***UPDATE!*** (It's been due for one for a while now!)
Yes, this is the original video. :)
This footage is from the documentary Christian The Lion, showing the progress of Christian's rehabilitation from London into to the wild by George Adamson; and of the pride that Mr.Adamson had formed around him. And by all means, the story is not over, as long as there are people around to tell it! To find out more, visit The Born Free Foundation's website: http://www.bornfree.org.uk/ and http://www.bornfree.org.uk/campaigns/... If you would like to buy the documentary (or even just donate- all the proceeds go towards animal preservation), you can get it here: http://www.bornfree.org.uk/shop/acata... The Born Free Foundation is an international wildlife charity working throughout the world to stop individual wild animal suffering and protect threatened species in the wild. I first heard of this, and got this footage from: http://www.kimbawlion.com/christian.htm Yes, I am the first person to post this on YouTube. And yes, Ace Bourke and John Rendall are awesome. Hats off to George Adamson, may he rest in peace.
In celebration of the new documentary that aired April 5th, 2009, Animal Planet has also made a website telling Christian's story, complete with all sorts of neat stuff, so you can check it out here: http://animal.discovery.com/tv/christ...
So these two people raised this lion cub who they named Christian, and sadly he got too big for them to take care of so they decided to release him to live as a wild lion. Well, in this footage, a year has passed and it looks like Christian's adapted to living with a pride of lions when his old friends come back to visit him. Watch closely and you can see the look of pure disbelief that dawns on his muzzle- it's awesome. ^_^ Next thing you know, we have a heart warming reunion. Not long after, members of Christian's pride approach and even they seem to accept Christian's human friends.
Again, THIS IS NOT MINE! This footage from Christian's documentary was also kleptoed from www.kimbawlion.com- a FANTASTIC website about Kimba the White Lion. ^_^ So send all Kudos where it belongs!
I'm uploading these to give people who're oblivious to Kimba an idea as to what the heart of the series really is about. ^.^
