Film still: Enchanted Kingdom


Chicago Premiere

Nature is more magical, more enchanting, and more powerful than anything you can possibly imagine. No other continent inspires the imagination like Africa, a place of mysterious landscapes, awesome drama and a beguiling cast of characters. Filmed with groundbreaking technology, Enchanted Kingdom provides a never-before-seen perspective of the continent, immersing us in a way that has never been done before.

Narrated by Emmy® nominated and Golden Globe award-winning actor Idris Elba (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, American Gangster, Luther) and executive produced by Mike Newell (Great Expectations, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Donnie Brasco), Enchanted Kingdom is an extraordinary cinematic experience for the entire family, set to take audiences on a trip of a lifetime, as nature weaves its incredible magic.

Directed by Patrick Morris, Neil Nightingale. 2014, UK, 87 mins.
