Kaena explores CG worlds

The computer animated Kaena: The Prophesy is coming to DVD from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment.

On a distant planet, a gigantic coiling plant called Axis, stretches high above the clouds. At its center is a village whose people are in mortal danger because their “tree world” is withering…its sap is drying up. The people beg their gods for help, but to no avail. Compelled by a mysterious force, Kaena, a rebellious, high-spirited teenage girl will defy the Grand Priest’s supreme authority and her people’s ancestral beliefs to take the perilous journey through Axis’s deepest roots to discover what dark secrets lie beyond the clouds. Along the path she meets the Selenites, a race led by a cruel Queen that is also trying to keep the tree from dying, although by enslaving another race. Helped by a mysterious creature from another world, the frightening truth that Kaena will discover at the end of her quest will profoundly change her forever.

The film is available in anamorphic widescreen with audio in Dolby Digital 5.1. Extras include a making of featurette and a virtual interview with the French actress who portrayed Kaena.

Premiering September 7th, the DVD is priced at $24.96.
