Delgo Movie Press Release

I am often asked to review products for my blog that people think I and my readers will like. A week or so ago, I received a request to review the movie Delgo, from Fathom Studios. It doesn't open until December 12, so the only thing I have to go by is the website and the press release I received. After browsing around the movie site and watching the trailers, I can definitely see that this movie has rich images and is a feast for the eyes. But other than that... I'll share with you the information I have, and leave you to judge for yourself.



A Little Peace & Goodwill This Holiday Season – Animated Style

Fast-paced action and adventure, a mystical land, an unlikely hero, a princess and a message of acceptance between different cultures make Delgo the perfect family-friendly movie this holiday season.

Releasing in theaters December 12, Delgo’s impressive voice cast includes Freddie Prinze, Jr. (Delgo), Jennifer Love Hewitt (Princess Kyla), Anne Bancroft (exiled Empress Sedessa) as well as Chris Kattan (Filo), Val Kilmer (Bogardus), Lou Gossett Jr. (Nohrin King), Michael Clarke Duncan (Lockni Stonesage Council), Kelly Ripa (Kurrin), Burt Reynolds (Delgo’s Father) and Sally Kellerman (Narrator).

The story takes place in the magical land of Jhamora which is divided between two cultures – the Nohrin, winged masters of the skies, and the Lockni, the terrestrial tribe who harness the mystical powers of the land. When Delgo (Freddie Prinze, Jr.), a reckless Lockni teenager, forms a forbidden friendship with the spunky Nohrin Princess Kyla (Jennifer Love Hewitt), hostilities between the two peoples escalate, setting the stage for an exiled empress (Anne Bancroft) to exact her revenge and reclaim her rule.

Falsely imprisoned, Delgo and his best friend, Filo (Chris Kattan), must put aside their differences to join forces with a sworn enemy, Bogardus (Val Kilmer), and travel to the mysterious land of Perran to rescue Princess Kyla. Here they encounter fanciful creatures and discover more than just a kidnapped princess, they learn the value of different cultures and the importance of working together.

Recognized in the animated industry as “Best Feature Film” Anima Mundi 2008 and selected for Annecy ( France ) and SICAF ( Korea ), Delgo is rated PG and has a running time of 90 minutes. For more information, please visit www.delgo.com
