The new CG-animated feature Kikoriki: Legend Of The Golden Dragon is coming to DVD in North America on March 7, 2017 from Shout Factory in partnership with Odin’s Eye Entertainment and Riki Group. Beloved around the world, and known to U.S. audiences from the “GoGoRiki” TV series that aired on The CW, the cute, colorful Kikoriki crew are now starring in their own movie. Take a peak a the Kikoriki: Legend Of The Golden Dragon trailer below.
Kikoriki: Legend Of The Golden Dragon, produced by RIKI Group and directed by Dennis Chernov, is the first of two Kikoriki movies that Shout! Factory will release, and it will include an egg decorating kit, while supplies last.
The lovably simple residents of peaceful Kikoriki Island are thrown kicking and screaming into big adventure when their resident scientist invents an amazing device – a helmet called “the Improverizor” – which takes personality traits from one person and swaps them with someone else’s!
But when spineless young Wally tries to use the untested device to cure his cowardice, he ends up even more spineless – by getting accidentally body-switched with a squirmy little caterpillar. Now he’s got more to fear than he ever dreamed, and so do his fellow villagers, as they’re dragged into a madcap adventure packed with plane crashes, mistaken identities, erupting volcanoes and angry natives on the warpath. Boy, do the Kikoriki Сrew wish they could switch places now – with anyone!
The characters are charming and the storyline is creative. Imagine being scared of everything, well that’s Wally. In order to overcome this disability, he bravely tries a new gadget. But oh my goodness things do not go well for him. After a plane crash, Wally ends up in a caterpillars body! And the islanders think he’s the legendary Golden Dragon and there to save them. There’s lots of action and unexpected twists and turns. It’s a great family movie and perfect for our entertainment collection.
