In an exciting first for South Africa, ‘Khumba’, the South Africa film about a half-striped zebra who is blamed for the drought by his superstitious herd and forced to go in search of a magic waterhole, will be released in Afrikaans in cinemas when it opens on 25 October 2013.

‘Khumba’ is the second animated feature produced by Cape Town-based Triggerfish Animation Studios, following the successful global release of ‘Adventures in Zambezia’. It features the voice of Liam Neeson as a malicious leopard, as well as the voices of Jake T Austin, AnnaSophia Robb, Lawrence Fishburn and Steve Buscemi. The film is directed by Anthony Silverston.

‘Khumba’ tells a story which is universal, so we are delighted to be able to release it in both English and Afrikaans as it will appeal to a wider audience,” says director, Anthony Silverstone.

“It’s a great family story about the struggle to feel comfortable in your own skin and learning to fit in.”
