The first 2 minutes of this film are taken from the Jungle Emperor Leo (1965) TV series, while the rest is all original. Tezuka was very pleased that this film conveyed his story accurately, something he wasn't able to do with the TV series.

Overall I was surprised to be enjoyed as much as I was with this ancient movie. The visuals and audio were quite behind the times, but the amazing story by Tezuka helps pull it through to be an overall enjoyable experience. I contemplated writing a full English review, but since I cannot find any subtitled, much less dubbed, releases of this movie I didn't think it was necessary. Further, I do not really recommend watching this movie as it cuts out some of my favorite portions of the manga, and also loses much of the unique, expressive and detailed Tezuka artstyle that made it famous read more

From my understanding the series run was 1965 and the film was 1997. I could not find a '66 film so I am assuming this was listed in year 1966 because of the intro clip possibly from the '65 run. On to the review.

Initially feels like a Lion King copy but once the story starts you realize it is a completely different story with human interaction and not one of betrayal. It shows multiple aspects of human and animal nature. The characters are varied and there is no main character. The ending was not satisfying to me but such is life. The movie demonstrates happiness, read more
