Malaysia's favourite 12-year-old super spy, Ejen Ali, is hitting silver screens in Malaysia, Singapore, and Brunei

Set for a theatrical release on 28 November 2019, 'Ejen Ali The Movie' marks the first feature film from one of Malaysia's most beloved animated series

The 'Ejen Ali' series debuted in 2016 and has been broadcast in over 50 countries, making appearances in regional networks like Disney Asia, Nickelodeon India, Indonesia's MNCTV, and AlMajeed TV in the Middle East and North Africa.

You can watch the super-exciting trailer here:

'Ejen Ali The Movie' revolves around 12-year-old Ejen Ali, an accidental recruit at secret spy agency Meta Advance Tactical Agency (MATA)

After having settled in to his new life, he soon starts questioning his purpose when he discovers he's no longer the only master of the Infinity Retinal Intelligence System (IRIS). That's because MATA has rolled out a new and improved version called IRIS Neo, and now all MATA agents have their own super-slick spy gadget. 

That makes Ejen Ali feel less special. :(

Along his journey of self-discovery, Ejen Ali is approached by a mysterious figure claiming to know about a surprising personal connection

Ejen Ali is faced with the ethical dilemma of potentially risking his loyalty to MATA while attempting to uncover the truth.

Honestly, if you saw the trailer, it could totally be a live-action film, complete with exciting fight scenes and intense background music. A real cinematic treat for kids and adults alike!

Cute kitty.
