This competition is now closed. To find out who the winners were, and read about their exciting visit to the London premiere of African Cats, please visit the Competition page


An epic true story set against the backdrop of one of the wildest places on Earth, African Cats captures the real-life love, humour and determination of the majestic kings of the Savannah. 

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 rival lion and his sons.

Disneynature brings The Lion King to life on the big screen in this True Life Adventure directed by Keith Scholey and Alastair Fothergill (Earth). An awe-inspiring adventure blending family bonds with the power and cunning of the wild, African Cats leaps into cinemas on April 27, 2012.
