Iwaju Trailer Takes Viewers to Futuristic Lagos

Posted on March 4, 2024

Take an animated journey to futuristic Lagos, Nigeria in the trailer for Disney's Iwaju series.

The animated film features many flying vehicles including cars and helicopter-like crafts. The characters we journey with are Tola (from the wealthy island) and the self-taught Kole. They also have a cute gecko-like friend.

The series is directed by Olufikayo Ziki Adeola and produced by Disney Animation’s Christina Chen on a screenplay by Adeola and Halima Hudson.

Adeola says about the film, "Crafting the narrative of ‘Iwájú’ has been a journey of creative alchemy, blending the rich cultural tapestry of Lagos with imaginative leaps into the future. Collaborating with my Kugali co-founders and the visionary artists at Walt Disney Animation Studios has been nothing short of magical. The heartbeat of my hometown resonates through every scene, and I am thrilled for the world to experience this unique fusion of tradition and futurism."
