Storyline

Jungle Beat: The Movie is a charming, family friendly adventure of epic proportions. One morning, the animals of the jungle wake up to discover that they can speak. They're even more amazed when they learn the reason why: There's an alien in the jungle. Little FNEEP has come to conquer the planet and has brought some crazy tech with him, including a translation device that lets them talk for the first time. Unfortunately for the intergalactic Scaldronian empire, but fortunately for the jungle, Fneep is a terrible conqueror: He's homesick, he's crashed his ship, and he's no match for the antics of MUNKI, TRUNK and the gang. Our heroes won't let a little alien conquest get in the way of a good time or a new friend. As the animals help him on his journey home, he learns that friendship could be the greatest force in the universe. But is it a match for a spaceship full of aliens?

perfect for a lighthearted, family movie night

Jungle Beat is the perfect pick for a lighthearted family movie night. Featuring fun characters and an engaging plot for kids, the film has some funny scenes with various safari creatures and hit on good themes (love, kindness, etc). It especially hits on theme of friendship which I thought was well woven in as the characters journeyed across the Jungle to help their newfound friend.
