Ileana’s Movie Review: African Cats

Starring: Lions, Cheetahs, Hyenas, and Samuel L Jackson

Summary: The latest installment of the Disneynature series takes us to the African savanna. This movie captures the family dynamics of lions and cheetahs struggling for survival in Kenya. Sita is a cheetah and single mother to five cubs. She must defend her babies and teach them to be self-sufficient. On the other side of the river is Fang, a proud lion who must protect his pride of lionesses and cubs from rival lion Kali. In the middle of the fight is Layla, a lioness who must ensure that her cub Mara will be taken care of by the pride after she’s gone.

This real-life version of “The Lion King” is filled with lovable characters and breathtaking scenery. While it was released on Earth Day, African Cats seems more like a tribute to all mothers out there. We see these amazing creatures face unspeakable odds, but they stop at nothing to protect their young. This movie shows us that a mother’s love has no limits and transcends all living creatures.
Trivia: Disneynature is a division of Disney devoted to making wildlife documentaries. Founded in 2008, they release a movie each year on Earth Day to showcase the wonders of nature. Earth (2009), Oceans (2010), African Cats (2011), and the upcoming Chimpanzee (2012).
