The idea of Mia and the White Lion came to Gilles de Maistre while he was making a television documentary on the unique friendship between children and wild animals around the world. In South Africa, he meets a boy whose parents had a lion farm. Under the guise of preserving them, they actually resold them for hunting in pens.
For now, he's a cub, and you want to have fun with it. Soon, he'll just want to kill you. Go past this fence, and any one of these lions will tear you to pieces in five seconds flat. It doesn't matter if you've fed them, or bathed them or cuddled ...
Several times during the movie, there is a close-up of the white lion who seems to be purring. Lions do not purr. They can roar, which smaller cats cannot. The largest cat that can both "meow" and purr is the cougar, or panther. Lions cannot purr.
