I've been a huge admirer of wild cats ever since i saw Born Free as a little girl. Lions, cheetahs, tigers, servals you name it. I've watched many video's and t.v. specials on them over the years but few compare to DisneyNature African cats.
Showing both good times and bad this is an acurate depiction of these cats lives. Disney did an admirable job of making it as family friendly as possible. Yes, some scenes may upset very young viewers. If you're worried about a 'Bambi' moment you may want to preview it first.
However i strongly recommend you get this film and save it for when they are ready.
It's a beautiful, honest movie about some of this world's most majestic and inspiring beings. African Cats and other DisneyNature films are 'living' memories of our world. A world in which sadly lions and cheetahs may soon be a thing of our past.
I eagerly look forward to getting the dvd of this. It's only available in a dvd/blue ray combo but as long as there's a disc i can use with my dvd player, ok.
I also like how it shows that big cats have their own problems too and that they aren't trouble-free bullies, like so many other animal programs make them out to be. Of course, this movie has animal death, but then again, what do you expect? It's a movie about LIONS and CHEETAHS--of course they are going to show how they get food! I have read too many reviews on other sites from people complaining about Disney showing how lions and cheetahs kill for food, and claiming that they ran out of the theater CRYING with their kids in tow. Okay, idiots, if you want to see a movie about the lives of LIONS AND CHEETAHS, common sense tells you that you will see some blood. If your common sense does not tell you that, then that's your own fault for being ignorant. I mean seriously. There was even death and violence in "March of the Penguins"! Even so, the killings in "African Cats" are not very graphic. Really, you just see a hunt, a strike, and maybe some blood on the cats' faces after they've eaten, but it's nowhere near as graphic as some drama queens make it out to be.Read more ›
African Cats follows events in the lives of Mara, a lion cub who is under the tutelage of her mother, Layla; Sita, a cheetah who is raising five hungry newborns; and Fang, a male lion who attempts to protect his family and territory from a rival lion. Survival on the bitter savanna is a perpetual struggle. Mara is only six months old, and as a lion cub has a 1 in 5 chance of surviving to adulthood. Life seems simple for a cub, awaiting kills and playing with siblings while learning gradually how to fend for themselves; Mara's days are numbered, however, as the mother is nursing an injury that is slowing her down. Sita must regularly leave her cubs to hunt for food, leaving them vulnerable to attack. Even if she makes a kill, cheetahs are regularly chased from it by hyenas or lions. Cheetahs are built for grace and speed, not for standing fights.Read more ›
Adults who have even a minimal layman's knowledge of these magnificent animals will probably not get much new information, but they will be treated to incredible visuals that will unfortunately lose much of their power on most home screens. Filmmakers Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey have really captured some extraordinary images. Children are likely to be captivated. My own four-year-old son was challenged a bit by the 90 minute running time, but was frequently drawn in by what was on the screen and finally declared it to be "so much fun." The narration features the anthropomorphism and sentimentality that plague so many Disney nature films (i.e., "To Mara, Fang is the best daddy ever"), but the essential quality of the filmmakers' work shines through.

Great photography… But Sam Jackson's narration is so misplaced. He's a poor choice for this type of piece. He's way too "street" for classic material like this. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Utah Purchaser
