This is not a drill: Around the World in 80 Days – Journey of Wonders will be Red Raion’s next CGI movie for licensing!
Our newest title – currently in production – will revisit the 1872 IP Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne, a novel that has had many generations of dreamers fantasize about this exciting traveling adventure for 150 years.
In this reinterpretation of the classic IP, Phileas Fogg and his eccentric valet Passepartout will have to complete their frenetic trip to find Miss Auda, a fascinating and brilliant explorer that is waiting for them in a mysterious location that they will have to guess through a series of clues scattered around the world.
This frantic search will lead the two travelers to an immersive journey of exploration across the new seven wonders of the modern world, from Rome’s Colosseum to the Great Wall of China to the Indian Taj Mahal.
We are producing two different versions of the film – one for 5D cinemas and VR simulators, and one for Dome and Flying Theaters: people who will experience the movie in 5D and VR will travel the world using trains, cars, ships, and horses; audiences who will enjoy it in a Dome cinema or in a Flying Theater will travel on a hot-air balloon.
Valeria Rizzo, our Business Development Director, asserted:
“We’re very excited about this new title we are producing. Our clients have been asking us to produce a movie where people could see beautiful landscapes and incredible real environments: this is why our first licensed title of 2022 will be a deeply immersive experience for people of all ages who want to live a magical adventure to discover the most incredible beauties of our world, all without moving from their cinema seats.
We chose to produce two versions of the movie, specifically thought to valorize our clients’ different types of media-based attractions: this way the experience will be more intense and immersive according to the hardware on which their guests will try it!”
Following, the words of Sara Menegazzi, Red Raion’s Creative Director:
“Jules Verne’s masterpiece is such a famous IP that revisiting in a way that can still surprise and excite people is a challenging, yet rewarding process. We have been working hard to balance the frenetic rhythm of the trip with a deep sense of exploration and discovery – with a fun touch!
Phileas Fogg and Passepartout – who in this revisitation will be a bright and quite goofy android – have to reach their destination frantically, but they will always find some time to feast their eyes on the spectacular architectural masterpieces that fill the beautiful world we live in.
For the visuals, we are using warm colors and oniric atmospheres to reproduce the real, breathtaking environments our characters will visit.”
