USA 2002 - Originaltitel: The Wild Thornberrys Movie - Regie: Jeff McGrath, Cathy Malkasian - Start: ohne Starttermin
The Thornberrys clan is on an African safari, and everythingís shaping up the way it usually does: Debbiís annoyed, Nigel and Marianne are wrapped up in their work, Donnieís doing his whole wild-boy thing, and Elizaís chatting with her chimpanzee buddy, Darwin. Thatís right, chatting. See, a long time ago, a shaman granted Eliza the ability to talk to animals in return for a good deed sheíd done. Itís an ability thatís gotten her into more truly wild adventures than you can shake a tail feather at.
This time, things take a turn for the worse when a poacher in a helicopter swoops out of the African sky and snatches one of the cheetah cubs Eliza and Darwin are travelling with!
Now itís up to Eliza and her primate pal to brave the dangers of the Serengeti (and a stuffy English boarding school!), solve a mystery involving a herd of elephants, find out who the poachers are and bring the cub back alive. Thatís quite a tall order for a pre-teen girl and her severely skittish chimpanzee chum, but if anybodyís up to the task, itís Eliza! Text & Foto: Paramount Pictures, Verleih: UIP
