English versionEdit

In 2016, Grindstone Entertainment Group produced an English dubbed version of the movie known as Elephant Kingdom, which was released on DVD via Lionsgate Home Entertinment. The first Khan Kluay film was dubbed into English by the Weinstein Company under the name The Blue Elephant. The English version of the second film lacks any ties to the first Khan Kluay film in the writing. Consequently, there are numerous changes in the English version compared to the original film and even the first Khan Kluay film. For example, all the voices in the original are replaced by new actors in the English version, with Cary Elwes replacing Jeremy Redleaf as Khan Kluay, Alexa PenaVega replacing Miranda Cosgrove as Chaba-Kaew, Garrett Clayton replacing Martin Short as Jai, while Patrick Warburton voiced Nanda Bayin. The names of the characters are also changed, Khan Kluay's name is changed to Rok, Chaba-Kaew's name is changed to Melody, and Jai's name is changed to Wingman. This version of the movie can also be found on YouTube.
