You may watch below the official trailer of Mia and the White Lion, the upcoming adventure drama movie directed by Gilles de Maistre and starring Melanie Laurent, Daniah De Villiers, Langley Kirkwood, Ryan Mac Lennan, Brandon Auret, and Lillian Dube:
MIA AND THE WHITE LION
Discover an epic friendship beyond your wildest dreams!
“Shot over the course of three years, the film centers on a willful young girl named Mia whose life is turned upside down when her family decides to leave London to manage a lion farm in South Africa. When a beautiful white lion, Charlie, is born, Mia finds happiness once again and develops a special bond with the growing cub. As Charlie grows to full size, Mia uncovers an upsetting secret kept hidden by her father. Distraught that Charlie could be in danger, Mia decides to rescue him. The two friends set out on an incredible journey across the South African savanna in search of a sanctuary where Charlie can live out his life in freedom.
Brought to life by French director, Gilles De Maistre, the expansive production was filmed at the Welgedacht Reserve in South Africa. De Maistre chose to shoot throughout a three-year period so that the film’s young stars Daniah De Villiers and Ryan Mac Lennon could bond and develop real relationships with the lions and other animals that appear in the film. Mélanie Laurent (Inglorious Bastards, Beginners), Langley Kirkwood (‘Banshee’), Brandon Auret (Elysium, District 9) and Lillian Dube also star.
Kevin Richardson, a lion expert also known as the “Lion Whisperer”, oversaw the entire production process and all interactions between the lions and the children ensuring the safety of the animals, cast and crew on set.”
The movie does looks great, but don’t forget: lions are not pets, they’re wild animals!
Anyway, there are also a few film posters:
