New ‘Pong Bagus’ film to debut on Netflix – ESPN
New ‘Ping Pong Baguses’ is the latest title from Netflix’s streaming service.
The film tells the story of three girls who play a game of ping pong while on a camping trip.
“Pong,” the title translates to “pong ball,” is a popular board game played on the island of Ping Pong.
The new movie features an animated, hand-drawn story and music, and features new locations, characters and props.
“It’s a little different than other Netflix movies we’ve made,” said Mike Mignola, the writer-director of the original ‘Poodle.’
“We were able to make a film with a much more natural feel, one that feels like it’s coming out of a home that has a history of doing things that are unusual.”
Netflix, which is owned by Walt Disney Co., has released dozens of original films in the past year, including ‘The Jungle Book,’ ‘Dunkirk,’ ‘The Purge: Anarchy’ and ‘The Keep.’
Netflix’s slate includes more than a dozen original films, many of which are based on characters and themes from other shows, including Disney and Marvel’s ‘Thor: Ragnarok,’ ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ ‘Saving Mr. Banks’ and more.
Netflix has not yet announced a premiere date for the new film, which has not been officially released.
