Production on this film began in 1989, the same time that Disney began work on The Lion King
(1994). When this film was released 3 years later, Disney sent the film studio a cease and desist letter, claiming that this film infringed on their copyright, even though this film is actually based on Kimba the White Lion
(1965), which preceded Disney's film by several decades. See more
Leo, it's been so long.
Earth Mother, is there a problem on the mountain?
I'm afraid so. There's less and less food growing on Mount Moon these days. There's very little left to eat. I came to take some food back. It warms my heart to see all of you doing so well. I know it's hard work protecting the jungle all by yourself, but you need to believe in yourself to lead them. Their all in your care, Leo.
Spun-off from Kimba the White Lion
