is going to play a grandfather with great power and strength. "It is a lovely phase, a lot of people say the best phase of an individual's life is when he spends time with grandchildren. I will endorse that... Therefore this (playing superhero 'Astra') fitted into my mind...," he added.
Amitabh Bachchan is said to have given inputs for the way his character should look to the makers. Astra Force will go on air in early 2017.
