Disney's African Cats arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.78:1 encode. One of the co-director, Alastair Fothergill, was also famous for his skills in the BBC Nature series. This beautiful transfer captures every strand of hair, blade of high grass and distant wildebeest in a thousand-strong herd with spectacular clarity. Colours may not be as vibrant as those in the BBC series, but they are warm and natural. What makes this set special is Disney's magic to spin an intriguing tale of two families of lions and cheetah and their cubs, by putting together scenes of these "lovable" animals in their natural habitat. Names are given to individual animals, like Zita, Mara and Fang (the male lion with a broken tooth...humour) so that we are drawn into their circles. Story-telling is first class...typical Disney style.
You also have a choice to have the directors to explain certain scenes in more details, but I find the picture-in-picture quite distracting. Maybe with second viewing, in order to appreciate the filming better. But overall, the video is excellent. (4.5/5)
The DTS-HD 5.1 MA audio is also very well mastered, with nice music and all the noises from various animals and the lion's roar give my two subwoofers a great work-out. In the end credit, Jordan Sparks also sang a beautiful song. But the real star here surprisingly goes to the narrator, Samuel L. Jackson. David Attenborough is always my only choice in nature's narration, but here Samuel L. Jackson tells a very interesting and lively tale that keeps you interested and smiling. His voice just fits the story telling without intruding into the story itself. Great job. (4.5/5)
