A Monkey's Tale
Carlton are to release A Monkey's Tale onto Region 2 DVD on 2 April. The DVD will retail for £15.99.
The press release gives a good description of the film so I'll reproduce it here:
This action packed, heartwarming adventure story offers delightful entertainment for all the family. A MONKEY’S TALE tells the story of two tribes of monkeys who were separated long ago by a great cataclysm. Ignorance and superstition run so deep that the Laankos who live on the ground the Woonkos who live in the treetops, live in fear of each other.
Life continues in this way until one day Kom (Matt Hill), a mischievous Woonkos’ teenager, swings down a ravine and loses his grip. Destined for certain death, Kom has a lucky fall into Laankos’ territory where his life is spared by the Laankos’ King (Michael York) who transports him into the monkey castle. Terrified when he first regains consciousness, Kom meets Master Martin (Michael Gambon), the King’s physician and Gina (Sally-Anne Marsh), one of the King’s maids who very quickly educate him into the runnings of the court. The Laankos’ King is a lonely dreamer and finds Kom entertaining company, which of course, makes him very unpopular with the King’s courtiers, led by the evil Chancellor Sebastian (John Hurt), his comic side kick Gerard (Rik Mayall) and the traitorous Governess.
Kom falls in love with Gina, a feisty maid, and together they uncover Chancellor Sebastian’s evil plot to overthrow the King and seize power. After much duelling, flying, laughter and tears, Kom and Gina manage to save the day.
