Jungle Beat: The Movie is a charming, family friendly adventure of epic proportions. One morning, the animals of the jungle wake up to discover that they can speak. They're even more amazed when they learn the reason why: There's an alien in the jungle. Little FNEEP has come to conquer the planet and has brought some crazy tech with him, including a translation device that lets them talk for the first time. Unfortunately for the intergalactic Scaldronian empire, but fortunately for the jungle, Fneep is a terrible conqueror: He's homesick, he's crashed his ship, and he's no match for the antics of MUNKI, TRUNK and the gang. Our heroes won't let a little alien conquest get in the way of a good time or a new friend. As the animals help him on his journey home, he learns that friendship could be the greatest force in the universe. But is it a match for a spaceship full of aliens?

User Reviews

Superb writing and graphics
30 June 2020 | by jmh-52035See all my reviews

Although an animated movie originally made for infants/ children their is no denying that the older age brackets can enjoy the charm and clever writing this title has to offer too. Fun characters and a lovely message, well worth the hour and a half watch. Hoping we see a sequel in the near future too.
