Synopsis / Plot
Behold this critically acclaimed feature-length fantasy created, written, and directed by Richard Williams, the three-time Academy Award(R)-winning animator. Almost 30 years in the making, it incorporates extraordinary M.C. Escher-like backgrounds with classic two-and-a-half-dimension hand-painted animation. In the ancient city of Baghdad, magically protected by three Golden Balls, a timid shoemaker named Tack falls for the lovely, adventure-loving Princess Yumyum. When a bumbling thief manages to steal the enchanted orbs, they fall into the hands of the wicked wizard Zigzag. Tack and the Princess must recover the magic balls, defeat the evil Zigzag, and save their beloved city from destruction!
