    Has anyone seen this movie? If so please share your opinions about it. Some great shots of African wildlife and the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. Disney did not overdo the story line (you know they had to have one), and represented the harshness of nature in a relatively realistic fashion. I took the Princess as her mothers day gift.[​IMG] Honest, she said she wanted to go.

    I love anything about lions. It's on my "to-see" list. Well, it's the ONLY one on the list.

    Quote:Lots of coverage on both lions and cheetahs. There are five mature male lions featured in parts of the movie, and they are flat out awesome. The cheetah and lion interactions are really interesting as well as the cheetah footage. Both the Princess and I really enjoyed the movie.

    Was there any killing or any other graphic "nature-y" things that went on? I wanted my kids to see it but I was scared that it would show the food chain of events. I know it's Disney, but I wasn't sure. I know its all just nature but my kids and I prefer not to see the more graphic way of a lions life. Looks like a cute movie!

    I prefer it not be too "Disney", personally, but love real life lion stuff. Will have to check this one out.

    Quote:There were two "kill" scenes. One by the lions and one by the cheetah. They were not particularly graphic. There was also a scene where hyenas killed two baby cheetahs- this was not pictured, but the little boy sitting in front of us started [​IMG].
