Whispers: An Elephant's Tale ()

directed by
featuring Angela Bassett, Joanna Lumley, Anne Archer, Debi Derryberry

Beverly Joubert and Derek Joubert, a husband-and-wife team who've won widespread acclaim (and a certain amount of controversy) for their beautiful but unflinchingly realistic wildlife documentaries (including Eternal Enemies and Wildlife Warriors), wrote and directed this feature-length drama that uses footage of animals in the wild to tell a story about elephants in their native environment. After the death of its mother, a baby elephant named Whispers (voice of Debi Derryberry) grabs the tail of Groove (voice of Angela Bassett), a pachyderm exiled from her tribe. Groove is hardly the nurturing type, but the child won't let go, and soon she bonds with the youngster as they make their way through the dangers of the jungle in search of the Great River, a fabled paradise for their kind. Anne Archer, Joanna Lumley, and Alice Ghostley are among the actors who provide the "voices" of the animals; the entire film was shot at the Chobe National Park in Botswana, South Africa, a nature preserve where the Jouberts live and work. Whispers: An Elephant's Tale was financed and released by Walt Disney Pictures. Mark Deming, Rovi Hide synopsis

Not for little kids

by 123Thor on Dec 9, 2010

The movie is excellent but NOT for kids under 9. My little nieces watched it and were crying because the baby elephants parents were killed and the new herd were mean to him. I would definitely recommend it for older school kids
