Calling all dog lovers! This is the ultimate dog mission, where an oddball team including dogs, cats, horses, cows and 101 Dalmatians work together to escape the evil Cruella Deville who wants to make a fur jacket out of the puppies.

Single father Marlin, the overcautious father of Nemo, is constantly on edge as his son’s yearning for adventure grows by the day. When Nemo is snatched from the ocean Marlin must overcome his fears and brave the open waters, meeting a host of curious and crazy characters on the way!
What do you get when you cross a lion, zebra, giraffe and hippo? A group of great friends living in Central Park zoo, of course. The four friends find their lives turned upside down when Marty the zebra and Gloria the hippo prompts the gang to sneak out of the zoo at night and explore New York. Unfortunately, they get caught and consequently shipped off to Madagascar. The gang, Alex the lion in particular, soon realise where the delicious, juicy steaks came from in the zoo!
The Lion King
It’s got everything you’d want from a film; tension, passion, friendships, humour and to top it all off an amazing soundtrack.
We follow the story of Simba, the son of king-of-the-pride Mufasa, destined to follow in his father’s pawsteps to become the next leader. Simba’s destiny hit early following Mufasa’s tragic death at the paws of his twisted and jealous brother, Scar.
Threatened by Scar’s presence, Simba runs away, meeting two unlikely friends who help him learn the language of hakuna matata (it means no worries).
For years, chickens have been trying to escape Mr & Mrs Tweedy’s farm. Just when the chickens are about to give up hope, an answer flies right into the coop. Following his grand entrance, Rocky the Rooster begins to teach the hens how to fly, despite the fact that he is actually fooling them all. Against a deadline (literally), tensions rise when the chickens realise the Tweedy’s have intentions of turning them into chicken pie
