As the dragons have almost disappeared from the kingdom of Bayala, the magic powers of the fairies are weakening. The fairy princesses Sera and Surah are thrilled when they discover they have the key to save the world in their hands: a dragon egg! Now the sisters must reach the dragon mountains and they embark on an adventurous journey into the unknown ...
Set in a magical world of fantasy, populated by mythical creatures, BAYALA is the new English-language 3D animation feature from the producers of worldwide successes “Ooops! Noah is Gone…” and “Luis and the Aliens“. It is based on the popular bayala® brand, a high-end line of fantasy figurines produced by toy manufacturer Schleich. The release of the movie will be accompanied by a world-wide roll-out of the bayala® figurines.
The fairy world of Bayala is a country of magic, where various fairy tribes live in an abundant flora. Huge blossoms and enchanting plants are used for housing and food. The fairies have been living in harmony with nature – until the greedy Shadow Fairy queen Ophira started pushing for power over all living things…
Inside the Flower Palace there is intense activity in preparation of the coronation of the new queen of the Sun Fairies. The princesses Surah and Sera are delighted to see royals of other fairy tribes arrive, but they all bring bad news: the magical plants are dying. The dark power of the Shadow Fairy queen Ophira is rising. All of Bayala is in danger. Fairy princess Surah is worried. She knows Ophira best as she had been forced to live in her dark castle for several years. Only with the help of Ophira’s niece, Nuray and her best friend Jaro she could escape and return home.
When a dragon egg is found, hope stirs. If the magic dragons return, Bayala can be saved. But for a dragon feast at Solstice Rock, where the bond of fairies and dragons can be renewed, royals of all fairy tribes, including the Shadow Fairies, are needed. Princess Surah and her companions have to go on an adventurous journey, which not only leads them into the distant dragon mountains, but also to the dangerous Shadow Queen Ophira.
In the end Surah and her friends save the day and the whole of Bayala!
– Press Clippings –
“The ingredients are all here for a decent, uplifting, family-friendly adventure story. […] The cute animal sidekicks tick the right boxes and the messages around looking after nature and respect for all creatures are appealing.”
“An atmospheric animated film that focuses on the positive and nips negative conflicts in the bud - hard to believe that something like this still exists!”
“The adventure, which is based on a series of toys, is particularly appealing…”
"In the end, it is very refreshing to note this cast of female characters is entitled to an adventurous quest without romance, without a reassuring story about men, as is often the case with entertainment aimed at a female audience. The heroines of Bayala won't let that fool them, and that's an important part of fantasy!"
