Some wonderful wildlife photography, especially for its time.
Feature length documentary, part of Disney's True-Life Adventure series.
This was the best reviewed of the series both at the time of it's release and in more recently reviews - and it really is quite good. While the music is over-the-top, and some of the narration is a bit Disney 'cute', a lot of the narration is really informative, and a lot of the wildlife photography is amazing, especially considering when it was done.
It's not really about Lions as much as the whole African world they lord over. There's some footage of Mt. Kilimanjaro, and a locust swarm that's flat out breathtaking.
NB: On the same disc is 'Bear Country', an Oscar winning 30 min short.
