Movie Info

This sequel to 1989's Babar: The Movie tells more animated tales in the life of the famous elephant from the popular children's books of Jean deBrunhoff and Laurent deBrunhoff. Babar is a young elephant living happily in the jungle until his mother is murdered by hunters. Distraught, Babar wanders aimlessly until he finds himself in the city, where his unfamiliarity with human lifestyles causes no small number of problems. But an older woman who's grown fond of Babar offers to show him the ropes, helping him learn to live among people until his friends arrive to take him back home. This production from Canada's Nelvana cartoon studio is highlighted by excellent animation and a fine musical score. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

The composition and imagery are workmanlike at best, but the score is jaunty and witty and the middle section is breezy fun

Delightful story, with one scary moment for younger kids.

Audience Reviews for Babar - King Of The Elephants

This was pretty cute, but I was kind of disgusted at how those elephants were so easily brainwashed. I mean, they basically conformed to a human-like society!! Eww!! And baby Babar and Little Bear had the same voice, that was real creepy shit right there.
