This morning, I received a notice regarding a forthcoming theatrical release from the folks at Cineverse. Their animated Fantasy -- Warrior King -- is scheduled to hit screens on August 25th. While I don't see a great deal of information available regarding the release on the Information Superhighway, the trailer is available ... so I'll be doing the usual by copying and posting the details as provided. Interested folks should give it a watch and maybe even mark your calendars if this one looks to be what you might be anticipating for yourself and maybe the kiddies. It definitely has a family-focused vibe to it.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
Cineverse Acquires the Animated Epic Fantasy Warrior King
Sets August 25 Theatrical Release Date in North America
Based on the epic true story, King Gesar was born to a divine lineage and was destined to become a great hero and ruler. As a young man, the future king grew up exiled in a realm overrun by menacing demons and monsters. When evil forces threaten his home, he embarks on a heroic journey to save his people and fulfill his destiny as a legendary leader.
The story of Gesar is considered one of Central Asia’s literary classics and was passed down in oral tradition for some 1,000 years, as well as literary, poetic and stage play versions. Its Tibetan iteration may now be the most prominent, It is certainly one of the longest, running to over 100 volumes and a million verses, according to some calculations.
“Epic films are meant to be experienced on the big screen,” said Yolanda Macias, Chief Content Office of Cinedigm “The sensory immersion that comes from watching films like this in theaters not only enhances the experience in the moment but reminds us why we love going to the theater in the first place. High-quality action and animation are what summer movies are made for. Warrior King invites fans of fantasy animation to embark on a captivating co-viewing experience showcasing the extraordinary strength, intelligence and courage of King Gesar, the qualities that define a true warrior.”
