Did You Know?


After Fleck's mother is killed, he is referred to throughout the film as an orphan. In fact, one of the adult males in the pride would have been his father. He, Linus and the other young males would also have left the pride at sexual maturity, not stuck around and tried to mate with the lionesses (as Fleck tries to do with Suki), who would be their relatives.

Macheeba: We're like the stars.
Linus: What, we only come out at night?
Suki: We're pretty but don't do anything?
Fleck: No, you are so dim. No, everyone points at us.
Macheeba: No, Fleck! On our own, we sparkle, but together we really shine.

User Reviews

The DVD 'making of' extra is even better than the movie!
7 October 2004 | by TxMikeSee all my reviews

'Pride' is a small, innocuous movie that tells a story much like animated 'The Lion King', but using real lions and computer animation of animal faces to make it appear that they really are talking. We see lots of shots of lion cubs romping and running through the grass, and exquisite close-ups of mature lions eating or reposing, and many times staring just a few inches away from the lens of the camera. How did they do this? The DVD extras tell a very interesting story, a story I found more interesting than the one told in the movie. However, I suspect that most children will really enjoy a movie where the animals appear to be really speaking.

STOP reading if you want to discover it fresh for yourself, but the following comments only address how the movie was filmed, NOT the actual story. Lions from two sources were used. First, tame lions in a preserve were filmed for many stock shots of running, jumping, crossing water on a fallen tree, things like that. Enticed with large pieces of meat at the end of a pole, the lions were very cooperative.

More inventive was the use of a 'boulder cam', a radio-controlled camera inside an enclosure shaped like a boulder, but on wheels. Controlled from a nearby truck, it could, and did, follow the lions into hunting and feeding sessions, into the midst of their den, even climbing large rock formations, for a total of 300 days. After initial curiosity, the lions accepted this 'boulder on wheels' as a part of their environment.

The extras also showed how computer techniques were used to make the lions change expressions and appear to speak.
