Yellowbird is a teeny tiny orphaned bird. A bird that has never left the nest, has no family, yet desperately wants one… That is, until he finds himself leading a flock on their annual migration to Africa.

A hero’s journey… with a most unlikely hero. All action family adventure, about one hapless bird who must learn to fulfil his destiny – adapted by super talented writer Cory Edwards.

Just when it’s time to migrate to Africa, Darius, the elder of the flock, and veteran migration guide, gets injured by a big hungry cat. Yellow Bird (Gus) is on hand to hear his final secrets of flight and by default becomes the new leader of the flock. Yellow Bird has no experience of migration or leadership but he must learn fast.

Lacking faith in himself, lost in the Arctic, Yellow Bird must confront his fears and follow his instincts.

This charming family tale is a story of self-fulfilment, believing in oneself and of learning to live and work within a group. From animation studio TeamTo and designer Benjamin Renner.
