It is challenging to create a fantastic animated film that is on par with movies like "Shrek," "The Incredibles," or "Finding Nemo," but let's face it, someone has to try.

At the Central Park Zoo in New York, Alex the lion reigns as king of the concrete jungle and serves as the primary draw for visitors. He and his closest companions, a zebra named Marty, a giraffe named Melman, and a hippopotamus named Gloria, have lived their entire lives in contented captivity, enjoying the company of admiring audiences and having their food prepared for them consistently.
