When you fly all over Africa, you will see the huge stone circles that used to be the home of our ancestors. Deep in the forests and out in the open plains, you will see dead rotten meat, bones turning to white powder, but you will never see the tusks. The elephant is still paying back its debt to man.
The conflict between man and elephant has been alive since the beginning of time. When man was on his last step of evolution, he began an adventure in domesticating the wild beasts, from the guinea fowl, the warthog, the impala and the zebra to the sweetest of them all, the wildebeest.

This magical fairy tale is based on the original Carlo Collodi classic of the little wooden puppet who has to prove himself to be honest and trustworthy before he can become a real live boy, with help and guidance from Jiminy Cricket and the Blue Fairy. Follow Pinocchio and Gepetto on their adventures to Pleasure Land, Stromboli’s Puppet Theatre and inside a whale. Watch Pinocchio’s nose grow as he lies to Gepetto and see Jiminy Cricket magically turn into a life-size cricket. A fairy-tale classic for the whole family to enjoy.
