The Lion King with no animals?

In an effort to raise awareness about the plight of Africa’s wildlife, Greenpeace has adapted the introduction of Disney’s “The Lion King” to show an African landscape without any animals.

Greenpeace Netherlands partnered with Studio Smack to show children, and adults, how Africa’s animals are rapidly disappearing from the face of Earth. The video on Studio Smack’s Vimeo page reads: “Hack into Disney’s classic The Lion King where we removed all animals from the movie’s title sequence. Leaving us with the beautiful yet oppressive backgrounds of the African savanna.”
