India has yet another Oscar connection. Animation film Alpha and Omega has been included in the list of movies eligible for Oscar nominations. The film is India-based Crest Animation Studios’ first CGI Animated 3D Stereoscopic film and has been co-produced by Lionsgate Inc, one of Hollywood’s leading distributors. The film has already been released in 25 countries so far.

“We are proud to present to the Indian audiences a global animation product produced by an Indian animation studio and has been short-listed for nomination to the Oscars” says A K Madhavan, CEO - Crest Animation Studios India.

Alpha and Omega is the story about two young wolves, Kate and Humphrey. They are both at opposite ends of their pack’s social order and are thrown together in a foreign land, where they need each other to return home. But love complicates everything.

The film has voiceovers by Justin Long, Hayden Panettiere, Christina Ricci and (late) Dennis Hopper. Alpha and Omega will release in India on February 4.
