Legend of the Sea - scheduled for completion by end-2006, this production has a budget of USD3.7 million and enacts the legend of the dragon, symbol of the Chinese for thousands of years. And throughout history and spanning all cultures, people, young and old, have held this icon of formidable power and sinuous grace in awe. Set a long time ago at the dawn of time, a mighty dragon rules over weather and water with the mandate of Heaven. Overlord of rain and the seas in the mortal world, the Dragon King of the Eastern Sea reigns supreme from his palace under the waves. Main character, Prince Darius, son and heir to the throne of the Dragon King, is playful and rebellious. In a moment of folly, he steals the Luminous Pearl, the ruler's treasure and source of his power, and is entangled in the evil schemes of Ocho the Octopus, the king's archenemy, who threatens the lives of the prince, his father and all whom he holds dear. Thus begins Darius' watery journey of discovery and redemption, with his sidekick, the squid, and loyal friends, to save his father and the kingdom.
