“What we managed to showcase in the films was just the tip of the iceberg. From the minute I started working on this story, I knew the world of ‘Baahubali’ can’t be encompassed into a film or two, simply because there’s so much more to tell and animation is another way to do that,” Rajamouli said in a statement, indicating that the animation series may actually be the third instalment that the director hinted at. However, fans are still hopeful to get a third Bahubali movie.
