Kung-Fu-Tastic! Animated Family DVD “THE PRODIGY” is loaded with Hilarious Action & Kung Fu Fun.
"THE PRODIGY" animated family film is now released on DVD at a retailer near you: Walmart, Amazon, Target, Best Buy, and more. Simultaneous launch of website KungFuProdigy.com offers loads of free fun gifts, streaming video, and interactive fun.
THE PRODIGY highlights the story of a lovely yet humble young girl in Ancient China who is an exceptional champion. Her name is "KG" - the "Kung-Fu Girl" with a big heart. Although she is an underdog, and the odds are against her; she discovers that there is no limit to what she can accomplish when she believes in herself. With the help of her brave yet zany Master Panda, KG sets off on a journey to restore justice to her beautiful kingdom and rescue her beloved prince. A hilarious side-splitting animated feature, THE PRODIGY delivers Non-Stop Kung Fu Fun!
The DVD is now available in all retail outlets in North America, including Walmart, Target, Amazon, and Best Buy, and makes a great summer gift for the kids who are out of school and would like hours of entertainment.
The film represents a milestone for Writer/Director Robert D. Hanna, who created Prevalent Entertainment as an independent animation house that has employed an American team without outsourcing to foreign animators, and performs outside of the big studio system. The special Prevalent production pipeline has allowed them to operate at a competitive cost and streamline the animation process.
Some of the best CG Animators, Production Designers, and Artists from DreamWorks, Sony, and Disney studios all contributed. An integral part of the team is David Colman of Disney Feature Animation; he's an Emmy Award winning artist who generated character designs for THE PRODIGY. David Lowery (Head of story on Shrek) was producer and supervisor of the story department, and Craig Elliott (Shark Tale, Bee Movie) was the exceptional production designer. Steve Gordon (Shrek II, Anastasia, Over The Hedge) created awesome story boards to flesh out the wonderfully romantic storyline. Fascinating Bonus Featurettes on the DVD illustrate a primer for future animators on “Animated Character Creation” and bringing the “Story To Life”; they document the pre-production work of the talented artists and animators who worked tirelessly on the film.

Kids can download free posters, greeting cards, wallpapers, and a coloring book of all THE PRODIGY characters.
