On the weekend of 28th April 2012, Disney Nature’s African Cats will be released in the UK. Narrated by the Oscar award winning Samuel L. Jackson, Disney’s real life biopic follows the lives of the adorable lion club Mara, the single cheetah mother, Sita, and Fang, the leader of a pride of lions as they battle to survive and protect their families from rival packs and predators.
African Cats is sure to make the hearts of many melt as they watch young lions and cheetahs grow into adults during the two year period that Disney filmed them. Filmed in the iconic Masai Mara in Kenya by Alastair Fothergill African Cats features breathtaking landscapes guaranteed to get your heart racing.
Kate Middleton and Prince William have led the way, attending a royal premiere earlier in the week and saying afterwards “Wow – that was amazing… there’s more drama in that than EastEnders.” See for yourself at selected theatres near you. We recommend watching this delightful film at the BFI’s Imax theatre in Waterloo to make the most of the breathtaking scenery.
If you stay at Kicheche Mara Camp, our favourite camp in the area, the guides have promised you back-stage passes to see the ‘stars’ of the show, and whilst they can’t guarantee autographs, they will ensure you get great photographs! Watch the official trailer below.
