The Road to El Dorado Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Dreamworks SKG's second feature-length animated film blends comedy and drama in an unusual historical adventure. Two genial swindlers working as stable hands stow away with Cortez, the legendary Spanish conquistador, as he searches for El Dorado, the lost City of Gold. Luck smiles on the two con men, and they happen to find a settlement in Mexico that they believe is El Dorado; however, while the two exotic strangers are at first embraced by the Mayan people, they've also arrived just in time to be offered up as the next human sacrifice. The Road to El Dorado was directed by [[Performer~P105820~Don Paul~donpaul]], who helmed the first DreamWorks animated feature, [[Feature~V174226~The Prince of Egypt~theprinceofegypt]]; [[Performer~P181578~Will Finn~willfinn]], a featured animator on [[Feature~V4522~Beauty and the Beast~beautyandthebeast]] and [[Feature~V1338~Aladdin~aladdin]]; [[Performer~P273682~Bibo Bergeron~bibobergeron]], who worked on [[Feature~V17073~Ferngully: The Last Rainforest~ferngully:thelastrainforest]]; and [[Performer~P266906~David Silverman~davidsilverman]].
