Trivia

The attack method used by Gogo against the lizard is the same method used by the Royal Air Force No. 617 Squadron, the "Dambusters", during Operation Chastise on May 16-17 of 1943, in which 19 Avro Lancaster bombers flew low over the Eder, Möhne and Sorpe (Röhr) rivers in Germany's Ruhr Valley and released specially-developed "bouncing bombs" to attack German dams. Two dams (the Edersee and the Möhne) were breached, 8 aircraft were shot down, 53 aircrew were killed, and 3 were taken prisoner. See more »

Brilliant!
3 November 2012 | by (Cape Town, South Africa) – See all my reviews

An amazing gem set in an imaginary world in the heart of Africa right where it plunges over the magnificent Victoria Falls, arguably one of the greatest waterfalls in the world.

What as incredible setting for a 'coming of age' story that should appeal to everyone, young an old.

While the animation might be a little dated, this in no way detracts from the way the tale is told - the characters are just as relevant now as ever they were.

Fresh! Different! Yet familiar enough for youngsters to identify with and enjoy.

Go and see this movie.

You'll be so glad you did.
