Shot over the course of two and a half years using state-of-the-art camera equipment, AFRICAN CATS captures the awe-inspiring beauty of one of the wildest places on Earth as it tells the dramatic and often intimate stories of Mara, an endearing lion cub who strives to grow up with her mother’s strength, spirit and wisdom; Sita, a fearless cheetah and single mother of five mischievous newborns; and Fang, a proud leader of thepride who must defend his family from a rival lion clan.
An awe-inspiring adventure blending family bonds with the power and cunning of the wild, AFRICAN CATS captures the real-life love, humor and determination of these majestic kings of the savanna in an exciting, heartwarming and visually stunning tale that is sure to engage children and adults alike.

African Cats gets to you pure and simple. Seeing their lives and how it closely resembles ours. They love each other They fight for each other. As a mom there were some parts where I was just crying like a baby. Put it this way when the movie trailer makes you cry you know it’s going to be a tearjearker of a movie. Samuel L. Jackson did a great job narrating it. It flowed really well. My kiddos enjoyed it too. They liked seeing the “behind the scenes” as they call it of a family. Overall this is both a great learning experience as well as just a good film.
