Adventures in Zambezia Review

This
was a very colourful film, filled with plenty of giggles and some beautiful
scenic animation of waterfalls and the sky lit up. I watched it tucked up with youngest; it was an indulgent treat
watching a whole film with him (in between running off to keep him topped up in
snacks!).

I
enjoyed the African theme and the accompanying music. I guess it’s along the same lines as the Legends of the Guardians
film, but I still feel it offers plenty of original bits to make it worth a
watch and adding to a family DVD collection. 

The
story is all about Kai a little falcon that wants to explore, making friends
and craves adventure. He feels he is
just surviving with his dad, being trained to be a capable flyer but restricted
by boundaries (and the requirement to keep building a wooden fence!). He decides to head to Zambezia, a beautiful
city in a treetop filled with a colony of birds. But a mean nasty lizard has plans to overtake the city with the
help of a side-lined group of birds, the Marabou Storks.

It is exciting seeing the birds
work together to save the day (and stop everyone becoming lizard snacks!). My son really enjoyed the film, he laughed
out loud, he got really involved when the bad guys were up to mischief and sighed
with relief when the good guys were saved!

This film will be released on the
18th of March and is available on pre-order for £9.70 from Amazon.
