Meerkats

This film is no longer playing at The Franklin Institute.

Unafraid. Unstoppable.
Unbelievably cute.


Join Klinky and her clan as they meet all the challenges of living in the Kalahari Desert, always remembering the meerkat "golden rule:" Stick together and keep calling!

Narrated by Oscar-nominated actress Emily Watson, Meerkats 3D takes audiences on a journey with a family of meerkats as they cope with the twists and turns of life in the Kalahari Desert. The film begins as matriarch Klinky's most recent litter emerges from the burrow for the first time. Klinky and her family, including elder children and regular babysitters Ms. Bean and Harry, must endure turf wars from rival families, attacks from vicious predators big and small and internal family turmoil.
