Tiny Senegalese hero Kirikou is back in this sumptuous follow-up to the universally beloved Kirikou and the Sorceress. Using his wits and speed, brave Kirikou once again sets out to thwart the evil Sorceress Karaba and save his village from supernatural and environmental perils. Comprised of 4 short segments and based on traditional West African folk tales, Kirikou and the Wild Beast shows how the smallest and most valiant of heroes can overcome the fiercest of beasts.

Directed by world-acclaimed animation masters Michel Ocelot and Bénédicte Galup, this multi-million dollar feature was produced by Didier Brunier (The Triplets of Belleville). Kirikou and the Wild Beast evokes the beauty of traditional West African village life through its inspired palette of ambers, ochers, and brightly colored patterns. In addition, the film features a lush soundtrack that brings together the internationally renowned African musicians Youssou N'Dour, from Senegal, Rokia Traore, from Mali, and Manu Dibango, from Cameroon.

Note: Women are shown in traditional attire (sarongs only), and children wear no clothing.

A wonderfully imaginative collection of fairy tales. - Moira MacDonald, SEATTLE TIMES
