Animals United on DVD - Review and Giveaway

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Earlier this month, Alliance films released ANIMALS UNITED on DVD, a children's movie featuring the voices of Andy Serkis, Vanessa Redgrave, Jim Broadbent and Stephen Fry. Having been likened to Madagascar, the movie takes place in Africa with the savannah as the beautiful backdrop for this story.
When the African savannah runs dry, Billy, a courageous meerkat, and Socrates, a laid back lion, prepare to go the distance in order to find water. On their journey they cross paths with a rooster named Charles, who tells them of a place where the water still flows. But by the time Charles leads them there, humans have already staked their claim - a local entrepreneur has constructed a dam in order to divert the water to his luxury hotel. Now Billy and Socrates must call in all of their animal friends in order to teach humans a thing or two about sharing the land!

The visuals in this movie are very good and my kids enjoyed watching the animal characters. While the basic story line is alright, it didn't leave me yearning for a sequel. I asked my daughter, age 6, if she would watch it again and she replied with a resounding, "Yes!" Her favourite part? It was the scene where Billy was trying to escape the humans and ended up swimming with ferocious piranhas and later got whisked away with the water when the pool was drained. My son, age 3, didn't seem nearly as interested but still watched on. Here is the Animals United trailer to give you a better idea of what it's about:
