Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this film -- which includes magnificent close-ups of animals in their natural habitat -- also shows the kind of vicious brutality that it takes for animals to survive. Animal carcasses, chases, and killing are frequently on screen. The main human character deals with parental separation, loneliness, hunger, and death -- issues that will be difficult for younger kids to handle. But by investing so much time in these lions, the film achieves its purpose of educating viewers about the single biggest problem they face: human encroachment.

Sexual Content

Not applicable

Violence

Animal carcasses are often shown, sometimes with other animals feeding on them. In one scene, there's a close up on two lions eating an impala, with blood showing on their faces. The main character loses his brother to a snake, and later, his best friend is shot by a hunter after being caught in a trap. There are scenes of peril and suspense, including a forest fire. Animals fight. Hunters search for the white lion; there are guns and shooting.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

This film teaches kids about respect for the sacredness of life and value of animals. The risk to lions in the wild due to human encroachment is also clear. Persistence and acceptance are other themes.
