Teenage Zef and little brother, Tutu, are two happy elephants. Who wouldn't be with the biggest backyard in the world to play in? - the wild plains of Africa. They merrily chase zebras, ostriches and warthogs, scarring them silly. There is a whole bunch of fun stuff to be doing and Zef is just the big brother to show Tutu how to get into all kinds of (mischievous) trouble. Until their mother and the family herd are taken from them in the dark of one dreadful night by The Badness. To cover up the truth of their fate from Tutu, Zef makes up a story about a rainbow taking their mum to the sky. Now, Tutu needs to find that rainbow and their mum. Zef wants to find a new herd, a new family. Their journey in search of both takes them on a high adventure - with the help of some ditsy rainbow Cranes, a very unusual vegetarian vulture and a few surprising types with some entertaining takes on the jungle. Along the way Zef and Tutu are joined by three other orphaned animals - Chump, a chimp ... Written by
I thought this was a cute movie. Granted it's not high cinema, but if you like animals, seeing gorgeous scenery and are interested in conservation I thought it was a fun movie to watch. I enjoyed seeing the baby lion, cheetahs, elephants, and giraffe. It offers a good point about the 'badness' of poaching and is great for young kids. The plot was simple enough to follow, but had enough depth to build a connection with the characters. It reminded me a little bit of Milo and Otis. I know a lot of people have said on the boards they got bored, but if you enjoy seeing animals on screen in a natural setting it's worth the 96 minutes of your time (especially if you have kids). I think the company who filmed this did a very good job showcasing South Africa. It was good to show the poachers actions as wrong, but also showing that we as humans have a chance to really help save animals such as the Elephants, Chimpanzees, Lions, Cheetah's, Giraffes, etc...In addition to this film I also recommend Duma
