Leo, a rare white lion, is not only a proud father and husband, but reigning king of the jungle. His life with Riya, his wife, and two children, Rune and Rukio, is just as it should be until a greedy mercenary and his flunkies visit the jungle in search of the mysterious but precious moonlight stones. Though the animals of the jungle are enraged by their presence, the humans take no notice unless their lives are personally threatened--and in that case, they let their weapons do the talking. To make matters worse, a highly contagious germ is devastating what little jungle the mercenaries haven't destroyed themselves. ~ Tracie Cooper

Wonderful film. A clear joy to watch for any age. I just wish I could find translations for the original Manga. :)
I met someone who thought this was a rip-off of the Lion King, I said 'No, this is 20 or 30 years older, & you're probably thingking of Kimba the White Lion.' Concidering when this was made, the animation quality looks very high-budget. The snow is VERY realistic, the colors are devine, & the movements feel natural. The cubs look SO cute, but the humans look hideous (typical shounen 60s design) If your kid asked you a bunch of annoying questions or cried when Bambi's mother was shot, by the end of this movie, almost EVERYONE dies. This movie has bad stuff like burning trees, shooting endangered species for fun, murder, suicide, & orphaning, so keep this one away from the kids. Aside from all that, the show is pleasent, mellow, & not really that violent at all. (no blood or bodies)
