A trailer for an animated series based on the Hawaiian myth of Pele, the volatile volcano goddess, and her loyal younger sister, Hi‘iaka, who is born from an egg. Pele travels across the ocean from the land of the gods and finds a home in Hawaii, where Hi‘iaka's adventures begin.
Although this isn't a real show, I think the myth would make a fantastic animated series. It's full of colorful episodes of girls fighting monsters in a lush, semi-mythical land. Plus, its focus on complex relationships between sisters and female friends makes it an empowering story for girls.
This is my senior seminar project for my illustration major at Washington University in St. Louis.
