The Giant King


One thousand years after an epic robot battle, sworn enemies Zork and Pinky wake up with no memory of who they are or how they wound up chained together. In search of answers, they begin wandering the barren wasteland, looking for RAM, the creator of all robots, making new friends and a few enemies along the way. But when their memory is restored, will their newfound friendship prove to be stronger than an unbreakable chain?

Dove Review

RAM, the creator of all robots, sends Pinky to destroy the giant robot Zork, because apparently he is broken. Zork doesn’t want to fight. When Pinky captures Zork, a large explosion causes them to be buried for many years, until a junk robot discovers them.

After the robot battle is over 1,000 years later, Pinky and Zork find themselves attached to one another with a chain. As they travel together, they discover the meaning of friendship. Zork and Pinky meet some zany characters who help them when RAM comes after them to destroy them.

“The Giant King” is a wonderful, animated movie with charming robots that teaches valuable lessons about helping your friends, never abandoning your dreams, not giving in to peer pressure, and never giving up in the face of adversity. It is a wholesome, family movie. We are proud to award it our Dove Family Approved Seal for all ages.
