Baobab Studios is the leading VR animation studio. Our mission: Inspire you to dream by bringing out your sense of wonder. We will immerse you in fantastical worlds, introduce you to characters to fall in love with, and let you interact with these characters.
Founded by Eric Darnell (Director of all 4 Madagascar films), Baobab's Emmy-award winning VR animation, INVASION!, starring Ethan Hawke, launched to substantial critical acclaim and has become the top downloaded VR app. In a first, Hollywood is taking IP from VR to become a feature film: Roth Kirschenbaum Films (Maleficent, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White and the Huntsman) has signed to adapt INVASION! into a feature film.
Baobab’s 2nd VR animation, ASTEROIDS! starring Elizabeth Banks was an official 2017 Sundance Film Festival and Cannes Film Festival selection and won Best VR Experience at the Unity Vision Conference. Baobab's latest Rainbow Crow, starring John Legend, Diego Luna, and Constance Wu premiered at Tribeca Film Festival and Cannes this year.
Baobab Studios has raised $31M from leading media and tech investors.
