History[edit]

Les' Copaque was established in 2005 as a platform for young creative Malaysians to showcase their talents. The name comes from a local slang "last kopek" which means "final chance", which was modified to appear as a French word for aesthetic reasons.

In 2006, production for Geng: The Adventure Begins and Upin & Ipin commenced. Upin & Ipin debuted on TV9 in 2007 on Disney Channel Asia as a series of TV shorts about the eponymous identical twins exploring the significance of Ramadan. It was meant to be a spin-off to Geng: The Adventure begins.[1] Geng eventually became the highest grossing local movie of 2009; other local animated movies before the period grossed below RM 500,000.[2] After two Ramadan-themed seasons in 2007 and 2008, Upin & Ipin was renewed for a third season in 2009.

Another animated series called Pada Zaman Dahulu debuted in 2011 on TV Alhijrah. It concentrates on common Malay folklore where Sang Kancil is the main character.
