The colourfully cast The Hero Of Color City hits VOD, iTunes, DVD and Blu-ray in Canada on December 2, 2014 from Video Services Corp (VSC).

Given a five Dove Rating by the Dove Foundation, The Hero of Color City stars Christina Ricci (Sleepy Hollow, Monster, Casper, Addams Family Values), Wayne Brady (Whose Line Is It Anyway?, The Wayne Brady Show), Craig Ferguson (The Late, Late Show With Craig Ferguson, How To Train Your Dragon), Rosie Perez (Do The Right Thing, Pineapple Express) and Sean Astin (the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, The Goonies, Rudy), this enchanting story entertains and inspires in a stunningly rendered and utterly unique animated world.

Each night, when Ben falls asleep, his crayons jump into their magical crayon box which transports them to their home in Color City, a world of dazzling hues, soaring fantasy and the whimsy of childhood. This land is fed by an enchanted rainbow and waterfall that provides the city and its citizens with color.

When Yellow, our timid heroine, is accidentally left behind in Ben’s room, she inadvertently awakens two unfinished drawings: King Scrawl, a huge, powerful, mute monster, and Gnat, Scrawl’s motor-mouthed, overactive sidekick. In search of color for themselves, they follow Yellow to Color City, causing panic and concern. If Scrawl and Gnat can claim the waterfall for themselves, Color City will fade, and along with it, our lovable crayon characters will disappear.

It’s up to Yellow and a motley crew of crayons, bodacious and brave Blue, meticulous, fussy Green, satirical Red, pessimistic Black, and overanxious White to save the day. Meeting with fantastical creatures and fun adventures along the way, Yellow discovers she has more courage and strength than she knew and learns to believe in herself and to count on the support of her friends.

The Hero Of Color City is available in English with optional Spanish or French subtitles, and its suggested retail price is $26.98 for DVD and $29.98 for Blu-ray. Special features are featurettes on playing the characters, behind the voices, colorful crayon lines, creating The Hero of Color City, a sing-along, crayon juke box music medley, artwork and drawing galleries and kid-friendly recipes from Bumble Bee.
