He embarks on an exciting adventure through the rainforest with his friend Beni the duck. Along the way Riki helps other animals in trouble and every time he helps, he is rewarded with a new skill that will help him on his quest.
Riki the Rhino was originally produced in South East Asia in the Indonesian language. For the UK release, the studio brought in Jennifer Castle and Paul Reynolds to voice Riki and Beni. With the script adapted by BAFTA-nominated Tim Clague and Danny Stack.
As well as being great family entertainment. Riki the Rhino has very current themes about natural conservation and it raises awareness about the plight of Sumatran rhinos. Who’ve been hunted almost to extinction for their horns.
“What a gorgeous and entertaining animated tale for the summer” said Keith Leopard, President Uncork’d Entertainment. “The little ones that loved Madagascar and Over the Hedge will no doubt be very keen to see it after they see the trailer”.
