With One Studios, ONE Championship plans to venture into “high quality and compelling content” and feature films with its own athletes taking the centre stage.
Following the announcement of ONE Studios, ONE will soon be showcasing its first movie projects which are in the works for the last several months.
ONE Studios will comprise a team of filmmakers and producers, with programming set to include ‘visionary epics’, feature films and shorter form TV shows, Sportspromedia has reported.
Sityodtong has said that ONE Studios will provide a “major platform” for the series’ athletes “to spread their message and inspire the world. Ultimately, our formula for success is infinitely scalable across the world. Every country needs values, heroes, and stories. Through the power of media and the magic of storytelling, our mission is to unleash real-life superheroes, celebrate values, ignite dreams, inspire nations, and change the world”, he said.
Sityodtong said “Today I am thrilled to announce the launch of ONE Studios, the movie and TV division of ONE Championship. There are so many amazing and inspiring stories to tell. We will make world-class blockbuster movies and TV shows for the world. We have been working on our first movie project over the last several months, and I will make a huge announcement soon.
“As the leader of ONE Championship, my job is to serve our athletes by giving them the brightest futures possible. There will now be more opportunities than ever for our athletes to achieve the life of their dreams, especially after they retire. Unlike our global competitors who sell fights, ONE Championship is on a mission to unleash real-life superheroes who ignite the world with hope, strength, dreams, and inspiration. We don’t sell fights. We build heroes. ONE Studios will be a major platform for our heroes throughout their careers to spread their messages and inspire the world. My dream is to create the next generation of heroes around the world like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Jackie Chan.”

ONE Studios will distribute content globally via digital partners such as Netflix, YouTube, Facebook, and Amazon, among others, as well as to existing 140+ TV broadcast partners around the globe.
ONE Championship in March has signed a multi-year partnership with Star Sports and Hotstar.
