Review: Disneynature’s ‘Tiger’ Film

Narrated by Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Disneynature’sTiger” lifts the veil on our planet’s most revered and charismatic animal, inviting viewers to journey alongside Ambar, a young tigress raising her cubs in the fabled forests of India. Curious, rambunctious and at times a bit clumsy, the cubs have a lot to learn from their savvy mother who will do all she can to keep them safe from pythons, bears and marauding male tigers.

Directed by Mark Linfield, co-directed by Vanessa Berlowitz and Rob Sullivan, and produced by Linfield, Berlowitz and Roy Conli, “Tiger” is the groundbreaking culmination of 1,500 days of filming.

Combining fast-paced action with remarkably intimate moments, Disneynature’s all-new original feature film streams on Disney+ beginning on Earth Day, April 22, 2024.

“Tiger” Review

“Tiger” transports us to the forests of India which inhabits 70% of the world’s tiger population.  The 90 minute documentary follows Ambar, a mother tiger and her four cubs: Ivy, Ravi, Charm and Golu who are trying to earn their stripes against a forest that is united against them…and their stripes are as unique as bar codes.

With beautiful cinematography, stunning visuals and tight shots, the film captures nature’s beauty and intense heart-pounding moments in between.

We first meet the adorable cubs at two weeks old and follow them into adulthood learning each cub’s distinct character and personality traits. Through bonding moments between the mother and her kids, the playful antics between siblings, and the dangers they face, we can’t help but fall in love with these majestic animals.

Wildly entertaining and educational the film depicts a breathtaking look at nature in action and can be enjoyed by all ages.

Bottom Line: “Tiger” is gorgeous, harrowing and even a bit emotional at times, offering a view of the Indian forest through the eyes of a tiger.  One of Disneynature’s finest films and perfect to watch on Disney+ as we celebrate Earth Day.

TIGERS ON THE RISE

Also streaming on Disney+ this Earth Day is a companion film to “Tiger”—“Tigers on the Rise.” Narrated by Blair Underwood, the film celebrates the remarkable comeback of one of the world’s most iconic animals. Tiger populations have rebounded so successfully, many of the big cats are venturing from India’s forest reserves into farms and villages—a monumental challenge for both people and animals. The heroes in this story are the vets, scientists and community patrols dedicated to ensuring that tigers and people can coexist.

Disneynature’s “Tigers on the Rise” is directed by Rob Sullivan, co-directed by Alistair Tones, and produced by Sullivan, Vanessa Berlowitz, Mark Linfield and Roy Conli.
