Jungle Shuffle


It’s a jungle out there! Manu and Sacha are two young coatis living in the Mexican rainforest. They are deeply in love with each other! The only problem is that Sacha is the daughter of the coati tribe’s king and Manu is a bit of troublemaker. When Manu’s escapades leave the tribe’s most worshipped statue destroyed, the King exiles Manu to live on his own in the jungle. A year later the fumbling youngster has turned into a strapping young male, but one thing hasn’t changed: Manu is still in love with Sacha. When Sacha gets captured by poachers, Manu sets out on a thrilling adventure to save the coati princess and redeem himself to the tribe.

Dove Review

“Jungle Shuffle” is an animated movie that speaks of true love, helping others and the dangers of the jungle. In the Mexican rainforest, the animals are afraid of the humans who are capturing their friends and using them for strange experiments by a mad doctor. These humans are also cutting down the trees, their habitat.

The animals come together to rescue their friends and save their forest with the help of Manu and the jungle guardian. This is a charming, comical movie that brings to light the problems in the jungle and the importance of saving those that live there from evil. The entire family will enjoy and be entertained. I must warn viewers that there are a few scenes that may scare young viewers, but in the end all will be entertained in the jungle.

We award the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages to “Jungle Shuffle.”
