KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- After the success of 'Geng: The Adventure Begins' back in 2009, Les’ Copaque Production came back with a new film entitled 'Upin & Ipin: Jeng Jeng Jeng'.

The original idea to produce the film came from the company’s own Managing Director, Haji Burhanuddin.

"I wanted the children to see what it's like to really interact with Upin and Ipin," Haji Burhanuddin.

After the successfully production of 'Upin & Ipin: The Musical' and Upin & Ipin Carnival, this film was expected to generate more positive feedback especially from Upin & Ipin's loyal fans worldwide.

The producer had drafted a plan to screen the film not only in Malaysia, but also all over Indonesia as well.

For this film, Les’ Copaque Production collaborated with KRU Studios for the first time and the locations of choice for the shooting took place around Selangor and Kuala Lumpur.

KRU Studios, which specializes in producing films laden with CGI concepts like Vikingdom and Cicakman, offered their technology and shooting techniques for this film meanwhile the animation process will be produced by Les' Copaque Production.

Directed by Azhari Zain, this film is studded with an all-star cast which included local artists Awie, Siti Saleha, Tauke (Jambu) and Iqram Dinzly.

The voice of Upin & Ipin, Asyiela Putri was also in the cast list.

The film is expecting to be released in 2015.
