elves & fairies: Bright


In Los Angeles, humans live with orcs and elves in a world where fantasy creatures do exist. Officer Daryl Ward and his orc partner Nick Jakoby are called to a disturbance where they arrest the elf Tikka (Lucy Fry) and her magic wand.

Soon they learn that Tikka is being hunted by the evil and powerful dark elf Leilah (Noomi Rapace), who is a member of the Inferni clan that wants to resurrect the Dark Lord to unleash darkness upon the world with the use of three magic wands. It turns out Tikka is a ‘Bright’, an elf who can wield a wand without it destroying her, and, of course, her wand is of those Leilah needs. All hell breaks loose.
