Cristiano Ronaldo Becomes a Superhero in Striker Force 7


International soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo will be gracing the small screens soon, not as an athlete but as a cartoon superhero. This comes courtesy of a new deal signed with Graphic India and VMS Communications, under which a new sci-fi athletics/superhero property called Striker Force 7 will be produced. The deal was mediated by agency Polaris Sports.

The Striker Force 7 property will be launched on a wide variety of platforms and medium, including animation, comics, books, games, and digital content. Ronaldo himself had a hand in the creation, with help from Sharad Devarajan. They will both serve as executive producers along with Diego Guarderas of VMS Comm., Polaris Sports and Jeevan J. Kang, EVP Creative and lead character designer for Graphic India.

“I have always been a fan of superheroes and I’m thrilled to help to create this new animated series,” commented Ronaldo. “In the same way football connects cultures and people around the world, I believe great animated characters and heroes can do the same and that’s why I am excited to bring together these passions of football and superheroes through this project and share it with my fans.”

“Cristiano Ronaldo has inspired millions of people around the world with his dedication, work-ethic and all-around epic game playing. ‘CR7’ is a real-life superhero to a generation and Striker Force 7 will bring together a global team of characters from our world (and others), that are representative of the diversity and coolness of his millions of fans,” added Sharad Devarajan, series producer and CEO of Graphic India.
