Prince of Persia the movie will be released in May 2010. Disney will also include a junior novel based on the movie. I was given the task to translate it and the Indonesian version is scheduled to be released at the same time the movie will be played at theaters.
The story is about a street urchin named Dastan, whose life changed drastically after the King of Persia himself adopted him as his third son. Dastan then became one of the princes, had to maintain a prince’s duties, including become an infantry captain of the Persian army. By a hint from a spy, the Persian army—led by Dastan’s oldest brother, the next King of Persia—made a war campaign against a holy city. Little did they know that they would also face treachery, dark secrets, magic, elite assassins…and a beautiful princess, whose stubbornness shied that of a most uncooperative mule.
This is a story of bravery, action, loyalty and boy-meets-girl kind of love-and-hate.
