Ronaldinho on the big screen

Ronaldinho and his animated self. Super hero meets soccer star!

Brazilian legend Ronaldinho is a super star on the pitch, but now he’s going to shine on the big screen — well, sort of.

Bala entertainment, a division of Venky’s (owners of Blackburn), has an animated movie in production featuring the Brazilian star. According to India Glitz, the movie is set to be released in May of 2014 — right before Brazil hosts the World Cup.

The animated film will be called “R-10.” The character modeled after Ronaldinho will face off against aliens, using his soccer skills to defeat them and save the world. We couldn’t make this up if we tried!
