This movie focuses on the last half of Osamu Tezuka's revered saga of a white lion's quest to become king of the jungle. Leo's newborn cub, Lune, takes an interest to humans after discovering a music box in the wreckage of an airplane. At the same time, a greedy treasure hunter known as Ham Egg is leading an expedition team of rough-looking men on a trek for the fabled Moonlight Stones, which can supposedly save the world from an energy crisis. Two other humans, (who go by the rather wacky names of Dr. Moustache and Lemonade) try to stop Ham Egg's mad destruction of the jungle. Later, a terrible virus sweeps through the jungle, poisoning many of the animals. Dr. Moustache comes to save them with a cure. The film culminates with a treacherous journey up the legendary Mt. Moon in search of the stones....

Writing reviews is not really my thing, but since there are none for this movie, I will give it a shot.

Jungle Emperor Leo is a children's movie, so if you are looking for action, you can just close this tab. The characters and plot are simple, so if you are rather mature, you probably won't be particularly carried away by this movie. If you on the other hand are a little hung-over or tired, and don't feel like watching the next episode of some heavy, disturbing series - this might just fit your needs.

The story was o.k. in my opinion. It started off interesting, read more
