After making waves in South Korea, The Donkey King has set its course to Spain.

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 haves its Spanish premiere on October 4.

Just seen the Spanish version, it’s exemplary, appreciation for Aziz Jindani, this animation deserve an award. More languages versions be floated in market say in Chinese, Russian, French,German,Persian,Tamil, Hindi,Bengali, and many more. A special version on Kashmir situation can also brought up, to apprise the situation and human rights abuses in Kashmir. It’s the most decent way to send message to the world audience, and affect the opinions such that truth is accepted on lighter mode of condemnation, no matter how crucial is the situation. The novel way of expression of freedom exercised by Aziz Jindani will serve the humanity , and convey messages of goodnesses.
