Magic Frame Animation and Creation Entertainment Media join in the coproduction of the feature film "Rebellious" (95’), which will have its global premiere at AFM in November. The studios have also attached writers Annalisa LaBianco ("The Beverly Hills Chihuahua") and Jeffery Spencer ("Secret Magic Control Agency") to the project. Sasha Shapiro (Dirty Grandpa) is the producer of the film.
In this modern fairytale, a headstrong princess is kidnapped by an evil sorcerer, Kezabor. The princess’s clever fiancé must use his wit in an epic quest to find her, while the princess boldly challenges her captors and plots a daring escape. The film puts a contemporary spin on the classic fairytale, introducing the “modern princess”. Rather than surrendering to circumstances out of her control, she has autonomy and chooses her own path.
Alex Tsitsilin ("Secret Magic Control Agency") will direct the film, which is produced by Sasha Shapiro and Sefi Carmel ("Legacy of Lies"). “The incredible team behind this film have brought this modern fairytale to life through its dynamic characters, and we are delighted to share it with potential buyers next month at AFM. Inspired by aspects of some of the most popular fairytales, Rebellious has so much to offer including a brave princess and a whole lot of action!”, commented Sefi Carmel, CEO of Creation Entertainment Media.
Lidia Chirita, Head of Sales and Co-Productions at Magic Frame Animation, says “We are so excited to share this special project for the first time at AFM. This story and its unique characters from a range of cultural backgrounds, stand out from other fairytales. 'Rebellious' is all about empowerment, with the princess at the centre of the action! We look forward to sharing this story with audiences and potential partners next month.”
