Crow: The Legend
Inspired by the Native American legend, Crow: The Legend, is a fully immersive journey exploring themes of self-discovery, diversity and selflessness, wherein the viewer plays a key role in the story.
From the director of Madagascar, INVASION! (Tribeca 2016), and ASTEROIDS! (Sundance 2017) comes Baobab Studios’ latest visionary VR animation. The carefree forest animals imagine spring will last forever. However, winter comes and the animals soon realize that their lives are in danger. What they need is a hero; what they need is Crow: The Legend.
Crow, voiced by John Legend, must give up everything he values to save his friends – or so he thinks. In a time before mankind walked the face of the Earth there exists only Spring. The world is always sunny and the animals live content and free of worry. Of all the animals, Crow is the most admired for his dazzling plumage and mellifluous voice.
Then, for reasons unknown, the Spirit of the Seasons brings Winter to the forest for the very first time. As the temperature plunges, the once carefree animals realize their very lives are in danger. Who among them can soar into the heavens and make the journey to persuade “The One Who Creates Everything by Thinking” to help them in their time of need? The answer is obvious, yet the solution not so, for what must Crow sacrifice to save his friends?
