The Guardian of Legends

Powrót Strażnika Legend

When Jake gets stuck in a VR game controlled by the evil Hypnotist, his sister Madaleine together with Teddy Bear and the inhabitants of the game world frees Jake and the Legendary World from the malefactor’s influence.

7-year-old Jake gets stuck in a VR game controlled by the power of the Hypnotist. His 11-year- old sister Madaleine enters the game and together with her Teddy Bear and the inhabitants of the game world, Legendary Creatures, they defeat the Hypnotist, freeing Jake, the Legendary World (game world) and people in the real world from under his influence.

Director’s statement
While working on the series The Flying Bear and the Gang, I felt that the story told in it has much greater potential and can oscillate around the issue of “hypnosis by electronic devices” directly affecting almost all of us and certainly children. I decided to expand this topic and tell a story about a small boy addicted to computer games who discovers a new VR game in which the main “boss” is the Hypnotist – an evil artificial intelligence trying to hypnotize human’ minds. Jake (7) engages in the game so much that in the real world, he stops responding to any stimulus. His sister Madeleine (11) is aware of the situation and tries to help his brother and save him from the Hypnotist’s fatal influence. I saw this story as a contemporary version of the “Snow Queen” archetype. The issues I’ve found in it seem so important and have such a large dramatic and comic potential, making me sure that this is the story I would like to tell in the form of an animated film for children.
