Madagascar

Plot Summary:

 

“I I Like To Move It Move It

I Like To Move It Move It

I Like To Move It Move It

Ya Like To (MOVE IT!)”

Yup, Madagascar is one roller-coaster ride that the kids are going to love!

The film opens with Marty the Zebra pining for the wild on his tenth birthday. Living in New York’s Central Park Zoo, Marty and his friends – Alex the Lion, Gloria the Hippo, and Melman the Giraffe – have spent all their years inside this concrete jungle.

The adventure begins when Marty escapes from the zoo with a crack quartet of penguins – Skipper, Rico, Kowalski, and Private – and his three friends follow him, trying to make him see sense but to no avail. On reaching Grand Central Station, the animals are mistaken to be aggressive and are shipped off to a Kenyan wildlife preserve by the zoo authorities.

But when the crafty penguins hijack the ship and events take an unexpected turn, Alex, Marty, Melman, and Gloria find themselves in Madagascar! Marty is ecstatic that he is finally out in the wild, but Alex, who is used to being treated like a king in the zoo, is desperate to go back. On the island, the gang wins the trust of a pack of lemurs, led by witty and conceited King Julien. Alex and gang also save the lemurs from their wretched enemies, the fossa. But the toughest challenge is for Alex, who is desperate to indulge his carnivorous cravings and is longing for his favorite steak.

The penguins return and the animals leave with them, intending to head back to their beloved home at the zoo. But do they? Check out Madagascar – Escape 2 Africa to find out!

What the Kids Can Learn:

There is a lot that the kids can learn from this fun animated film! Apart from the many humorous jokes, the adorable characters, the stunning visuals, and an entertaining story, Madagascar offers kids the opportunity to pick up a lesson or two. An adult can use instances from the film to highlight to kids the value of friendship, of sticking together even in troubling times, of adjustments, and of never giving up hope. There are strains in friendship, caused by Alex’s need for meat, but it is apparent that these are friends for life when Marty thinks of saving Alex’s life, in spite of endangering his own life in the process.
