Originally, Disney's Zokkomon was scheduled to debut in May of 2010 but it was held back to April due to scheduling conflicts with Bumm Bumm Bole, another film that stars child-actor Darsheel Safary. With almost a month away til its release, a trailer has debuted online. The verdict? Ho-hum was my immediate reaction. I know its a Disney production so I understand it must be clean and family friendly but wheres the cool superhero action? C'mon, they can do better than just a flying chair.
Zokkomon is the thrilling and heart-warming live action adventure of an ordinary boy who finds the strength to face extraordinary challenges. Kunal, played by Darsheel Safary, is an orphaned boy, who discovers how cruel life is when he is abandoned by his heartless uncle. Left to fend for himself, Kunal discovers the hero within and begins his epic journey of adventure and transformation to become Zokkomon.
The Bollywood superhero film hits theaters in India on April 22nd. You'll find the trailer embedded below.
