Official Disneynature's African Cats thread (updated 6/15 post #46)

This thread will have the official information from Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures regarding DisneyNature's African Cats.

This is Disney's latest true-life adventure film, rated G, to be released on Earth Day - April 22, 2011. The film will be narrated by actor Samuel L. Jackson.

Description from Disney:
Quote:
An epic true story set against the backdrop of one of the wildest places on Earth, “African Cats” captures the real-life love, humor and determination of the majestic kings of the savanna. Narrated by 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. DisneyNature brings “The Lion King” to life on the big screen in this True Life Adventure directed by Keith Scholey and Alastair Fothergill (“Earth”). An awe-inspiring adventure blending family bonds with the power and cunning of the wild, “African Cats” leaps into theatres on Earth Day, April 22, 2011.

See "African Cats," Save the Savanna

DisneyNature announces collaboration with the African Wildlife Foundation to help save the savanna during “African Cats’” opening week April 22-28, 2011

Quote:
DisneyNature announced plans to collaborate with the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) on a program to celebrate the release of the new DisneyNature feature film “African Cats.” the program, “see ‘African Cats,’ save the savanna” was revealed in Nairobi, Kenya, during AWF’s 50th anniversary celebration. 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 organization 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. the AWF will be working to protect the Amboseli wildlife corridor, a passage between the Amboseli, Tsavo West and Chyulu National Parks, that is frequently used by a variety of wildlife.

“with its honest portrayal of life on the African savanna, ‘African Cats’ reveals the brilliance of the animals who live there,” said Alan Bergman, President, the Walt Disney Studios. “we are committed to helping the African Wildlife Foundation establish this protective corridor, building upon previous enormously successful conservation efforts from the DisneyNature label.”

“the African Wildlife Foundation is proud to work so closely with DisneyNature on the release of ‘African Cats,’” said Patrick Bergin, CEO, African Wildlife Foundation. “We are celebrating 50 years of working with the people of Africa to ensure the wildlife and these wild lands endure forever; extending the Amboseli Wildlife Corridor will be a great step forward in these efforts.”

The film, which will be released in theaters worldwide, opens in North America on April 22, 2011. Tickets for groups of 20 or more are already available in the United States by calling 1-888-disney6.

Jordin Sparks sings theme song for African Cats

Jordin Sparks revealed her new song "The World I Knew" is the theme for DisneyNature's African Cats.

From Walt Disney Studios:

Quote:
For the end credit song, filmmakers called on “American Idol” winner and platinum-selling recording artist Jordin Sparks to sing “The World I Knew,” which was written by hit songwriter/artist Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic). Walt Disney Records is doing its part to help Save the Savanna, donating 20 percent of net proceeds received from the sale of the Jordin Sparks single to the African Wildlife Foundation for each single sold between April 12, 2011, and April 12, 2012, with a maximum of $50,000 to be contributed to AWF.
You can watch the video for the song in the link below.
