Take the animated adventures of a family of wildlife documentary filmmakers out in Africa home by way of Paramount Home Entertainment's release of THE WILD THORNBERRYS MOVIE on DVD and home video. The movie, produced by Klasky Csupo and Nickelodeon Movies, based upon the hit TV series, features the Oscar-nominated song by Paul Simon, "Father and Daughter" as a music video. The star-studded voice cast includes Brenda Blethyn, Lynn Redgrave, Marissa Tomei, Rupert Everett, Alfre Woodard and LL Cool J with series regulars Tim Curry, Jodi Carlisle, Lacy Chabert, Tom Kane, Danielle Harris and Flea from The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The first big-screen outing for the wildlife reporters features Eliza Thornberry, who has the power to communicate with animals, who must rescue a cheetah cub and a herd of elephants from ruthless poachers. She braves the dangers of the Serengeti, a stint at a crusty London boarding school, as well as the antics of her pet chimp, Darwin.
Other DVD extra features include THE WILD THORNBERRYS GAME and the theatrical trailer. It lists for $29.99 DVD and $20.99 VHS. For this and other Paramount Home Entertainment releases, check out www.paramount.com/homeentertainment
