Allusions to Shakespeare’s King Lear are not coincidental.
There’s been a bungle in the jungle! King Leo is getting old; his sight is not as good as it was and his stamina is declining. He makes the decision to take a sabbatical from his rainforest responsibilities. What he needs is a place in the sun to rejuvenate and revitalise. He divides his kingdom between Panther, honourable but a bit too upfront with the truth, and Tiger, a rampant rascal who is out to make a fast buck. Tiger reveals a penchant for property development by cutting down the forest and selling to the highest bidder. Naturally, the animals are wild with worry.
Will Tiger make the take-over total or will Panther save the day, the forest and the planet ..?
