Whispers, an innocent and adorable baby elephant who's just learning to walk on his own four feet, finds himself separated from his loving mother Gentle Heart.

Editors Note
Note Filmed in Botswana and featuring live-action footage of elephants, WHISPERS is the tale of a baby elephant's struggle to survive when his herd is attacked by "Takers" (poachers). As the Takers approach, Whispers' mother, Gentle Heart (voiced by Anne Archer) admonishes him to run as fast as he can, promising him that she will find him later. Whispers (voiced by Debi Derryberry) finds another herd led by Half-Tusk (voiced by Joanna Lumley). Half-Tusk's sister, Groove (voiced by Angela Bassett) usually brings up the rear, ensuring that the ranks are safe, but when she gets tired of taking orders from her sister, Groove leaves the herd with Whispers underfoot. She becomes a reluctant mother figure, growing more and more attached to the youngster as they face constant danger from poachers and lions, as well as the lack of water that accompanies the dry season. WHISPERS is a heartfelt tale of the power of love, the importance of family and the strength of promises. Some of Hollywood's best-known talents lend their voices to WHISPERS: AN ELEPHANT'S TALE, including Betty White, Alice Ghostley, Joan Rivers, and Tone Loc.
