1. Khumba (2013)

African Animation

Director: Anthony Silverston

A zebra with partial stripes is born into a solitary, secluded herd that is devoted to stripes. Soon, the unusual foal was held responsible for the Great Karoo’s drought after rumors of his curse began to circulate.

The outcast zebra leaves the safety of his house knowing that he cannot survive in the herd without all of his stripes when even his father, the herd’s leader, accuses him of causing the lack of rain and the subsequent death of his mother.

Khumba ventures outside the fence, where she is exposed to the vicious Leopard, Phango, who rules the Great Karoo’s waterholes and terrorizes the animals. Unusual partners an ostrich and a wildebeest save Khumba from a savage wild dog. In contrast to other wildebeest, Mama V is a self-described free spirit who does not desire to be your typical stay-at-home mother.

Ironically, she raises Bradley, an ostrich that is flashy but insecure and compensates excessively for his scraggly feathers. The two join Khumba on his expedition in the hopes that their own hunt for a secure waterhole is done when a mystical mantis draws a map of what may be taken as either water or stripes for the foal. – African Animation

African Animation

Director: Toby Genkel

Richard, a teenage sparrow who was reared by storks after being abandoned at birth, thinks he is one of them.

Richard sets out on his own for the South, determined to show that he is, in fact, a stork. But his sole hope of success and learning to accept himself as he is depends on Olga, an odd owl with an imaginary buddy, and Kiki, a narcissistic, disco-singing parakeet. – African Animation

5. Jungle Beat: The Movie (2020)

He crashed his ship, is homesick, and cannot handle the antics of MUNKI, TRUNK, and the group.No amount of extraterrestrial domination will stand between our heroes and a good time or a new buddy.

6. The Lion of Judah (2011)

African Animation

Director: Roger Hawkins

The story follows the exploits of a brave lamb and his stable companions as they attempt to stay away from the sacrifice altar the week before Christ was crucified. It is a heartwarming account of the Easter narrative told through the eyes of a motherly cow, a despondent donkey, a pedantic rat, a rambling rooster, and a faint-hearted horse (Monty).

This wonderful period drama, with its huge settings, takes the audience on an emotional roller coaster. This humorous journey follows the animals as they attempt to save their companion from death from the stable in Bethlehem through the great temple in Jerusalem and onto the hillside of Calvary.

The story flawlessly transitions from the biblical tales of Palm Sunday, Jesus turning the tables in the temple, Peter’s betrayal, and the crucifixion and resurrection to a suspenseful, heartbreaking finale. Judah, the lamb with a lion’s heart, sees it as a tale of bravery and faith.

For Jack, the disgruntled donkey, it turns into a crucial journey of optimism. It presents an opportunity for Horace, the dishonest pig, and Drake, the naive rooster, to act inappropriately and cause trouble. – African Animation

Old Yeller recalls that Big Arlie, a previous owner who had adopted him when he was young but passed away from an illness, left him to fend for himself. The following morning, Jock runs across Ol’ Bonnie, an elderly man who also has a dog.

They attempt to drown him in a pail of water, but Old Yeller rescues Jock and then exhorts him to live independently after the farmer dies. The puppies are later left orphaned by the farmer’s death, and Jock is unable to locate Old Yeller. – African Animation
