Watch Air New Zealand's latest safety video - featuring a 600 strong all-Kiwi cast

Air New Zealand has released its latest in-flight safety video, with the airline abandoning big overseas names in favour of a more authentic Kiwi flavour

Dubbed It's Kiwi Safety, the 4 minute 37 minute video features a 600-strong cast, including actor Julian Dennison, local musicians Kings, Theia and Randa as well as talent from 30 community groups across the country.

Manurewa High School's Rewa All Stars also make an appearance.

It was filmed in Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin, Balclutha, Hokitika and Naseby in Central Otago, and has a 90s theme.

The airline's previous Antarctica-themed video was criticised by families of those killed in the Mt Erebus disaster.
