An image from Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

The dynamic and unlikely animal quartet have so far led us on a bombastic, enchanting journey from New York, to Madagascar, and even back in time to central Africa. Now, in another fruitless endeavour to return home to the familiarity of New York’s Central Park Zoo, DeamWorks’ favourite animal menagerie find themselves unexpectedly stranded in France, when the plane they have inexplicably procured crash lands on a suburban railway. Pursued by the fanatical Animal Control officer DuBois (McDormand), the displaced friends escape on a circus train, which, by chance, is en route to America.

After a disastrous performance at the Colosseum, the travelling circus flee to the Alps to recoup before continuing on to London. With the help of old friends and new alike, Alex (Stiller) refashions the archaic circus into an animal-only Cirque du Soleil. When their unforeseen success in London has them invited over to perform in New York, the four find themselves questioning what the meaning of home truly is.

Eric Darnell, Tom McGrath and Conrad Vernon are the trio of directors behind what has been hailed as the funniest, most spectacular, and highest-grossing of the Madagascar films. The riotously comic returning cast of Ben Stiller, Chris Rock (Marty), David Schwimmer (Melman), Jada Pinkett Smith (Gloria), Cedric the Entertainer (Maurice) and Sacha Baron Cohen (King Julien XIII), are joined by a wealth of new voices, including Jessica Chastain (Gia), Bryan Cranston (Vitaly), Martin Short (Stefano) and Vinnie Jones (Freddie), who deliver a fresh injection of comedy to this family classic.
