Prana Studios, Inc. is an American computer animation and visual effects company, founded in 2005 in Los Angeles, United States, with a wholly owned subsidiary in Mumbai, India.[1][2]

In 2006, The Weinstein Company launched new series of direct-to-video CG feature length films called Unstable Fables - they were produced amongst others, by The Jim Henson Company and Prana Studios.[3] The first released was 3 Pigs and a Baby, the second released was Tortoise vs. Hare and third released was The Goldilocks and the 3 Bears Show.

Prana produces stories and CG imagery for US domestic, international and Indian domestic Bollywood markets, including Koochie Koochie Hota Hai for Dharma Productions,[4] as well as the upcoming French animated film Why I Did (Not) Eat My Father.

On March 29, 2013, Prana Studios affiliate 34x118 Holdings, LLC won the bidding of Rhythm and Hues in a bankruptcy auction against other visual effects/CGI animation studios, Prime Focus and Brave Vision. Another contender, Psyop, was eliminated early in the process.[5] The sale was "valued at about $30 million."[6]
