The Wild

The Wild

The New York Zoo is a happenin’ place for the resident animals, until one of their own is mistakenly shipped to the wild. In an effort to save his son, Samson the lion (Kiefer Sutherland) and four of his zoo animal friends break out of the zoo and embark on a dangerous mission. Samson, his best friend Benny the squirrel (Jim Belushi), Bridget the giraffe (Janeane Garofalo), Larry the anaconda (Richard Kind), and Nigel the Koala (Eddie Izzard) must brave perils of all kinds on land and sea as they try to bring home Ryan, their favorite lion cub.

Disney’s computer animated movie The Wild looks just like another recent movie, Madagascar. Although the movie similarly contains New York Zoo animals who break out and try to rescue a friend, according to Disney, the movie has been in the works for nine years. Like Madagascar, The Wild has a great vocal cast and the writers and producers are highly acclaimed as well. It will be interesting to see if Disney can pull off a blockbuster hit with The Wild despite coming on the heels of an almost identical film.
