An Elephant’s Journey
In honor of World Elephant Day (Sunday, August 12) we would like to announce that the family-friendly adventure An Elephant’s Journey, starring Elizabeth Hurley and Sam Ashe Arnold, arrives on DVD, Digital, and On Demand October 23 from Lionsgate.
When Phoenix Wilder (Sam Ashe Arnold), a 13-year-old orphan, moves in with his Aunt Sarah (Elizabeth Hurley) – his only surviving relative, living in Africa with her husband, Uncle Jack – Phoenix quickly falls in love with his surroundings. However, while on safari with his uncle, Phoenix gets separated from the rest of the group. As the search for Phoenix continues, the boy becomes fast friends with a giant bull elephant he was able to free from a trap. Phoenix names the elephant Indlovu, and, as they begin to bond, he decides to try to stop a band of poachers who prey on African elephants. Receiving the Dove Seal of approval for all ages, the An Elephant’s Journey DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.98.
After losing his parents, Phoenix (Sam Ashe Arnold) moves to Africa to live with his Aunt Sarah (Elizabeth Hurley). While on safari with his uncle one day, Phoenix wanders off and becomes lost in the African bush. After rescuing a huge elephant from a trap, Phoenix befriends the great creature, which he names Indlovu (“The Unstoppable”). Riding through the wilderness, the bold duo finds evidence of a local gang of poachers, and together they plot to stop the hunters’ cruel plans.
