Delgo, a computer-animated fantasy film released December 2008 by Freestyle Releasing, the first film from Atlanta, Georgia's Fathom Studios, a division of Macquarium Intelligent Communcations, who began the project as early as 1999.
In a divided land, combining a magical world, heart-pounding action, and forbidden romance, Delgo is the story of an rebellious and unlikely hero and his clandestine love for a Princess of an opposing race, who must prove his innocence, rescue a princess, reveal a traitor, end a war orchestrated by a power hungry villain, and unite the peoples of Jhamora.
The land of Jhamora is torn apart by the mutual prejudice of two peoples -- the winged Nohrin, masters of the skies, and the terrestrial Lockni, who harness the mystical powers of the land. When Delgo (voiced by Freddie Prinze, Jr.), a reckless Lockni teenager, forms an outlawed friendship with the spunky Nohrin Princess Kyla (voiced by Jennifer Love Hewitt), hostilities between the two peoples escalate, setting the stage for an exiled Empress (voiced by Anne Bancroft) to exact her revenge and reclaim her rule. With the help of a devious traitor to the throne, Raius (voiced by Malcolm McDowell), and two bumbling servants, Spig (voiced by Eric Idle) and Spog (voiced by Brad Abrell), Empress Sedessa kidnaps Princess Kyla and frames Delgo for the crime, igniting a war between the nations.
Desperate to clear his name and rescue his love, Delgo and his faint-hearted best friend, Filo (voiced by Chris Kattan), must put aside their differences to join forces with Bogardus (voiced by Val Kilmer), a hard-boiled Nohrin General with a penchant for gambling. Together, they escape from jail and fly wild beasts to the mysterious land of Perran, where they encounter bizarre creatures and discover more than just a kidnapped Princess.
While Sedessa prepares for her invasion of Jhamora, the Nohrin King (voiced by Louis Gossett, Jr.) and the leader of the Lockni Stonesage Council (voiced by Michael Clarke Duncan) lead their armies into battle and our heroes' return to Jhamora is a race against time.
