All-Digital, 3D Animated Film Debuts September on DVDColumbia TriStar to release KAENA: THE PROPHECY (July 12, 2004)
A dying world. An evil force. A terrible secret. Prepare to enter a remarkable world filled with breathtaking imagery and action from the fantastic imagination of co-writer/director Chris Delaporte in the stunning CG-animated feature film KAENA: THE PROPHECY. Premiering on DVD September 7 from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment, this sci-fi/fantasy animated adventure features the vocal talents of Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man 2, Mona Lisa Smile), Academy Award-winner Anjelica Huston (Iron Jawed Angels, The Grifters) and Richard Harris (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Gladiator). The first European-produced 3D animated movie, this exciting import from France features exceptional, mind-blowing imagery that pushes the CG-animation envelope even farther than Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within.
On a distant planet, a gigantic coiling plant called Axis, stretches high above the clouds. At its center is a village whose people are in mortal danger because their “tree world” is withering...its sap is drying up. The people beg their gods for help, but to no avail. Compelled by a mysterious force, Kaena (Dunst), a rebellious, high-spirited teenage girl will defy the Grand Priest’s supreme authority and her people’s ancestral beliefs to take the perilous journey through Axis’s deepest roots to discover what dark secrets lie beyond the clouds. Along the path she meets the Selenites, a race led by a cruel Queen (Huston) that is also trying to keep the tree from dying, although by enslaving another race. Helped by a mysterious creature from another world, the frightening truth that Kaena will discover at the end of her quest will profoundly change her forever.
Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment will also release KAENA: THE PROPHECY in a variety of special DVD two-pack offers with additional popular animated titles including Kaena/Cowboy Bebop: Special Edition (priced at $48.95 SLP), Kaena/Final Fantasy (priced at $41.95 SLP) and Kaena/Metropolis (priced at $44.95 SLP).
