Animonsta Studios Sdn. Bhd. (or Animonsta for short) is a Malaysian animation company that publishes creative content for the Malaysian and international market. The company was founded on 15 September 2009 by Mohd Nizam Abd Razak and his three friends, Muhammad Anas Abdul Aziz, Mohd Safwan Abd Karim and Kee Yong Pin.

Situated in Cyberjaya[1], Animonsta was awarded MSC Malaysia status in 2011. Since 2014, the company is also known as Monsta. The Animonsta Studios logo features a little green monster biting into the letter 'O'.

History[edit]

Animonsta Studios was founded to develop fresh and wholesome animated content for a universal market. The developer's offerings include fictional films, TV series, souvenirs, and other related products in the intellectual property business.

The founders of Animonsta have experience in creating animated 3D films and blockbuster animations.[2] Through combined knowledge and previously gained experience, they founded Animonsta Studios with the goal of bringing wholesome content with a local touch to both local and international audiences.

Their first product, BoBoiBoy is about BoBoiBoy and his friends' adventures in battling aliens who are trying to invade Earth for its cocoa beans. The original run of BoBoiBoy consisted of 3 seasons with a total of 52 episodes. This was followed by the full-length theatrical release, BoBoiBoy: The Movie[3], and later a re-branding of the series (still ongoing) titled BoBoiBoy Galaxy[4] which features the same but slightly older cast of characters in a larger interplanetary setting. While the franchise is aimed at children and teenagers, the content is suitable for the entire family to enjoy together.[5]

The company has announced a sequel to BoBoiBoy: The Movie[6], and an original new animated series titled MechAmato, both of which are planned for release in 2019.[7]
