Italian animation studio Gruppo Alcuni has recently launched a new Pet App for Samsung’s Galaxy S III mobile phones via developer Melazeta. The app was made in support of the hit European animated movie Pet Pals: Marco Polo’s Code, and contains characters from said movie.
The app, which has been redesigned for the Android mobile OS, lets children and their parents have fun in the enchanting world of the Pet Pals, where they can watch the movie interactively, sing along with the characters, explore the Venice canals, and even exercise their artistic chops with the coloring book activities.
The movie that the Pet Pals app was based on is currently performing well at the Spanish box office, ranking 8th in the country’s box office charts and making half a million euros in the past four weeks. The movie was directed by Sergio Manfio and co-produced by Gruppo Alcuni and Edebe Audiovisual. Gruppo Alcuni is already working on the 3D stereoscopic sequel to the film, under the working title Nameless Adventures in Windland, and targeting a delivery date of fall, 2013.
