"I think first of my family when I’m deciding to take a job, like any parent. The One and Only Ivan is a book that Shiloh loved and brought to me, and that’s when I joined the development of the film years ago. Shi has a sanctuary for wounded elephant and rhino in her name in Namibia and my character in the film, Stella the elephant, calls sanctuaries ‘where humans make amends’. I’m filming a Peter Pan prequel next called Come Away. The kids love the connection with Great Ormond Street children’s hospital, which owns the rights to Peter Pan."

Her decades of experience in creating rich fantasy worlds populated by complex characters make her a dream director for this project, which explores how fantasy functions as a way to cope with reality. Her thoughtful approach to filmmaking and indomitable talent make her the perfect person to bring this story to life.”
