The Lion Queen

From the trailer for The National Geographic’s “The Last Lions,” a film about a lioness in Botswana’s Okavanga Delta, that is nominated for the best documentary at The Academy Awards this year:

Africa. Here the ancient dramas of nature play themselve out … It’s the eternal dance of Africa.

And to top it off, the film is narrated by Jeremy Irons, Scar in “The Lion King.” I won’t mention the rousing chorus. Get me out of here.
