The Legend of Hanuman Story
The animated series is the combined efforts of creators - Sharad Devarajan, Jeevan J. Kang, and Charuvi Agrawal with the storyline carved by writers Sharad Devarajan, Sarvat Chadda, Jeevan J. Kang, and Shivangi Singh.
The story begins with a humungous venomous snake demon prowling an attack on Lord Ram, his brother Lakshmana, and Hanuman. Following the life-threatening attack by Ravana’s son Indrajeet, the story switches to a flashback sequence, where Hanuman emerges victorious after warding off a demonic creature. It also follows the cruel and tyrannical ruler Ravana declining the peaceful treaty between him and Ram. This led to the battleground shivering with the onset of the epic war. We also get to see a glimpse of the beautiful Sita imprisoned in the Ashok Vana as Ravana tries to weaken Lord Rama with trickery and deceit. The episodes aim to establish the war era and the consequences that led to the atrocious attacks with the role of Hanuman and the entire Vanar Sena as they all put their lives at risk to serve Lord Ram.
