Los Angeles, USA
The Colombian Sofía Vergara premieres this “Koati” film, an animated film that describes as a “Latin to Latino project” and that features the collaboration of stars from the story of Marc Anthony, Karol G, Carlos Rivera, Adriana Barraza and Eva Luna Montaner.
“There was a lack of a film that was like ‘El Rey León’ to highlight the fauna and flora that exist in Latin America and the world and many Latino children who live in the United States in the know”, explained the actress and business in an interview with Eff.
Since the major Hollywood studios have become interested in Latin America for films such as “Coco” by Pixar and “Encanto” by Disney, Vergara pushed for the filming of “Koati” with the aim of achieving their own Latinos. they explained the wonders of their countries.
“Latin people are very present and it would be crazy to neglect this public”, reasoned the Colombian woman, who in addition to giving voice to one of the characters worked as a film producer.
“Koati” is carried out by three animals characteristic of Latin America: Nachí, un coatí; Xochi, a monarch moth and Pako, a crystal frog.
The three characters will embark on an adventure to prevent Zaina, a choir snake with the voice of Vergara, from destroying their land.
“If I needed a suitcase in the film and I was enchanted, it’s a person – the actress remembers -. It’s a suitcase, but with spark, es comic and joke. Then it was thought that I was the perfect one to make the persona”.
The majority of animals and landscapes that appear in history is in danger of extinction, a point that the ecological organization World Wildlife Fund (WWF, in English) was included in the project of the past spring and, after the beginning, will present several educational products to raise awareness about the protection of nature.
“It’s important to educate the kids so that they don’t continue to damage their naturalness, this film will make many children lose their minds and come to think about them”, I argue.
