WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Daisy (Rice), an impossibly cute and eternally optimistic young quokka, has a dream to win the annual “World’s Scariest Animal” competition. She soon finds a coach in washed-up former champion Frankie Scales (Neill), a Saltwater Crocodile, who reluctantly guides young Daisy through her training and eventual competing in the tournament itself…
