Califia and the Timeless Sentries Episode II "Legacies" Streaming Now on YouTube!

Science Fantasy Motion Comic Explores the Continuing Adventures of Legendary Literary Heroes of Color

LOS ANGELES - Feb. 14, 2020 - PRLog -- Califia and the Timeless Sentries — the exhilarating science-fantasy motion comic is back! Episode II, "Legacies," is streaming now on

">YouTube!

Califia — the legendary Nubian Amazon queen after whom California was named — joins forces with Sir Morien the Black Knight, Mowgli, Madame Butterfly, Sycorax the Sorceress, William Tell, and Dawn Henry, a female descendant of John Henry, to defend the weak against the malevolent forces of a mysterious land where time, space, science and magic defy the laws of nature.  Set on the lost continent of Lemuria, people and things have been transported there through wormholes for centuries.  The question is — why and by whom?

Califia and the Timeless Sentries spotlights obscure or misunderstood classic literature characters of diverse backgrounds. The motion comic explores their proposed fates beyond the old tales and into alternative fiction.  The Sentries are reimagined as the gallant heroes their stories have always quietly demanded.

In
">Episode I, "Sacrifices," the Sentries were in a life and death battle against the bloodthirsty Moreauvians in an attempt to save the people of the Village.  The Moreauvians are paganistic were-beasts and the Village is one of the last human refuges in all of Lemuria.

In
">Episode II, "Legacies," Califia witnesses the death of a dear companion long ago at the hands of Serpentine. In present day Lemuria, the Sentries continue their mission to save the people of the Village from the blood-thirsty Moreauvian man-beasts. A high school aged girl from Harlem, NY learns about her amazing family legacy and a ferocious giant gorilla-lizard hybrid threatens the lives of the Sentries.

"Califia was always intended to be a clandestine heroine," says Califia and the Timeless Sentries creator Keith L. Underwood.  "I want the viewer to learn more about her at the same pace as the Sentries.  We dissect Califia's enigmatic past from their vantage point."

The motion comic process combines animation elements with a traditional comic book.  This method was chosen as a clever and cost-effective way to produce Califia and the Timeless Sentries.  It was also an effective way to create a presentation piece for potential usage in other forms of media.  View a full list of the cast and crew on IMDb.

Seoul unsure if North Korea will air World Cup qualifier

Feb 28, 2020

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea said Thursday it's unclear if North Korea will allow a live broadcast when it hosts the South's national soccer team for a World Cup qualifier in Pyongyang next Tuesday. Seoul's Unification Ministry, which deals with inter-Korean affairs, said the North has been ignoring South Korean calls for discussions on broadcasting the game live and allowing South Korean spectators to attend. "There has been no particular progress on the issues of (sending South Korean) cheering squads or providing broadcast coverage, so they won't be easy," since there's only a few days left until the game,...

Pell's appeal pitted word of former choirboy against priest

Feb 28, 2020

CANBERRA, Australia — Cardinal George Pell's appeal against his convictions for child molestation was largely a question of who the jury should have believed, his accuser or a senior priest whose church role was likened to Pell's bodyguard. Pell's accuser was a 13-year-old choirboy when he alleged that he was abused by then-Melbourne Archbishop Pell at the city's St. Patrick's Cathedral in December 1996 and February 1997. Monsignor Charles Portelli was a master of ceremonies at the 11 a.m. Sunday Masses where the choir sang. A chorister in the 1990s, David Dearing, told police that Portelli, Pell's right-hand man, was...

Chinese pop stars publicly back Beijing on Hong Kong

Feb 28, 2020

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing's growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month. Lay Zhang, Jackson Wang, Lai Kuan-lin and Victoria Song were among the K-pop singers who recently uploaded a Chinese flag and declared themselves as "one of 1.4 billion guardians of the Chinese flag" on...

Feb 28, 2020

HONG KONG — The Latest on Hong Kong protests (all times local): 7 p.m. At least three concerts by overseas performers have been canceled in Hong Kong as protesters forced the city's airport to suspend operations for a second day. K-pop star Kang Daniel and Scottish band CHVRCHES both announced Tuesday that they are calling off upcoming events. American singer-songwriter Alec Benjamin canceled an upcoming concert late Monday.

China bans movies, actors from prominent Taiwan film awards

Feb 28, 2020

BEIJING — China said Wednesday it was banning Chinese movies and actors from participating in Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, one of the Asian film industry's most prestigious honors, as Beijing ramps up economic and political pressure on the island it claims as its own territory. The one-sentence announcement on the microblog of China Film News, a newspaper affiliated with government film regulator, gave no reason for the suspension, but it comes amid rising tensions over Taiwan's refusal to recognize being part of Chinese territory to eventually be brought under Beijing's rule. Even without the ban, Chinese artists might have found...
