Director Sean Patrick O’Reilly Talks About His Animated Feature ‘Heroes of the Golden Mask’

GameStop, Inc.

Director Sean Patrick O’Reilly Talks About His Animated Feature ‘Heroes of the Golden Mask‘ Available on VOD, Friday, June 9, 2023.

Sean Patrick O’Reilly is the founder of Arcana Studio, a Canadian based graphic novel, film studio and animation house producing some of the highest quality products in storytelling. O’Reilly has now directed his latest animated feature, ‘Heroes of the Golden Mask‘, taking us on an adventure from modern day Chicago to the ancient (no longer) lost city of Sanxingdui rediscovered in the late 1980s.

O’Reilly and writers, Xiaoming Yao, John Wilson and Dennis Edwards, took the reality of this discovery and created a fantasy world of mysticism, time travel and self-discovery through the world of Charlie (Kieffer O’Reilly) in what is Christopher Plummer’s final film.

We chat with O’Reilly about being able to make a family film that does not want to make adults bash their own head against the wall, for it being, “too kiddie”, while not telling adult jokes that will make children have uncomfortable conversations with their parents about certain lines.

Heroes of the Golden Mask‘ not only has a fantastic cast but takes you on an action/adventure ride that a multigenerational family can enjoy together.

Heroes of the Golden Masks will premieres on digital in the North America and in theaters in Asia on June 9, 2023 from Gravitas Ventures.

Official Synopsis:

Patton Oswalt (‘Veronica Mars‘, ‘The Secret Life of Pets 2‘), Ron Perlman ( ‘Transformers: Rise of the Beasts‘, ‘Hellboy‘) and, in his final performance, the late Christopher Plummer star in ‘Heroes of the Golden Masks, coming to this from Gravitas Ventures.

Inspired by the ancient bronze masks of Sanxingdui discovered on the archaeological site of Guanghan in the Sichuan Province in the late ‘80s, director Sean O’Reilly’s adventure-packed animated treat centers on Charlie, a wise-cracking, homeless, American orphan who is magically transported to the ancient Chinese kingdom of Sanxingdui, where a colorful team of superheroes need his help to defend the city from a brutal conqueror. Charlie joins the heroes, and secretly schemes to steal the priceless golden masks that grant them their powers.

Produced by CG Bros Entertainment, Arcana Studios, and Golden Image Cultural Communication Inc, ‘Heroes of the Golden Masks also features the voices of Natasha Liu Bordizzo (‘Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon : Sword of Destiny‘), Byron Mann (‘Skyscraper‘), Osric Chau (‘2012‘), Kiefer O’Reilly (‘The Mighty Ducks : Game Changers‘),  and director O’Reilly.
