Messaging app Line Indonesia has launched official animated sound stickers of six Wiro Sableng film characters, including Wiro Sableng (Vino G. Bastian), Mahesa Birawa (Yayan Ruhian) and Sinto Gendeng (Ruth Marini).
Users can download the stickers, which use images taken directly from the film, for Rp 12,000 (less than US$1) per one set of eight stickers.
The animated stickers can be used on Line 4.4.0 version or higher for iOS and Android devices, or 3.7 version or higher for Windows phone users.
“We consider the Wiro Sableng film to have the same target audience as Line, so we decided to create the stickers,” said Revie Sylviana, the company’s strategic partnership and business-to-consumer director, in a statement. “Hopefully these stickers will be able to further introduce legendary fiction characters like Wiro Sableng to the young generation.”
“We’re very proud that the Wiro Sableng film can collaborate with Line stickers because Indonesian film needs this [kind of] support,” said the film’s producer, Sheila Timothy. “I hope this collaboration makes [the audience], especially Line users, [feel] closer to [the characters].”
The messaging platform also launched a sticker competition where users can send Wiro Sableng stickers to as many friends as possible between Aug. 7 and 12 to win prizes, including three exclusive Wiro Sableng T-shirts, 10 tickets for the film’s screening on Aug. 29 and six tickets for the film’s gala premiere on Aug. 27.
