South African studio Triggerfish has recently garnered attention globally due to two of their CG-animated features, Zambesia and Khumba, the former of which already saw releases earlier this year in key territories.

Triggerfish Studios’ Zambesia is worth noting for being the first(see note below) South African full length animated feature. It focuses on the story of an adventurous young falcon who leaves the comforts of his own home in order to expand his horizons and find the legendary bird city of Zambesia. The film also boasts of an impressive voice cast list that includes Leonard Nimoy, Abigail Breslin, Jeff Goldblum, Samuel Jackson, Jim Cummings, Richard E. Grant, Tom Kenny, Phil LaMarr, Corey Burton and Tress MacNeille.

The project is a labor of love for Triggerfish owner and CEO Stuart Forrest, who is also putting hte finishing touches on the studio’s second feature, Khumba. Forrest joined Triggerfish back in 2003 as a junior animator, already nurturing big plans for the studio.
