superdumb supervillain: D-E-L-G-O

Tuesday, December 09, 2008


Roo loves fairies, princesses, epic battles and magic, so Delgo, the new release from Fathom Studios that opens nationwide on Friday, has already captured her interest. The preview has been running during her Saturday morning cartoons (Ninja Turtles and Dinosaur King, dude!), so she's been hounding me to take her to see it for a while already!

Here's what I found out about Delgo from its impressive website:

The story takes place in the magical land of Jhamora which is divided between two cultures – the Nohrin, winged masters of the skies, and the Lockni, the terrestrial tribe who harness the mystical powers of the land. When Delgo (Freddie Prinze, Jr.), a reckless Lockni teenager, forms a forbidden friendship with the spunky Nohrin Princess Kyla (Jennifer Love Hewitt), hostilities between the two peoples escalate, setting the stage for an exiled empress (Anne Bancroft) to exact her revenge and reclaim her rule.

Falsely imprisoned, Delgo and his best friend, Filo (Chris Kattan), must put aside their differences to join forces with a sworn enemy, Bogardus (Val Kilmer), and travel to the mysterious land of Perran to rescue Princess Kyla. Here they encounter fanciful creatures and discover more than just a kidnapped princess, they learn the value of different cultures and the importance of working together.

Now, how could I say no to an animated fantasy film with the late, lamented Anne Bancroft as the baddie? I can't. I won't. Plus the animation looks really top-notch. And I am all about the spunky princesses!

Check out Delgo this weekend, opening on December 12!

  1. I know!! This is one movie I'm looking forward too.
    I kinda like Christmassy movies so was hoping for a good one in theater but this will do just fine!

    I'll bet Roo will love this one!
