On Saturday ASIFA-Hollywood recognized Crow: The Legend as Best Virtual Reality Production at the 46th Annie Awards. While this is an incredible moment for Baobab Studios, we are most proud that we’ve been able showcase indigenous worldview and that the industry has recognized the importance of this Native American legend.
Crow: The Legend is an exciting new animated movie starring John Legend as Crow, the most popular and admired animal in the forest with his magnificent colors and beautiful voice. But when the very first winter arrives, can Crow make the ultimate sacrifice to save his friends? Original song by John Legend.
Inspired by the original Native American legend, this story of sacrifice and community features Randy Edmonds, Kiowa-Caddo tribal elder and founder of the National Urban Indian Council as Narrator and Sarah Eagle Heart, CEO of Native Americans in Philanthropy, as Luna. Starring John Legend, Oprah Winfrey, Constance Wu (Crazy Rich Asians), Tye Sheridan (Ready Player One), Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), and Liza Koshy. Created by the director of Madagascar and the Emmy-winning animated films Invasion! and Asteroids! Executive produced by Baobab Studios, Get Lifted, and Native Americans in Philanthropy.
