Lions are the stars of this groundbreaking, live action family film set against the spectacular natural stage of East Africa. It combines footage of real lions with cutting-edge animation techniques that allow the lions to talk. A dramatic script brings the adventures of young lioness Suki and her brother, Linus, vividly to life. This is an emotional drama set in the lion’s world and based on real lion behaviour. Filmed in High Definition and using bouldercam technology as pioneered in Lions - Spy in the Den, the film features wild lions in the Serengeti, where the story is set, as well as habituated lions.
Cast: Kate Winslet (Suki), Helen Mirren (Macheeba), Rupert Graves (Linus), Sean Bean (Dark), Martin Freeman (Fleck), Robbie Coltrane (James), Jim Broadbent (Eddie), John Hurt (Harry), Kwame Kwei-Armah (Lush)
