Sinbad

Sinbad is a long time favourite and there have been many films and TV series. This is fantasy because there is no such thing as magic.

SINBAD (LATEST TV SERIES)

Sinbad is a thrilling, modern, magical reinvention of the famous legend from the Arabian Nights, starring Elliot Knight, Naveen Andrews, Orla Brady, Sophie Okonedo, Timothy Spall and Dougray Scott. On the run from his home town of Basra and under a curse from his grandmother for a killing that led to the death of his much-loved brother, the streetwise Sinbad finds himself cast out to sea. On board The Providence an intriguing band of travellers is thrown together, including taciturn Norwegian sailor Gunnar, the lithe and agile jewel-thief Rina, and haughty and aristocratic Nala. Completing the ship’s complement is the Cook, an odd-ball and eccentric character and the ship’s cerebral doctor Anwar. Surviving a violent storm, both Sinbad and his fellow ship-mates are forced to band together to face their inner demons, hopes, loves and fears. Our flawed hero embarks on an epic and emotional quest to rid himself of the curse and to embrace his destiny….

SINBAD: LEGEND OF THE SEVEN SEAS

Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas, an animated adventure from the DreamWorks studio, has little connection to the original fables from the Arabian Nights, but it's an entertaining romp none the less. Sinbad gets commissioned by the wicked goddess Eris to steal a magical book called the Book of Peace from the city of Syracuse--but the prince of Syracuse turns out to be a childhood friend of Sinbad's. So Eris steals the book herself and frames Sinbad, making the hero sail to the edge of the world to get it back, accompanied by Marina, a woman he's secretly loved for years.
