Wednesday 10th August 2016, Animal Planet US 9/8c World Lion Day premiere

Lions and elephants usually leave each other alone, but against the harsh and unpredictable backdrop of the Kalahari these mightiest of African beasts collide not once, but twice. In a riveting, real-life drama that plays out over eighteen months, a handful of young and inexperienced lions struggle to secure a kingdom. When a devastating drought leaves the normally powerful elephants weak and vulnerable, the big cats have a unique opportunity to further their cause. Yet their clash with the elephants is just the taster for an even greater battle ahead – a battle that will test the pride to its limit.

An Icon Films and NHFUB production.
