Madagascar - Alex is the king of the urban jungle as the main attraction at the New York Zoo. He and his best friends Marty, Melman and Gloria have lived their entire livers in blissful captivity, complete with lavish meals and their own park views. But that's all about to change.
Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa - The animals try to fly back to New York City, but crash-land on an African wildlife refuge, where Alex is reunited with his parents. Unfortunately, life in Africa is not as wonderful as it first seems. Makunga, still determined to take the position of alpha lion, reminds Zuba that Alex must complete a traditional lion coming-of-age challenge. Alex, thinking that the challenge is a dance contest quickly finds out it's actually a fight against the strongest lion.
Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted - Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple and of course, King Julien, Maurice and the Penguins are all along for the comedic adventure.
