MUMBAI - Pele is set to return to the field again, this time in an animated film to be made by an Indian company around the Brazilian soccer legend.

Compact Disc India has also acquired the rights to develop games and merchandising around the triple World Cup winner, according to a notice filed with the Bombay Stock Exchange.

"We'll be producing an animation film based on soccer with Pele as the central character," company chairman Suresh Kumar said.

"However, it is too early to talk about the script or the storyline."

Brazil's Prime Licensing, the company which holds the exclusive rights to the Pele brand, confirmed the deal. - Reuters
