Get ready for a wild African adventure with an adorable, and rather unique, young zebra called Khumba and join him on his journey across the Great Karoo desert:
Khumba, released by Transmission Films, tells the story of little Khumba, known within his herd as the half-zebra because he is only half striped. Some members of the herd even believe he brings bad luck, life is not easy for Khumba who is confronted with his different looks day in day out. When rain fails to fall and the water hole runs dry the blame falls on Khumba, it’s a heavy burden to bear and when he hears of a mysterious water hole that may help him get those missing stripes he leaves the herd.
On his hunt for the water hole Khumba meets a range of interesting animals, some friendly and some not so much. He travels the highs and the lows, the mountains and the valleys and the hot and dry desert, dreaming of finding his missing stripes. All he wants is to be the same as other zebras, believing that this will break the curse and solve the important drought issues.
Khumba is a lovely story about friendship, self acceptance and believing in yourself, it teaches children a very valuable lesson: don’t try to change who you are, real beauty can be found in being yourself and accepting your differences. At 82 minutes it is quite a long movie for young children so our 3-year old didn’t watch it completely but master 5 did and loved the story, he really got the message which was lovely to see.
Khumba is available on 3D Blu-ray + Blu-ray Combo (RRP $34.99) and DVD (RRP $29.99) from leading retailers across Australia.
