Mia and The White Lion Movie
I’m a fan of both animal movies and coming of age movies, so I loved Mia and The White Lion. It was fantastic!
Some of you may have been on an African safari, but I’m fairly certain that none of us have lived at an animal sanctuary in South Africa.
Yet, it is easy to get fully involved in this story while watching the movie.
Mia experiences growing pains, that are common to the human experience. The rest of the story is unique, but relatable.
Of course, the white lion is a beautiful animal and the scenery is gorgeous.
The film reminded me of nature films I watched, when I was younger. But the filming techniques and story are modern.
Like those older movies, it will spark interesting conversations about the way we treat animals.
It is rated PG and has some tense scenes and themes. Personally, I’d recommend it for older kids and adults.
