Ryan is a lion who wants to go to the wild, where his dad (Samson) once lived. When he gets himself shipped to Africa, his zoo friends (and Samson) work together to bring him back. When they get to Africa, however, the animals find themselves in a pile of danger. They have to fight an evil wildebeest called Kazar. But Kazar's safe compared to the other danger on the island- a volcano that's on the edge of eruption. Can the animals find Ryan and get out of Africa before the volcano erupts in so little time?
A whole new breed of tourist.

If you watch very closely the edge of Larry's mouth during the first scene in the garbage truck drifting through New York, Larry opens his mouth, and there is a very visible bright line where the interior of his mouth should line up with his lips, but doesn't. It's a tear in the CG model, and should have been fixed before the character was animated. What you're viewing through the tear is the New York city scape. See more
So there I was, face to face with the biggest, meanest leopard on this side of the Serengeti. And...
You roared so loud, his spots flew clean off. Dad I've heard this like a billion times.
Do you know the one where I made the laughing hyenas...
The croc attack?
Yeah, you do that.
