Many scenes using computer animation allowed this movie to display many animals of Africa and this was a big plus. I have younger kids and this kept them entertained despite not being a fully animated motion picture. While my kids enjoyed it, it was tough for me as an adult to sit through the entire story line even though my wife and I watched the whole thing by ourselves. There are some twists and turns that simply aren't realistic but neither is the plot. If you're looking for a feel good kids movie without needing every scene to be completely realistic then you'll be happy with this. I was glad I got the movie but I think there could have been a stronger attempt to make it stay closer to reality.
