Because You d Zarafa
Family Animation Rated: 7+ (PG)20121h 18mOn: Prime Video Tags: Animal Based On True Story Adaptation Country: Belgium 

Inspired by the true story of the first giraffe to visit France, Zarafa is a sumptuously animated and stirring adventure, and a throwback to a bygone era of hand-drawn animation and epic storytelling set among sweeping CinemaScope vistas of parched desert, wind-swept mountains and open skies. Under the cover of darkness a small boy, Maki, loosens the shackles that bind him and escapes into the desert night. Pursued by slavers across the moon-lit savannah, Maki meets Zarafa, a baby giraffe – and an orphan, just like him – as well as the nomad Hassan, Prince of the Desert. Hassan takes them to Alexandria for an audience with the Pasha of Egypt, who orders him to deliver the exotic animal as a gift to King Charles of France.Zarafa featuring Max Renaudin and Simon Abkarian is streaming with subscription on Prime Video, available for rent or purchase on iTunes, available for rent or purchase on Google Play, and 3 others. It's an animation and family movie with a better than average IMDb audience rating of 7.0 (1,585 votes) and was well received by critics.
