Khumba is a 2013 3D South African computer-animated adventure comedy film directed and produced by Anthony Silverston, written by Silverston and Raffaella Delle Donne. The film stars the voice talents of Jake T. Austin, Steve Buscemi, Loretta Devine, Laurence Fishburne, Richard E. Grant, AnnaSophia Robb, Catherine Tate, and Liam Neeson. A half-striped zebra named Khumba (Jake T. Austin) is born into an insular isolated herd of all-striped zebras where his mother is Lungisa (Anika Noni Rose) and his father is Seko (Laurence Fishburne). Rumors that the strange foal is cursed spread and before long he is blamed for the drought that sets into the Great Karoo. As he matures, Khumba remains ostracized by most of the herd with the exception of Tombi (AnnaSophia Robb), a female zebra friend close in age and uncomfortable in the herd due to her tomboyish manners.
