STARRING Samuel L. Jackson
DIRECTED BY Alastair Fothergill, Keith Scholey

Disneynature follows 2007’s Earth and 2010’s Oceans with another frankly-named flick about natural wonders: African Cats. The movie, which is narrated by Samuel L. Jackson — maybe Morgan Freeman was busy? — follows three wild felines as they live and learn on the savannah. Don’t expect to see a live-action version of The Lion King, though — here, instead of befriending warthogs and meerkats, the big cats eat them. Happy Earth Day!
