Storyline

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.

Cute, and fun to watch.
3 July 2018 | by pwargoSee all my reviews

We stumble across this movie, and were pleasantly surprised. It's cute, funny, and easy movie to watch - it's not going to wow are you with A complicated plot , but this is not the genre for that. Not every movie has to be a masterpiece. There's nothing wrong with something that's just entertaining. This movie is entertaining, with some really impressive animation and visuals.
