Le Roi lion by Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff (In French, 1994, 1h28)
Simba, a bold young prince, flees the kingdom upon the death of his father Mufasa, wracked by guilt... Wonderful landscapes of Africa, hit songs, adventure and emotion, pure happiness.

Disney and France

Of Norman origin (his name comes from “d’Isigny” sur Mer), Walt Disney often visited France, inspired by its literary heritage. His first cartoons were based on fables by Jean de La Fontaine (The Hare and the Tortoise, The Ant and the Grasshopper...), while great classics were based on fairy tales penned by Charles Perrault (Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty). Likewise, his real-life films were based on the collection, “Voyages extraordinaires” by Jules Verne (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The Children of Captain Grant). Still today, France continues to inspire the Disney and Pixar animation studios with beloved time-honored classics like AristoCats, Beauty and the Beast or The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and, in more recent years, Ratatouille or Cars 2 (action scenes in France). To celebrate this beautiful love story, on March 23, 2018, Disney will put out a commemorative boxed set containing four great animated films where the action takes place in France (The Aristocats, Beauty and the Beast, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Ratatouille). Four masterpieces you can (re)discover on the big screen exclusively at the Lumière festival!

The AristoCats by Wolfgang Reitherman (In French, 1970, 1h18)

Plus, don’t miss the burlesque films of Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd, to discover with the whole family (and in cine-concerts). Thousands of schoolchildren participate in Lumière every year, and a High School Prize is awarded at the end of the festival.
