Adventures In Zambezia Blu-ray Review & Giveaway #Zambezia CLOSED

I'm always interested in animated movies that kids can enjoy AND learn a life lesson from. When I was invited to an online screening of Adventures In Zambezia, the first thing I did was read the movie synopsis.

As I read, I grew excited to see how Kai, the young falcon, would learn about friendship, team work AND save his father. I was hoping the movie would have a good balance of fun and teaching moments for kids.

Adventures In Zambezia

When a spirited young falcon named Kai (Jeremy Suarez, TV's "The Bernie Mac Show") learns of Zambezia, the fabulous city of birds, he leaves his remote country home against the wishes of his father (Samuel L. Jackson). But when his dad is captured by an evil lizard who plans to attack the city, Kai must learn the importance of teamwork if he's to rescue his father, save his new friends and help keep Zambezia lizard free.

Samuel L. Jackson, Abigail Breslin, Jeff Goldblum and Leonard Nimoy give voice to this beautifully animated fun-filled adventure the whole family will enjoy.

Now available on DVD and Bluray

After watching Adventures In Zambezia, I'm happy to say the movie held up to my hopes. There was lots of action and adventure balanced with moments where Kai (and children) learned about being responsible, believing in yourself and working together with others.

The storytelling, animation of the birds flying and the different bird personalities was really well done. The movie has funny moments for kids to enjoy but I have to warn that the "bad" lizard is very scary. There's also the subject of Kai mothers death which is mentioned within the story. If you have younger kids this might be something you need to think about. I think older kids can understand and parents can discuss the issue of death and how it affects Kai and his father.

You can buy Adventures In Zambezia Blu-ray at Walmart and visit the official Adventures In Zambezia Facebook page.
