Los Angeles: DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming animated feature Abominable will hit the theatres in India on 27 September. Directed by Jill Culton, the film narrates the tale of a wide-eyed, mystical creature, a Yeti named Everest and his newly found friend, Yi.

“When teenage Yi (Chloe Bennet) encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building in Shanghai, she and her mischievous friends Jin (Tenzing Norgay Trainor) and Peng (Albert Tsai) name him “Everest” and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth. But the trio of friends will have to stay one step ahead of Burnish (Eddie Izzard), a wealthy man intent on capturing a Yeti, and zoologist Dr Zara (Sarah Paulson) to help Everest get home,” the official plotline of Abominable reads.

The film‘s voice cast includes actors like Chloe Bennet, Tenzing Norgay Trainor, Albert Tsai, Eddie Izzard, Sarah Paulson, Tsai Chin and Michelle Wong.

Culton, who has also written the script, said her inspiration to write the character of Yeti came from her dogs. “I’ve had huge, 90-pound-plus dogs for most of my life. They are my kids; I’ve had bloodhounds mostly, and they’re sloppy, slobbery and hilarious. I could just see myself connecting through the relationship that Yi has with the Yeti, and I drew the initial sketches of them together. I initially wanted him to be huge, like the kind of dogs I’ve had. Additionally, all my love for nature got poured into this — including my experiences camping and travelling,” the director said in a statement.

Abominable is produced by Suzanne Buirgy and Peilin Chou of Pearl Studio. Tim Johnson, Frank Zhu and Li Ruigang are the executive producers. Todd Wilderman has co-directed the movie.

Universal Pictures is distributing the film in India. It will be released in 3D and 2D.
