African Cats Now On Blu-ray Combo Pack & Teaching Materials

Zoe and I went to see African Cats in the theater when it first came out on Earth Day last year. It was an amazing story of two cat families in Africa. As you watch the story unfold you are taken deep into the breathtaking African savanna to witness the heart-stopping rivalry between two lion prides and the epic journey of one brave cheetah family. Shot over the course of two and a half years using state-of-the-art camera equipment, AFRICAN CATS captures the awe-inspiring beauty of one of the wildest places on Earth as it tells the dramatic and often intimate stories of 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 clan.

Some scenes were sad, while others made us giggle. Other scenes were just really good opportunities to teach Zoe about how the cats in Africa live and that animals go through hardships that we don’t think about on a normal basis. Check this out or my full African Cats Movie Review.

In addition to the film, the discs include an incredible array of bonus features that take viewers deeper into the savanna through extensive interactive behind-the-scenes footage including filmmaker and conservationist interviews, an incredibly touching music video featuring Jordin Sparks singing “The World I Knew,” plus a look at the global efforts to which The Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund contributes.

In addition to the film and the disks you can find educational materials on the African Cat’s website. These materials can be used to teach students about the science and geography themes presented in the new Disneynature film AFRICAN CATS. The guide will increase students knowledge of the African savanna habitat and the animals that live there, help students develop an understanding as to how living things are connected and why these connections are important, and enrich students viewing of AFRICAN CATS by inspiring appreciation for the animals and ecosystems of the African savanna.
