We got Patrick Stewart as narrator in the UK release of this Disney documentary, and as others have noticed, he's no David Attenborough!
Two large cat families are the focus of this film, so it seems fitting to watch this on International Cat Day; although these lions are dangerous and not pussy cat cute (domestic cats, of course, are cold-blooded killers themselves, as many a mouse or bird has discovered).
What I didn't really go for was this story of family loyalty and enemies, which projects human characteristics and emotions on to animals who are unable to share how they feel. Maybe it is a simple matter of survival rather than any love of the cubs which exist to keep the pride going?
This film suffers from a surfeit of naffness, but for the cats alone, I'm going to give this a slightly better score than it deserves.
