101 Films International, an Amcomri Entertainment company, has secured worldwide distribution rights for live-action movie Mia and the Dragon Princess (80 minutes) produced by Dead Pixel Productions. Launching at EFM in Berlin.
Staring Paul McGann (The Three Musketeers, Withnail & I), Brian McCardie (The Ghost and the Darkness, Speed 2: Cruise Control), Noa Nikita Bleeker, Dita Tantang (One Shot, Ren), Steven Meo (High Hopes, Torchwood), and MyAnna Buring (Kill List). Mia and the Dragon Princess is directed and written by Richard Foster, alongside co-writer Michael Pedley.
Mia, a plucky barmaid, has her life thrown into chaos when a mysterious woman turns up at her workplace on the run from a group of violent thugs.
Marshanda, a legendary female Pirate warrior, is transported from ancient China to the streets of modern London. Unable to communicate in English, she runs into Mia, a cautious barmaid, who feels compelled to help her. Marshanda is clearly on the run, from someone or something, but struggles to share her story. It isn’t long before a group of thugs, led by an eerily polite boss Walsh, arrives at the bar. They want Marshanda, and Walsh will use any means to get her. However, he’s under-estimated his opponent.
Michael Walker, EVP Productions and Acquisitions, 101 Films International comments, “Mia and the Dragon Princess is action-packed, and will take audiences from secret tunnels under the streets of London into a world of folklore, villainy and martial arts. We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to sell this movie and look forward to offering it to our clients in Berlin.”
