Lions and cheetahs are the stars of Disneynature’s third release, a new film which takes place on the real African savanna and comes in time to celebrate Earth Day (April 22). Narrated by Oscar-nominated Samuel L. Jackson, African Cats is a true story featuring Mara, a growing cub, Sita the mother cheetah to five mischievous newborns, and Fang the lion who must protect his family from rivals.
During the film’s opening week (April 22-28), a portion of the proceeds from that week’s ticket sales will be donated to the African Wildlife Foundation through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund to protect the Amboseli Wildlife Corridor, a passage between the Amboseli, Tsavo West and Chyulu Hills National Parks that is frequently used by lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, giraffes and a host of other animals in the African savanna.
U.S. Release Date: April 22, 2011
