Synopsis

Anything can happen on Nim’s Island, a tropical paradise where imagination runs wild and adventure rules! A fun-filled adventure comedy and heartwarming story of self-discovery and friendship starring Oscar-nominee Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine), Jodie Foster (Flight Plan) and Gerard Butler (300), Nim’s Island will debut August 5th on DVD and Blu-ray Disc (BD) from Fox Home Entertainment and Walden Media. Talented young actress Breslin plays the lead role of Nim, a spunky girl living a high-tech Robinson Crusoe existence on a remote island with her scientist father and her exotic animal friends…an amazing life that mirrors that of her favorite literary hero – Alex Rover, the world’s greatest adventurer. When Nim’s father goes missing at sea during an expedition leaving Nim alone on the island, a twist of fate brings her together with Alexandra (Foster), the reclusive author of the Rover books. Now, together they must draw courage from their fictional hero, Alex Rover, and find strength in one another to protect Nim’s Island and discover they can both be so much more than they ever dreamed!

Based on the beloved children’s novel by Wendy Orr and directed by the husband and wife team of Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett (Little Manhattan), Nim’s Island is an “exhilarating and enchanting family picture” (San Francisco Chronicle) that delighted audiences with an inspirational tale of becoming the hero of your own story. Featuring DVD bonus materials including multiple behind-the-scenes featurettes with Abigail Breslin, over 25 minutes of deleted scenes and commentary with Breslin and Foster together, Nim’s Island will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S. / $43.98 Canada. Nim’s Island will also be available day-and-date on Blu-ray Disc high-definition format featuring four BD-exclusive interactive set-top games, priced at $39.98 U.S. / $49.98 Canada.
