Earth Day is almost here. What better way to spend it then the opening of Disney’s new movie African Cats. In fact, a portion of the proceeds from the first week of viewing will go to the African Wildlife Fund.
The movie is being narrated by Samuel L Jackson and is live action. The movie follows Mara, a lion cub who wants to grow up to be strong and wise like her mother. We also follow Sita, a cheetah who happens to be a single mother of five. Finally, we will also follow Fang who must defend his pride against a rival.
In anticipation of the upcoming movie, there are a host of things that you can do to help raise awareness for their See African Cats, Save the Savannah program.
