Jane Lynch, Danny Glover, Brooke Shields, Bailee Madison, and Drake Bell provide the voices for “Adventure Planet,” an animated adventure for the whole family out today on DVD.  Norva and Jorpe are siblings who live in the tropical forests of Northern Thailand, each of them endowed with unique gifts: Norva is an accomplished martial artist and an expert on local plants, while Jorpe has the ability to communicate with animals and plants. When excessive global warming creates fearsome “fire beasts” who begin to wreak havoc on the planet, world leaders develop a new solution called the “Cool Bomb” to combat the monsters. The problem is that the “Cool Bomb” will only make the crisis worse — and only Norva, Jorpe, and their friend Sam, the son of the President of Capital State, know the truth. As time begins to run out, the three friends must find a way to stop the “Cool Bomb” and prove that there is another way to save the planet.  Originally titled “Echo Planet,” this Thai film was renamed and redubbed for its US release.
