Trivia

The idea of Mia and the White Lion came to Gilles de Maistre while he was making a television documentary on the unique friendship between children and wild animals around the world. In South Africa, he meets a boy whose parents had a lion farm. Under the guise of preserving them, they actually resold them for hunting in pens. See more »

A Must Watch, Mainly for Animal Lovers
21 January 2019 | by anablue-28948See all my reviews

It's such a pity this film isn't more popular! The pace of the narrative is great. It is engaging from the first minute. It's also evident to see how long they've taken to film it, as the boys grow along with the lion - about three years. While it focuses on the relationship between Mia and this wonderful lion, it also deals with family ties, connection with nature and the hard way in which these animal farms have to survive. Super recommended!
