The girls and I are so excited to see this movie, African Cats! We’re big time animal lovers and myself especially when it comes to African animals. We saw the preview for this movie and all of us got so excited to see it….
Earth Day is April 22nd and this is the day African Cats will appear in theaters. African Cats is the third release under the DisneyNature label after Oceans last year and Earth in 2009.
Leaping into theaters on Earth Day, 2011, “African Cats” features the real-life love, humor and determination of the kings of the African savanna: Mara, an endearing lion cub who strives to grow up with her mother’s strength, spirit and wisdom; Sita, a fearless cheetah and single mother of five mischievous newborns; and Fang, a proud leader of the pride who must defend his family from a rival lion.
During the film’s opening week (April 22-28), a portion of the proceeds from that week’s
ticket sales will be donated to the African Wildlife Foundation through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund to protect the Amboseli Wildlife Corridor, a passage between the Amboseli, Tsavo West and Chyulu Hills National Parks that is frequently used by lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, giraffes and a host of other animals in the African savanna.
There’s also some great material you can download that includes a fun Activity Sheet, an Educational Activity Guide, and a 135-page expanded educator’s guide which is perfect for classrooms or homeschooling!
