Khumba: Review

Khumba The Movie

From Triggerfish Animation Studios, Cape Town, the talent that brought you Zambezia, comes an adventurous romp through the Great Karoo of South Africa with Khumba, the zebra.

Khumba, a half-stripped zebra, is rejected by a superstitious herd who think his lack of strips is the reason for a long-running drought. Khumba ventures outside the safe confines of the zebra’s fenced in watering hole in a bid to earn his stripes, and so the adventure begins. Pursued by a ferocious leopard, Phango, Khumba meets a whole host of weird, wonderful and mysterious animals, beasts and critters along the way.

Khumba draws you in to the adventure, and doesn’t let go until the last moment as Khumba and Phango face off, enthralling you with tense moments and moments of laughter.

The animation talent at Triggerfish has grown in leaps and bounds, the story of Khumba is engrossing, and the voice talent bears a list of some of Hollywoods top talent (Steve Buscemi, Loretta Devince, Laurence Fishburne and Richard E. Grant, to name a few), as well as several local South African voices.

Support South Africa’s growing animation sector, and see Khumba – a fun adventure for both young and old.
