Question: What’s better than a fun movie for kids that teaches valuable life lessons? Answer: A fun movie for kids that teaches valuable life lessons AND comes from a film company that is helping kids in need in honor of that movie’s release! To celebrate the release of The Hero of Color City on December 2, Magnolia Pictures has partnered with the non-profit organization, The Crayon Collection. The group collects crayons from national and regional restaurant chains to donate to children in need.
About The Hero of Color City:
Each night, when Ben falls asleep, his Crayons’ magical Crayon Box transports them to Color City, a world of dazzling hues, soaring fantasy and the whimsy of childhood.
When timid Yellow is accidentally left behind in Ben’s room, she inadvertently awakens two Unfinished Drawings: King Scrawl, a huge, mute monster, and Gnat, Scrawl’s overactive sidekick. They follow Yellow to Color City and claim the enchanted Rainbow Waterfall and all of it’s color for themselves. Soon Color City will fade and our lovable crayon characters will disappear.
It’s up to Yellow and her pals, Blue, Green, Red, and the twins, Black and White, to save the day. Meeting with fantastical creatures and fun adventures along the way, Yellow discovers she has more courage and strength than she knew and learns to believe in herself and to count on the support of her friends.
Replete with valuable life lessons, this enchanting story will entertain and inspire in a stunningly rendered and utterly unique animated world.
