The crew on this movie nicknamed its star Tippi Hedren as the Pearl White of the 1980s. White was the star of the silent adventure movie The Perils of Pauline (1914), a movie that Hedren alluded to whilst publicizing this picture: "Making Roar (1981) was just like The Perils of Pauline (1914), a cliff-hanger every day. Now the cliff-hangers are not the physical kind, but the demanding problems of promotion, distribution and marketing associated with getting a major motion picture into the theaters and into public consciousness."

Funny film about wild animals starred ,written and directed by relatives and friends
A mother ( Tippi Hedren) and his sons (Melanie Griffith..) go to Africa to find again his husband (John Marshall) who is a warden of wild animals as lions, tigers , elephants ...There occur strange and humorous events when some flocks invade a home and go after the family , up and down stairs and from a floor to another.
This is a great family entertainment . It's a familiar film directed by Noel Marshall and starred by his then wife Tippi Hedren, also producer, and their true sons. Since choice was made to use untrained animals and since for the most part they chose to do as they wished, it's only fair they share the writing and directing credits also starring as Robbie, Gary and Togar. Furthermore appear uncredited secondaries as Will Hutchins and Zakes Moakae as two of the members of the committee. Colorful cinematography by the Dutch Jan De Bont, Paul Verhoveen's usual. Enjoyable score by Minogue is performed by National Philharmonic Orchestra and Togar theme by Dominic Frontiere. Plus, touching songs written and sung by Robert Hawk.
At the end the film tells various warnings as : Although some scenes appear to show animals being injured , they were never actually hurt. The lions that appeared to be killed are all back to playing with their friends but the animals that are being slaughtered in Africa are a reality and many species are near extinction. In the eleven years since began filming ¨Roar¨ in most areas of Africa , 90 per cent of the animals have been killed. These are thinking , feeling beings who need your help to survive. Something must be done and there is much you can do , as contribute to one of the many effective wildlife organizations . Show your disgust with anymore who buys or owns furs of ivory. If at all possible , plan a trip to an African country with a good conservation record. The preservation of Africa's precious wildlife heritage is the responsibility of the whole world.
