Take a look to this teaser poster of The Journey Of The Elephant Soliman, the upcoming CG animated movie directed by Sandor Jesse based on a script by Juliette Alfonsi and Matthias Drescher:
“Calicut, India, 1548. 12-year-old Amal is thrown off his family’s elephant Soliman and injured. His parents, the most respected spice traders of the town, sell the elephant to Portuguese prince Cortez, who wants to impress Princess Katrina of Austria. But the elephant panics and smashes everything to pieces while being loaded onto the ship. Hiding in a barrel, Amal is heaved aboard and becomes a stowaway with Soliman, sailing for Europe.
Prince Cortez wants to stuff Soliman as a trophy and win the heart of Princess Katrina, a guest at the Portuguese court. Katrina, however, doesn‘t want to get married. And she doesn‘t like stuffed elephants either. Together with her faithful companion, pug Franz, she decides to escape from her golden cage and save the elephant. Perfect timing, because Amal and Soliman are running out of time.
But their escape does not remain unnoticed for long. Boiling with rage, Cortez wants his princess and his elephant back, chasing our heroes across the Spanish desert, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Alps. After our unequal heroes manage to flee, an adventurous journey begins.”
