The Pirate Princess introduces movie-goers to Zasha, a young woman who finds herself at a crossroads, when she discovers she was actually born a princess to an ousted royal family. She is torn between the only family she has ever known, a loving band of marauding pirates, and reclaiming her true identity. The Pirate Princess offers a rich blend of fantastical monsters, mysterious magic and high-stakes action. The film’s storyline and narrative are being crafted to establish a universally embraceable tale of family loyalty, support and unconditional love.

Chelsea and Matt Giegerich bring a deep biography in comedy and family-friendly entertainment to The Pirate Princess. The duo recently penned the Sony Pictures Entertainment feature film, Party Boat (starring comedian Jay Mohr), and are currently in development on a film with Jamie Foxx, and his producing partner Datari Turner. The Giegeriches have also developed projects for Nickelodeon, Olive Bridge Entertainment and Cloud 9 Entertainment. As best-selling authors, rights to their series of mystery novels, The Apple Orchard Mysteries, have been acquired by Fezziwig Studios, with the books surpassing 50 million page reads on Amazon.

“The Pirate Princess is a perfect example of the inventive stories, rich characters and eye-catching animation that is making Hollywood sit up and take notice of Curiosity Ink Media,” explains Marks. “It’s imperative that The Pirate Princess meets the filmgoing expectations of today’s families, and Chelsea and Matt are the ideal pairing to infuse this classic adventure tale with a contemporary swagger, laugh-out-loud comedy and family-friendly adventure.”
