Stu­dio: Trig­ger­fish An­i­ma­tion Stu­dios (South Africa) Di­rec­tor: An­thony Sil­ver­ston Dis­trib­u­tor: Mil­len­nium En­ter­tain­ment Re­lease Date: De­cem­ber 6 (lim­ited) Synop­sis: When his su­per­sti­tious herd blames a young half-striped ze­bra (Jake T. Austin) for a deadly drought, he sets off on a dan­ger­ous jour­ney to find a leg­endary wa­ter­ing hole, team­ing up with a sassy wilde­beest (Loretta Devine) and an in­se­cure ostrich (Richard E. Grant) to save the an­i­mals of the Great Ka­roo while evad­ing the evil leop­ard Phango (Liam Nee­son). The Odds: The sec­ond fea­ture out­ing from South Africa’s Trig­ger­fish has the ben­e­fit of a more ex­pe­ri­enced crew and the as­sis­tance of writ­ing col­lab­o­ra­tor Jonathan Roberts, one of the word­smiths for Dis­ney’s The Lion King. The stu­dio’s pre­vi­ous film, Zambezia, earned lo­cal ac­co­lades as well as An­nie nom­i­na­tions, so the lit­tle ze­bra that could has a chance at glory.
