Trivia

This movie was conceived over a decade before it was made when Tippi Hedren worked in Africa on films during the 1960s / 1970s such as Satan's Harvest (1970). She once said of its conception in Africa: "Exploring a game reserve, we came across a pride of lions that was living in an abandoned game warden's house. We thought it was wonderful, and my husband [Noel Marshall] wrote a script around the idea." The ROAR official site states that the idea for this movie "grew from a father and mother's passion for cats." See more »

An interesting look at a man trying to preserve his family and a dream!
9 October 2003 | by (Hollywood, California) – See all my reviews

Roar is an interesting look at how a man must fight to keep his ideals and his family. As a man must decide how to face a world taken over by animals, he must face his worst fears. That of deciding between cats and his family. While his family fights for their lives.
