For several years now, the character of Tito, a Cuban-Mexican boy created by Cuban singer and producer Daniel Martín Subiaut, has been trying to launch his own cartoon series. He will achieve it in 2023, according to the director, thanks to the animation studies of the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Art and Industry (Icaic).
The series will be called titoverseis scheduled to arrive first in theaters and then on streaming platforms. streaming from other countries, and already has a detailed promotional apparatus. Tito’s “world” aspires to become a franchise, with several seasons, posters, toys and allusive clothing.
Its antecedent, the shorts Titus reacts, began dating in 2018 as an initiative of the Latin Music Institute, an institution with offices in Mexico and Cuba that seeks to rescue and spread the legacy of artists from both nations, such as Benny Moré and Pedro Infante. The shorts, promoted by Martín Subiat, honored through Tito to the Cuban artists Edesio Alejandro and Alicia Alonso, and promoted sanitary measures during the covid-19 pandemic.

Now, Martín Subiaut assured the official platform Cubarte, titoverse –a name that refers to the “multiverse” of the great American franchises of Marvel and DC– “will focus on the stage of adolescence of the charismatic character, who will assume roles of youthful hero together with a group of friends of diverse ethnic origins and customs , who congregate to fight evil in different dimensions and historical moments”.
The series will have 26 chapters with two-dimensional animation, and a Cuban, Mexican and Chinese team. “Each chapter contains universal, humanist, Marti values. There is no official release date, but when it comes out, it will touch many hearts and find smiles,” said its director.
Martín Subiaut also guaranteed that Tito’s shorts were very “attractive” for the Asian market, which is why the series also contains “adventures, humor, culture and martial arts” and a “new timeline”, more attractive to the public. Teen.
Last year, the production team made the final design of the characters, the plot of the chapters and the recording of the voices. “The universe created around Tito brought new characters, dozens of them, since the adventures developed in monothematic episodes lead them to travel through time and multidimensionality,” he said.
In addition to Tito –who has gone through several stages in its conception– the characters in the series are Celia, whom Martín Subiaut defines as “a fifteen-year-old from Santiago, defender of the Cuban identity, inspired by our Cuban warriors, especially Celia Sánchez, a combatant in the struggles against the dictatorship before the revolutionary triumph of 1959”.
Its design “was made in workshops in Latin America where the girls indicated what physical features they wanted to see in that character, with which they would be identified”
Its creator does not clarify the reasons that led him to include a character with such a strong political and propaganda resonance in a children’s cartoon, but alleges that his design “was developed in workshops in Latin America where the girls indicated what physical features they wanted to see in that character, with which they would see themselves identified”.
Xiunela, characterized as an “atomic habanera that fuses the seven African powers and the Chinese dragon”, seems inspired by the Chinese businesswoman Chen Cachita Xiulan, established years ago in Cuba, who ensured the distribution of Titoverse until 2030 in Asia and Oceania, and whose inclusion is justified, according to Martín Subiaut, “so that the series enjoys, in the Asian market, a greater reception”
A humanized cat “from another universe”, Mini –from a Cuban children’s song– completes the cast of characters. “She alludes to the search for tolerance and brings unity within the group of superheroes, she embodies universal sentiments.”
As for the “new” TIto, the producer affirms that he has dual nationality, and that he unites features of both Cuba and Mexico. “It’s fun, with high human values and a sense of justice,” Martín Subiaut defines it. The voice actors of the series are directed by Ana Nora Calaza, while the four protagonists will be played by Sadeth Rumbaut, Vicky Suárez, Lianet Alarcón and also by the singer Annie Garcés, one of the voices of Riding with Fidel.
The villain, Du Yan Long, will be played by actor Ulises González, while comedian Rigoberto Ferrera will play a character who represents “good”, Xu Fu.
