Madagascar 2- Escape To Africa

The movie picks up from right where they left! The beloved friends; Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippo and Melman the Giraffe are finally headed back home on Air Penguin Plane designed by the ingenious penguins.

Unfortunately they crash in the deep jungle of African savannah. Co-incidentally this happens to be the place where Alex grew up as a cub and realizes he was cub nabbed. He is accepted by his parents and community but is not liked by Makunga who wants to become a leader himself and somehow manages to banish Alex from the community.

Marty has to deal with his insecurities, when he finds out that all zebras are alike not just in appearance but in their tricks too. Melman has to come to terms with his feelings for Gloria. King Julian, Maurice and Mort tag along for the ride as well adding to the chaos and fun.

What the kids will learn from it:

Kids will get their dope on friendship, teamwork and also about family and its importance. Parents can teach kids, how it’s ok to break away from stereotypical mindsets and be different like Alex who is expected to be a scary Lion but is a lovable Lion who likes to dance and perform. When Alex gets banished he tries hard to win his family over and he does so by finding out the cause of scarcity of water. This teaches kids to  face any problem that comes their way. Kids can also learn that though we all are similar in many ways we are unique in many ways as well, just like Marty.
