Colorful, comic bird tale with lots of cartoon action.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Adventures in Zambezia should appeal to most kids who like animal characters with personality and humor, and a story with some suspense. Set in Africa, the movie introduces bits of the geography, language, and melodies of the continent, as well as many native birds and creatures. Best for kids who can distinguish cartoon violence from real violence, as there's plenty of action (chases, captures, a vicious monitor lizard) to go with the bright, colorful animation and a mostly conventional story. At the heart of the tale is a young peregrine falcon who, in the course of the film, learns about the death of his mother. In addition, one villainous marabou falls to his death as his brother watches. There are lots of positive messages about teamwork, inclusiveness, and growing up.
