Wattpad Webtoon Studios and Zeta Studios, and Beta Fiction Spain have formed a partnership to produce a film adaptation of “Sigue Mi Voz,” Ariana Godoy’s Spanish-language Wattpad webnovel. “Ariana is an incredible author whose stories continue to smash records and deeply resonate with audiences across the world in every format,” Aron Levitz, President of Wattpad Webtoon Studios said.

“Sigue Mi Voz” has more than 28 million reads on Wattpad, where Godoy has more than two million followers and is one of the platform’s most influential authors. The launch will serve as the first Spanish production from Wattpad Webtoon Studios to premiere in theaters.“It’s an incredible privilege to continue working with her and bring her fans these adaptations, especially with producing partners who understand her exceptional vision as much as we do," Levitz said.

Wattpad Webtoon Studios announced development on the film late last year with Inés Pintor and Pablo Santidrián tapped as the film’s writers and directors. Aron Levitz, Lindsey Weems Ramey and Bego Robles will executive produce for Wattpad Webtoon Studios. Robles, Director of International Development and Production for Wattpad Webtoon Studios, will also oversee development for the film in Spain. Antonio Asensio and Paloma Molina will produce for Zeta Studios and Mercedes Gamero and Pablo Nogueroles for Beta Fiction Spain.

Godoy has written over 20 published webnovels in English and Spanish on Wattpad, accumulating more than 850 million reads online. Her biggest hit, the global webnovel sensation “A Través De Mi Ventana,” has over 370 million reads online. Godoy’s published novels have sold more than one million copies around the world. “Sigue Mi Voz” has also been published by Penguin Random House Grupo Editorial and was one of the most sought-after books during this year’s "Madrid Book Fair."

With reading communities across Europe, Wattpad Webtoon Studios has established partnerships with various notable entertainment companies in the region, including Fremantle, Leone Films in Italy, and Mediawan in France. “The themes in “Sigue Mi Voz” are ones that need to be handled with the utmost care,” said Paloma Molina and Antonio Asensio, producers at Zeta Studios. “This will be our first collaboration with Wattpad WEBTOON Studios and Beta, and we look forward to the great challenge and great responsibility it will be to bring this story to life.”

“Sigue Mi Voz” follows Klara and her search for love, identity and self-acceptance. After a mental health crisis that keeps her home for 76 days straight, Klara does nothing except listen to her favorite radio program, ‘Sigue Mi Voz.’ But one day she wonders if it's possible to fall in love with someone that she’s heard on the radio but never met, whether she could really have feelings for Kang, the radio show host and someone whose voice she’s only ever heard, and whether she will overcome her fears and step back out into the world.

“Sigue Mi Voz” represents a new approach to the genre with a different theme and tone,” Mercedes Gamero, CEO of Beta Fiction Spain said. “By accompanying Klara and Kang in their journey of falling in love, it sheds light on very relevant topics in today's social conversation, such as mental health, and the value of friendship, love, and family support to overcome the ups and downs that life brings. It's a story of light and hope, of resilience and bravery that will illuminate the big screen."
