Save the Savanna

Once again DisneyNature is offering viewers a stunning epic look at life on our planet with an awe-inspiring adventure blending family bonds with the power and cunning of the wild. Out to celebrate Earth Day, April 22, 2011, this true story is set against the backdrop of one of the wildest places on Earth, the African Savanna.

African Cats” captures the real-life love, humor and determination of the majestic kings of the savanna. Narrated by the indomitable voice of Oscar®-nominated actor Samuel L. Jackson, the story features 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 and his sons.

As with it's previous two Earth Day releases DisneyNature "African Cats" offers movie goers the opportunity to really make their tickets count. It's not just about entertainment, it's about giving back to our planet and it's wild inhabitants. 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 ensure the future of lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, giraffes and a host of other animals in the vibrant African savanna.

Would you like to do a greater good? Launching during the week of April 18th, Disney Tickets Together, is Facebook's first social ticketing application, which allows fans to engage with the film by inviting friends to see "African Cats" and purchase tickets for local theaters without ever leaving Facebook. For all "African Cats" events created in Tickets Together, Disney will increase the donation to the Save the Savanna fund for every "Yes" RSVP that the events receive.
