Parents need to know that Khumba is a South African animation feature about a zebra born without all his stripes. The movie has a positive message about finding your place even when you feel like an outsider. There's some violence (a character is crushed by rocks, a mother dies of sickness) and language ("ass," "dumb," "lame brains"), but ultimately there's a feel-good ending.
