From the Serengeti Plain of Africa to a proper London boarding school, Eliza Thornberry — television’s favorite 12-year-old who can communicate with animals — embarks on an epic adventure like no other in her first film odyssey, “The Wild Thornberrys Movie.” Bringing the precocious young globetrotter face-to-face with evil poachers who are endangering the lives of nature’s wild creatures, this thrilling new animated feature is based on the Emmy-nominated (2000-01) Nickelodeon hit series “The Wild Thornberrys.”

“The Wild Thornberrys Movie” delves even deeper into the multidimensional characters and free-spirited, action-packed lives of the extraordinary Thornberry family of nature documentary filmmakers. Featuring the guest celebrity voices of Brenda Blethyn, Rupert Everett, Lynn Redgrave, Marisa Tomei and Alfre Woodard, along with voices of series regulars Michael Balzary (AKA Flea), Jodi Carlisle, Lacey Chabert, Tim Curry, Danielle Harris and Tom Kane, “The Wild Thornberrys Movie” is a full-fledged family experience and a vicarious adventure for all ages.

In the film, as greedy poachers descend upon the jungles of Africa, Eliza arrives at one of the most decisive moments she’ll ever face and alone holds not only the fate of the entire Thornberry clan in the balance, but also that of her unique extended family of animals. As she stands to lose the two things that have made her life every kid’s dream — her ability to talk with animals and her experiences in traveling around the world — Eliza must find the strength and courage to save the ones she loves…and time is running out!
