The tale’s protagonist is a young orphan named Peter Augustus Duchene, who resides in Baltese with his guardian.
One day, he overhears a fate teller telling a client that his long-lost sister is still alive and that he may find her by tracking an elephant. Peter goes out to find the elephant because he is desperate to find his sister, but he quickly learns that the animal belongs to a magician named Leo Matienne.
An enigmatic and eccentric man named Leo Matienne promises to assist Peter in his search for his sister, but only if Peter can demonstrate that he genuinely wants to do it.

A trailer explanation of the much-awaited movie The Magician’s Elephant.
The movie’s idea is briefly conveyed to the audience in the trailer, making it very simple for viewers to support Peter immediately. A fortune teller advises a little kid named Peter, who is looking for his long-lost sister, to follow the magicians’ elephant in the trailer.
The King begs the elephant to assist him in return for Peter completing a series of seemingly tricky feats. In a setting with animation reminiscent of Netflix’s Pinocchio or perhaps Laika Studios’ ParaNorman, the youngster makes his way through the streets of his town on a desperate journey to find his sister.
