“Wizards of Waverly Place” and “The Fosters” actor, Jake T. Austin has lent his voice to an all new animated flick titled “Khumba.”

In the movie, Jake voices a Zebra who was born with only half of his stripes. Due to superstition, Khumba is cast out of his herd. He then embarks on a journey to find his stripes. Along the way, he meets some interesting characters and builds enough confidence to save all of the animals in the Great Karoo.

Other actors set to appear in the movie include Liam Neesan as Phango and AnnaSophia Robb as Tombi.

“Khumba” hits stores across the nation later this year.
