Cristiano Ronaldo will play a superhero in ‘Striker Force 7’


Although he has often been described as superhero on the football pitch, Cristiano Ronaldo is set to play a real one, as he fights against evil with a group of powerful friends in ‘Striker Force 7.’

It is an animated series in which the Portuguese star will be the producer and main character.

Produced by Graphic India and VMS Communication, it can be watched through Facebook Watch, in addition to being produced in other formats such as comics, videogames or magazines.

Speaking to Deadline, Ronaldo touched on his latest venture and all of the lessons he hopes the viewers will gain from the show.

“In the same way that football connects with cultures and people around the world, I think that animated characters and heroes can do the same,” he said.

“That is the reason why I want to project these passions through this and share it with my fans.


“The story of my life has many similarities with the ups and downs that the kids on the football team will suffer in the series.

“It’s about values, challenges, friendship, hard times, hard work, solidarity, tension and harmony, in a word, it’s about life.”

As the co-founder of the show, Graphic India shared their thoughts on what it means to work with Ronaldo.

“Cristiano Ronaldo has inspired millions of people around the world with his work, his dedication and his ethics,” they noted.

“He’s a superhero in real life for an entire generation and this series will bring together a lot of characters that represent the diversity of followers that follow the Portuguese.”
