The Amazing Maurice producers Cantilever Media reunite with Sky Cinema to produce Bollywoof, where a very British Springer Spaniel gets lost in India!

The story unfolds around a very British springer spaniel lost in India, trying to find his human family. Basil the spaniel must team up with a streetwise Bollywood-obsessed street dog to survive.

The adventure is directed by Frederik Du Chau, the filmmaker behind 2005 animation Racing Stripes. It reunites The Amazing Maurice producers Cantilever Media with Sky Cinema, who will distribute the feature theatrically in the UK and Ireland in 2026, alongside France and Indian based animation studio Mikros Animation.

Mikros has credits spanning Orion And The Dark, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem and Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight.

“The movie’s story is epic – action-packed, emotional, funny and stacked with vibrant locations – its core purpose is to have great fun and celebrate the importance of friendship, and the true value of emotional connection, whilst basking in the vitality and warmth of India,” said Du Chau. “Artist Stephen Hanson’s intimate and joyful character design and visual development is inspirational.”

UK’s Newscope Films co-produces alongside Good Story Productions and Parti Productions. The script was developed with the support of the BFI.

Embankment Films are sales agent for the film worldwide.
