Did you know that from 2007-2014, Africa lost 144,000 elephants? I learned about the plight of the African elephants while watching An Elephant’s Journey, which arrives on DVD, Digital & On Demand on October 23.
An Elephant’s Journey is a family-friendly adventure that stars British actress, Elizabeth Hurley & Sam Ashe Arnol.
After losing his parents, Phoenix (Sam Ashe Arnold) moves to Africa to live with his Aunt Sarah (Elizabeth Hurley). While on safari with his uncle one day, Phoenix wanders off and becomes lost in the African bush. After rescuing a huge elephant from a trap, Phoenix befriends the great creature, which he names Indlovu (“The Unstoppable”). Riding through the wilderness, the bold duo finds evidence of a local gang of poachers, and together they plot to stop the hunters’ cruel plans.
The scenery is breathtaking & the animals are amazing to watch. The movie is great for the whole family.
DVD SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE:
- Commentary with Writer-Director Richard Boddington
- Interview with Elizabeth Hurley
- Interview with Elephant Expert Dr. Richard Leakey
- “Beyond the Journey: An In-Depth Look at Elephants” Featurette
Overall I found the movie interesting to watch. For adults & kids alike, you will learn how elephant poaching is a serious situation. The themes & level of action are age-appropriate for children in elementary-school.
“An Elephant’s Journey” will be available on DVD, Digital & On Demand on October 23.
“An Elephant’s Journey” is rated PG.
