Walt Disney Studios just released this brief clip from Disneynature’s next film, African Cats, titled ‘Fang.’ It focuses on the patriarch of the main lion pride featured in the film, Fang, who was given his name by the filmmakers because of one of his canines being split completely down the middle vertically, causing it to dangle from his mouth.
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. 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 once banished lion. Disneynature brings The Lion King to life on the big screen in this True Life Adventure directed by Keith Scholey and Alastair Fothergill (Earth).
Narrated by actor Samuel L. Jackson, African Cats, will be in theaters nationwide this Earth Day, April 22. A portion of all proceeds from the first week’s sales will go to conservation efforts in the savanna.
