Meet Ozi, a little orphan orangutan who’s about to make a big difference when she goes on an epic adventure to save her forest home.


Separated from her parents when their forest home is destroyed, Ozi is taken in by kind wildlife sanctuary owners who keep her safe and slowly teach her to communicate through sign language. With the combination of her new skills and natural talent for social media, Ozi soon has a worldwide following.

When she learns that her parents might be alive, Ozi sets off on a quest to find them and to tell the world what is happening to the rainforest before it’s too late. With help from new friends, cheeky monkey Chance and loveable rhino Honkus, Ozi discovers that one voice really can change the world.

Apart from being a clever twist on your usual animated talking animals story, Ozi: Voice of the Forest is notable for at least one other thing: it appears to have been Donald Sutherland’s last performance. He voices an albino crocodile. Other important players are RuPaul as Gurd, Laura Dern as Ozi’s mother, and Dean-Charles Chapman (Game of Thrones) as Chance.

Ozi: Voice of the Forest is directed by Tim Harper, produced by Leonardo di Caprio (among several others), and features music by Richard Harvey and Elwin Hendrijanto. in theaters everywhere starting August 16, 2024.
