Storyline

A half-striped zebra is born into an insular, isolated herd obsessed with stripes. Rumors that the strange foal is cursed spread and, before long, he is blamed for the drought that sets into the Great Karoo. When even his father, the leader of the herd, blames him for the lack of rain and the subsequent death of his mother, the outcast zebra leaves the confines of his home knowing that he cannot survive in the herd without all his stripes. Khumba ventures beyond the fence - vulnerable to the ferocious Leopard, Phango, who controls the waterholes and terrorizes the animals in the Great Karoo. Khumba is rescued from an opportunistic wild dog by a quirky duo: a wildebeest and an ostrich. Mama V is a self-confessed free spirit who does not want to be the average stay-at-home mom, like other wildebeest. Ironically, she mothers Bradley, a flamboyant but insecure ostrich who overcompensates for his scraggily feathers. When a mystical mantis appears to the foal, drawing a map to what could be...

Good Movie (Minus the Cuss word)
11 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

This would have gotten 10 stars, but i had to rate it a 7 star because in the beginning Khumba the zebra said the word 'ass'. My 9 year old daughter and 3 year old son both looked at me when they heard the zebra cuss. For a kids movie i do not believe even the word 'ass' is acceptable. I couldn't believe the producers even thought it was OK. It was not used in the context of meaning donkey (if so it still wouldn't be right), it was in the context of calling another individual an ass, which is not showing any child good manner and being polite. Besides the cuss word this was a very cute and enjoyable movie. I did purchase this movie as it does show a good meaning of being different is OK.
