Triple bill of animated family features. In 'Khumba: A Zebra's Tale' (2013) Khumba (voice of Jake T.
Austin), a zebra born with only half his stripes, is picked on and ridiculed by the members of his stripe-obsessed herd.
When a drought is declared upon the Great Karoo, Khumba is blamed for bringing a curse to their land.
After a mysterious creature appears in front of him showing a map leading to water, Khumba sees an opportunity to earn his stripes and sets off in search of a new life.
When his path crosses that of Phango (Liam Neeson), a superstitious, blind leopard, Phango reveals that he has been waiting a long time for Khumba because, according to an ancient myth, a half-striped zebra is destined to make Phango the most powerful hunter who ever lived. 'Jungle Safari' (2012) tells the story of young leopard cub Yuvi (Tara Strong) as he is taken on a trip through the jungle by his mother Begum (Vanessa Williams) and her friends Alex the parrot (Tom Kenny), Bagga the bear (Brad Garrett) and Bajrangi the monkey (Carlos Alazraqui).
With the jungle and its inhabitants in danger of being wiped out by humans and bulldozers, Begum vows to get her child to safety, whatever the cost.
Finally, in 'The Great Bear' (2011), 11-year-old Jonathan (Oliver Lambert) and his sister Sophie (Lilly Lambert) are embarking upon their first unaccompanied trip to their grandfather's house and Jonathan cannot wait to have some adventures.
Although warned by their grandfather that they are not to play out in the yard, Sophie gets stuck there when Jonathan refuses to let her in the house.
When Jonathan hears screams, he goes out to find that Sophie has disappeared.
As he sets off into the depths of the forest in search of his sister, Jonathan discovers that she has not simply disappeared; she has been taken by a giant, 1000-year-old bear...
