MASERU — Movie lovers will have to wait a little bit longer to watch The Forgotten Kingdom after its launch date was pushed by a further six months.
The launch was initially scheduled for January this year but according to the film’s director, Andrew Mudge, fans will have to wait for at least six more months to watch the movie.
“I cannot tell you the exact date when the film will be launched in Lesotho, but it will likely be late 2012 or early 2013,” Mudge said.
Mudge told XpressPeople he is currently working on the film’s colour and sound features in Johannesburg, South Africa.
“The editing is done; we are finishing up with the colour grade and sound design and the job is being done by a South African company called The Refinery,” he said.
The Refinery is one of the top film houses in South Africa and has worked on films like Spud and Tsotsi.
The company will also do subtitles for The Forgotten Kingdom, which is a 105-minute feature film.
Mudge said there were a couple of finishing touches to be done in New York, the United States, before the film could be officially launched.
He added that the original music score, which is being produced in New York, won’t be done until the middle of June.
“When that is finished, I will return to Johannesburg once more to do the final mix, put in all the credits and only then will the film be done,” he said
Although there were possibilities of changing the name, the title of the film still remains The Forgotten Kingdom.
Mudge said he had worked on the film full-time over the past two years and he was confident that the end result would be a polished product that can compete with any movie made in South Africa.
He said: “ All these details of getting the sound right, re-recording dialogue, putting in visual effects such as snow in the mountains takes so much time but our objective is to launch a film that will be mind-blowing with quality.”
