BoBoiBoy Movie 2 is a 2019 Malaysian computer-animated superhero comedy film directed by Nizam Razak. The film follows BoBoiBoy and friends as they have to fight an ancient villain named Retak’ka who wants to take over BoBoiBoy's elemental powers.

It is the second film to be produced by Animonsta Studios after BoBoiBoy: The Movie (2016). It is a standalone sequel to the first season of BoBoiBoy Galaxy. It is co-written by Nizam himself and Anas Abdul Aziz. This is the first film to use settings and characters from BoBoiBoy Galaxy.

It was released simultaneously in 4 countries, including Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, and Singapore on 8 August 2019. The Vietnamese dub version of the film will be released in Vietnam on 30 August 2019.[2]

Background[edit]

BoBoiBoy and friends Yaya, Ying, Gopal, and Fang are 14-year-old teenagers who all have different unique superpowers. BoBoiBoy has seven elemental powers: Fire, Water, Lightning, Wind, Leaf, Earth and Light. Power Spheres are robots that contain powers and are protectors of the galaxy. Together they travel the galactic world in a spaceship to save Power Spheres that are controlled by the evil.

Synopsis[edit]

In this film, BoBoiBoy and his friends are being hunted by an ancient villain named Retak’ka who wants to seize BoBoiBoy's elemental powers. He is the original user of BoBoiBoy’s elemental powers and now he seeks to take back his full powers to become the most powerful one and dominate the galaxy. The team must find a way to stop and defeat Retak’ka from taking BoBoiBoy's powers.

Production[edit]

The director Nizam Razak stated that the process of filmmaking for this second film is faster than the first film and only took one year to be finished. They enforced a 12-month deadline to see if they can make a film without jeopardising the quality or the storyline of the animation.[3] He admitted there is pressure in completing the movie on time but his production team of 100 people managed to do that within that time. They used better technology such as Redshift and comprehensive simulation method[4] even though the cost will be higher to give the best quality to the audience.[5] If the reaction to this film is positive, they plan to make movies consistently, with a new film every one year or every one-and-a-half year.[3]
