Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2012
Los Angeles, CA (10/11/2012) -- Applied Art Productions is proud to announce the US theatrical release & distribution of DELHI SAFARI, the internationally celebrated 3D children's animation film. DELHI SAFARI, directed by Nikhil Advani, will be in theaters across the US in the top 20 regional markets featured on over 70 screens starting December 7, 2012.
DELHI SAFARI features the vocal talents of Hollywood's favorite stars including Jane Lynch (Glee), Cary Elwes (Princess Bride), Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty), Brad Garrett (Ratatouille, Everybody Loves Raymond), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld), Carlos Alazraqui (Happy Feet) and Tara Strong (Rugrats, Little Mermaid). DELHI SAFARI’s message is the preservation of the environment and the celebration of wildlife.
“Delhi Safari is a journey for these animals to stand up for their own rights, the rights to exist in nature and on the planet. They have to go to the humans because they’re in charge. What is really wonderful about it is even with such a huge cast, every part is very funny and unique” states cast member Jane Lynch (Glee) Voice of Female Flamingo.
“We’ve got a strong family that deals with crisis together; we’ve got a group of characters that go off on an adventure together with a mission, and a happy ending with fantastic music and great performances,” states cast member Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty) Voice of Begam, Mother Leopard.
DELHI SAFARI - The tranquility of jungle life is threatened when a real estate developer begins construction on a new subdivision. The unlikely team of a leopard cub named Yuvi, his mother the leopardess Begam, an unruly monkey Bajrangi and a lovable bear named Bagga; realize that the only way to stop things before it is too late, is by talking to the humans… Which will take a major feat: enlisting the support of the only human speaking animal, Alex, the Parrot.
Long since "off the reservation," Alex lives in a high-end neighborhood, with all the conveniences of modern life from air conditioning to a massive flat screen television, and a Master. Surrounded by his comforts, he lives in denial that he is someone's pet. Rejecting the pleas of his friends; they resort to kidnapping him and showing him what is becoming of their precious home.
The clock is ticking as the troop set off on a seemingly impossible journey meeting an eclectic array of characters along the way. Arriving in Delhi, they cause absolute commotion and with it, successfully get the attention of the media. Now in the spotlight, they must share their story and get the support of the only ones who can make a difference: humans.
