Kimba the white lion was born on an ocean liner that crashed on the shores of a bustling city, where he spent his childhood learning the language and customs of humans. But something was missing. In search of his family, home, and a place to truly belong, Kimba traveled back to Africa and began his journey to become the King of the Jungle. Kimba's adventure centers around finding peace between the animals and humans who live in his African home, often competing for space and resources. As he grows, Kimba must survive both the area's harsh environment, dangers from other animals, and humans who hunt lions like him for sport. Only communication and mutual understanding can end the fighting, and Kimba's knowledge of human culture may be just what the jungle needed.
