From the producers that brought audiences Shaun the Sheep Movie, Paddington and A Turtle’s Tale: Sammy’s Adventures, The Wild Life arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital), and On Demand November 29 from nWave Pictures, Studiocanal and Summit Entertainment, a Lionsgate company. The perfect film for families to watch together over the holidays, this wildly adventurous animated comedy begins as Mak the parrot and his friends discover a mysterious visitor washed up on their island’s shore. Embark on a tropical misadventure with a group of quirky animals and their human castaway, Robinson Crusoe. When savage cats invade their paradise, Robinson and the island’s animals team up to defend themselves and their home in this fun-filled movie.
My family had hoped to see this in theaters, but time got the better of us and we missed our shot. So we were super excited when we received an advance copy on our doorstep! We watched it that night and I must say, it really was entertaining for the whole family. Our 3 year old especially loved it and all of the animals. She has now named all of her toy animals after the characters in the film. This movie is coming along with us in the minivan on any road trip as both girls zoned in to it and watched the entire thing! I highly recommend this for families with little ones.
About The Wild Life
From the over-exuberant parrot Mak to the snack-obsessed tapir Rosie, from the persnickety echidna Epi to the acrobatic pangolin Pango, from the ditzy goat Scrubby to the commonsensical kingfisher Kiki and the always-cool chameleon Carmello, things are larger-than-life on a tropical isle that is pure wild animal paradise. Then Robinson Crusoe, a marooned human, arrives in the midst of a furious storm, and their lives are forever changed by this bewildering new “creature.” No matter their differences, castaway human and quirky animals embark on an hilarious new adventure, building the island’s first tree-house and surviving together. But when two conniving members of the animal kingdom — the savage cats Mal & May – pounce into a battle for control of the island, Crusoe and his animal posse must uncover the true power of friendship against all odds (even savage cats). Summit Entertainment presents, Studiocanal and nWave Pictures present, in association with Anton Capital Entertainment S.C.A. and Illuminata Pictures.
