Join us for the second screening in our «Journey Through Anime» with the classic tale of Kimba the White Lion in this rarely-seen film version of the popular TV series! Based on the manga (comic) by the legendary artist, Tezuka Osamu, known as the “God of Comics” in Japan.

Caesar, a white lion, is king of the jungle in Africa. He wants to protect all of the animals and bring peace to his kingdom. However, his reign is cut short by a band of hunters and his consort, Snowene, is captured and put aboard a ship to be sold overseas. While aboard, she gives birth to a single white cub, Kimba, the heir of King Caesar.

With his mother’s encouragement Kimba escapes from the ship and returns to Africa to fulfill his father’s dream of peace. Although the arrival of Caesar’s heir brings joy to the animals of the jungle, not everyone shares Kimba’s vision of cooperation and harmony. Now, the young and untested Kimba must prove himself worthy of assuming the title of King of the Jungle!
