You’re surely aware that Disney is preparing to produce a remake of The Lion King. To be more explicit, on July 19th. Everyone knows how lovely and popular the first series was (and I’m confident the remake will be as well), but how about a real-life Mufasa and Simba moment? Well, it turns out that this wildlife photographer got the shot just right. It also recreates a classic Disney cartoon scene.
Sabine Bernert, a Parisian photographer, captured the wonderful scene while filming a documentary in Kenya’s Masai Mara.
The photographs show a stately lion patrolling his domain, while one of his pups (clearly the most playful) sneaks around behind his father and asks for a huge hug.
The poignant moment was recorded by the photographer as she was taking images for a children’s book, according to her. And what a sweet moment she managed to catch.
“Until the final second, the lion claimed he hadn’t spotted the cubs.” Then they began to have a good time. “I adore the juxtaposition between his sheer power and his tenderness, the massive size of his paw very delicately cradling the small youngster,” Sabine told the LADBible. “I was astounded by how softly this massive lion was playing with the kittens.” They appeared to be having a good time and having a good time. It was a beautiful moment of elegance, with the gentle light of the daybreak.”
The Lion King remake is set to premiere in less than a month. So keep an eye out!
