Wild Thornberrys Movie
The film begins with a brief recap for those unfamiliar, with how 12-year-old Eliza Thornberry got her magical powers that makes her able to communicate with animals. When poachers kidnap a baby cheetah named Tally, Eliza almost loses her life and is soon shipped off to a boarding school in England by her grandmother. But Eliza defies her family and returns to Africa so she can reunite Tally with his mother. But there she discovers that poachers are planning to kill a horde of elephants during the darkness of a solar eclipse. Then Eliza is forced to sacrifice her magical powers in order to save her airhead sister Debbie from certain death. And now she has to figure out how to save the jungle problems with compassion alone. The film's captivating spirit is heightened by a soundtrack featuring songs by Paul Simon and Peter Gabriel and despite the simple 2-D animation, The Wild Thornberrys Movie makes for a surprisingly cinematic experience, so much so that some of the film's more suspenseful sequences may not be appropriate for younger children.
