Disney+ Puts the Spotlight on African Animation Talent with “Kizazi Moto

Disney+ has recently released “Kizazi Moto: Génération Feu,” a series of sci-fi animated shorts created by young African creators from Egypt, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. The series is set in a future version of Africa and presents ten futuristic visions inspired by the continent’s diverse histories and cultures. The release of “Kizazi Moto” is a significant milestone for the African animation industry, which has been growing rapidly in recent years.

The series was created in collaboration with pan-African entertainment company Kugali and supported by the co-director of “Spider-Man: New Generation,” Peter Ramsey. Ramsey was approached by Triggerfish, a South African animation studio, about a potential collaboration with Disney+ and was immediately drawn to the energy he felt from the young creators. He believed that capturing that energy and showing it to the rest of the world would be something special.

“Kizazi Moto” is a game-changer for the African animation industry, which has been working hard to develop and gain recognition. The release of the series is a validation of years of grassroots work across the continent to develop the animation industry. Raymond Malinga, the Ugandan creator of the “Herderboy” short in the series, said that “sometimes it feels like we’re not given a chance, and this is a chance”.

The release of “Kizazi Moto” is a “watershed moment” for the African animation industry, according to Marie Lora-Mungai, founder of creative sector advisory firm Restless Global. The series brings together a new wave of animation stars to take audiences on a wildly entertaining ride into Africa’s future. The series promises to be a unique and exciting viewing experience that showcases the talent and creativity of young African animators.

Disney+ plans to release another science-fiction animated series set in a future version of Lagos, Nigeria, created in collaboration with Kugali. The series is part of Disney’s efforts to extend its reach into Africa and tap into the continent’s growing popularity. The African animation industry is poised for significant growth in the coming years, and Disney’s investment in the industry is a testament to its potential.
