Pandora Rocks is a 90-minute animated feature, building off the myth of Pandora’s Box. The Greek myth tells of a woman being given a mysterious box by Zeus. She opens it, and all the evils and misery of the world as we know it, are released.
The film follows a 16-year-old, demigod Pandora on her journey to put the Evils back in the box. Using her battle bass, forged with the lightning of her father, Zeus, she takes on the Evils in musical battles to save her reputation and humanity. The film uses the Pandora’s Box myth as a lens for when kids experience what it’s like to grow up facing all the dangers in the world for the first time, including the inevitable truth that your parents aren’t the perfect gods you thought they were.
