Children's book authors Jean and Laurent de Brunhoff's most beloved elephant comes to the big screen in this animated family tale. Elephant monarch King Babar tells the tale, that unfolds via flashback, of how a much-younger Barbar and his girlfriend Celeste save her village from the pugnacious rhinoceroses that have come to raid it. Though primarily aimed at younger audiences, parents should note that some scenes of abandoned babies maybe upsetting for little viewers.

As a fan of Babar, I love this movie. I actually haven't seen it in a really long time, but when I was little, it was my favorite movie. Even today, even being 15 years old, I sometimes get the songs stuck in my head!
