Madagascar 3 is the third film in the epic adventures of the animated New York Central Zoo denizens you all know and love. The Madagascar trilogy has followed these motley beasts from New York to Africa and now, to Europe! Madagascar 3 continues the journey of its stars with Marty The Zebra, Alex The Lion, Julien The Lemur and Gloria The Hippo, among them. This time around, the crew gets trapped in a travelling circus in Europe as they desperately and hilariously attempt work their way back home to the Big Apple (New York City).
Madagascar 3 continues in the tradition of previous DreamWorks Animation and Hollywood animated hits, such as Kung Fu Panda, Shrek, How To Train Your Dragon and of course, both of the early Madagascar films. The voice cast is sterling, featuring some of the funniest comedic names in the industry. With Chris Rock, Ben Stiller and the always crazy, Sacha Baron Cohen helping to bring these characters to life, how can you go wrong? The cast also features strong female names in Jada Pinkett-Smith and Jessica Chastain, among countless more star voices.
