Product Description

German-made CGI-animated children's feature. In Africa's Okavango Delta, all the animals are waiting for the annual flood, which should have come gushing down from the mountains weeks ago. As both their thirst and anxiety increase, cheeky meerkat Billy and his friend Socrates, a gentle mountain lion, decide to gatecrash an international summit at a luxury hotel resort in an attempt to discover where the precious water has gone. Along the way they meet various animals from all around the world, who have flocked to Africa in search of a better life, and enlist their help in their quest.

Product Description

The 3D experience on disc 1 requires a 3D enabled TV and player

The animals in the African savannah are confused: where has all the water gone? It should have come gushing in from a mountain canyon a long time ago. Their thirst and worries continue to grow, especially since the only little water hole is being closely guarded by ferocious buffaloes and rhinos. The brave little meerkat Billy and the peace-loving lion Socrates take off in search of water. The hotel owner Smith had a huge dam built and is wasting all the water for a luxury hotel. And of all places, it is here that politicians are holding a conference about the protection of the environment. So, the animals answer to this with their own conference: elephant Angie calls on everything that can run, fly, trample or crawl to defend themselves, in what becomes the kick-off to a turbulent offensive full of beastly tricks.

Special features:

  • Disc one: 3D Feature - 3D experience requires a 3D enabled TV & Player (also playable in 2D) + Trailer
  • Disc Two: 3D Feature - Includes 2 pairs of 3D glasses

3.0 out of 5 stars 3D without new TV 6 Oct 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Just want to clarify the details on the 3D version. There are 2 discs, and two 3D versions of the movie.

Disc One contains the normal 2D movie, plus a 3D version that requires a newer 3D compatible BluRay player and TV.

Disc Two has a 3D version that will work on (probably) any BluRay player and TV, and these require the use of red/blue glasses, of which, 2 are included within the case. The red/blue is much better than the red/green used over 20 years ago and allows for better colour definition and the 3D is pretty good. As I don't have a 3D TV, I can't compare it to the newer 3D version on Disc One.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great adaptation 24 Jun 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Bought this as one of a few budget titles to sample the 3D capabilities of our first 3D TV. I wasn't expecting too much for the film, but was very pleasantly surprised.

It's an adaptation of 1949 German anti-war story of 'The Animals' Conference' by Erich Kastner, brought up to date with an ecological theme. I think a good compromise was reached, with a degree of 'Disneyfication' and holding true to the 'message' of the original.

I liked the characterisation and there's an excellent cast - Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley, Dawn French, Omid Djalili, Jim Broadbent, Andy Serkis (Gollum inn Lord of the Rings) and Vanessa Redgrave to name a few - though I did find a very high-pitched James Corden a bit irritating as Billy the meerkat.

A bit sentimental in parts, I really enjoyed it, as did our children. A bonus was the excellent use of 3D throughout - for example butterflies which appeared to fly out of the screen towards the viewer and the hunter's long-barrelled rifle firing a tranquilliser dart out of the screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars GRANDCHILDREN LOVE IT 13 Jan 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A very funny film which is lovely to watch with the grandchildren, some funny flatulence moments from one of the characters in the film which is always a source of great amusement with my 8 year old grandson. Would recommend for a family fun filled time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring 4 Mar 2014
By Lee Loo
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Maybe kids would enjoy this film but I slept halfway through.
Not even the 3D effects and the colorful characters kept me awake.
The storyline was not quiet exciting nor interesting despite the top-notched voices.
