African Cats: Kingdom of Courage is an upcoming documentary about the lives of three different mothers in the animal kingdom in Africa.
A lioness, a leopard and a cheetah walk into a bar. Wait. All three cats are mothers, and African Cats will showcase their world and the way they each survive, protect their young, and teach them how to survive in the world.
Directors Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey both have a fair amount of experience making documentaries, such as Earth and Deep Blue (not Deep Blue Sea though, which was the most awesome documentary ever). African Cats is being produced by Disney, and while there hasn’t been any indication that the film will be 3D, I would actually want to see this one in the format. When I first got an HD TV, all I did was watch nature shows, even though it mostly squirrels, and those are outside anyways, but it was cooler on TV. The world, for those of you who don’t realize it, is also currently in 3D, so going outside to look at lions (they’re everywhere) would be a waste when you can go pay to do it.
Who’s It For?
Movie Release Date
April 22, 2011.
Who’s In It?
No cast yet. They may have a narrator at some point, but that has either yet to be decided or at least announced.
Lions ‘pride’ themselves on their families. Get it? ‘Pride?’
Cause groups of lions are called prides.
Earth, Deep Blue, Happy Feet.
What’s Good About It?
I don’t mind the idea of a documentary about big cats in Africa. I hope they eat something and all the guts fall out.
What’s Bad About It?
I just want to know who the narrator will be.
Our Clever Prediction
I doubt the film will make all that much money, but it’s a documentary, so they probably don’t have that have high expectations. I see an Oscar nomination in it’s future, mainly because there aren’t that many high profile nature documentaries out there, and this does have Disney behind it. It probably won’t win, but the nomination will help.
