All ages will love this 2006 French animated fairy tale fantasy feature film written and directed by Michel Ocelot using 3D computer animation with two-dimensional, painted backgrounds and non-photorealistic rendering. Azur and Asmar are two children nursed by the same woman who tells them the story of the Djinn fairy waiting to be released from her chamber. Brought up together, they are as close as brothers until they are abruptly separated. Years later, Azur is haunted by memories of the legendary Djinn fairy, and takes it upon himself to journey all the way to Asmar's homeland to seek her out. (In English with some Arabic. Recommended for kids ages 8 and up.)
