Now despite the Pasbaan Legion release date scheduled for December 2019, fans still need to contribute to keep things on track Last we checked, the 25-year visual artist Umair Najeeb Khan intended to grow this project to an animated series. Maybe even a live-action adaptation.

To accomplish this, Umair has come up with a Kickstarter to fund this project. People who contribute to the cause will be awarded with perks.
