About this deal

María Alicia Delgado as Abuelita Guadalupe, an elderly woman who is the owner of the "Granjas el Pollon" farm. As with Un gallo, Zacarías has faced challenges in composing music in animated films, as it required the balancing of adventure, drama and comedy. This 2021 film is the latest instalment of their Little Eggs franchise, getting a UK release presumably to cash in on the Easter school holidays.

The fourth film in the Huevos franchise, as well the second CG installment following Un gallo con muchos huevos, it was released in Mexico on August 12, 2021. It just keeps on getting worse as Toto turns into an overprotective dad who sees danger around every corner. However, Duquesa found her way inside and locked all the doors, in attempt to steal back the eggs for her own plans.

It was followed by a limited theatrical release in the United States a few weeks later on August 27, 2021 by Pantelion Films. Along the way they meet up with a band of African animals, led by a lion king, who come to their aid.

The film's overprotective theme for Toto's father character came from co-director Rodolfo Riva Palacio Alatriste's own parenting experience with his daughter, Dione, who voiced Uli in the film.Little Eggs: An African Adventure could also give you the chance to talk with your children about stereotypes, and how not all people of a nationality are bad. Just then, Toto and his crew, along with animals he recruited, battle against the guests and the bandits. At first, Toto is excited until the children express desire to play in the outdoors, causing Toto to worry and immediately become over protective. Meanwhile, on the way home, Toto once again becomes worried for his children after Duquesa's encounter and tears up their winning ribbons, making them afraid of him.

Then along comes an actual baddie: the Duchess, a Cruella de Vil knock-off who drives into town with a couple of goons.

I was puzzled by the egg aspect of the film: is it weird that Toto’s sprogs are talking eggs, not hatched chicks?

The film was later released in the United States in limited release on 27 August 2021 through Pantelion Films. Toto and Di were eventually thrown off the plane, and Willy, Bibi, Bacon, and Toporocho saved them with a parachute.

The film utilized full computer-generated imagery animation for the second time, following Un gallo con muchos huevos with about an expected overall increase of fifteen percent of image quality up to the fifth installment, which is currently in development.
