Scene from (Walt Disney Studios)

The "Disneynature" series of feature-length documentaries continues with this Samuel L. Jackson-narrated portrait of lions and cheetahs.

The story it weaves considers the relationship between parent and child ... as evidenced by animals willing to make any and all sacrifices to ensure the safety of their young ones. A portion of the movie's first-week video sales goes to a preservation effort being staged in conjunction with the African Wildlife Foundation. DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries. *** (G) (Also on Blu-ray)
