The George of the Jungle

This year marks 25 years since the release of “George of the Jungle” (or “George l’Indomptable” in its native language), a film that still resonates with audiences today. Co-directed by Phil Roman and Sam Weisman and starring Brendan Fraser in his breakout role, the movie was a massive success, grossing over $200 million worldwide on an estimated budget of $35 million. In honor of this milestone, here are five things you may not have known about one of Hollywood’s most iconic comedic heroes!

Introduction to The George of the Jungle


When you first hear that Warner Brothers has adapted your beloved childhood cartoon, George of The Jungle, you may be skeptical as to how they can make it work. But going into it with no expectations helps a lot because this movie delivers in being both highly entertaining and uniquely satisfying for anyone who grew up with these characters. George of The Jungle (not to be confused with the live-action version) gives a perfect feeling of what it’s like to have a lighthearted, fun adventure in an animated world. This movie has all the elements that make a good cartoon like this: heartwarming moments and hilarity from the characters, stunning visuals and endless imagination with their surroundings, and an overall playful tone that still knows how to be serious when needed.

Story of The George of the Jungle


If you were a child in the 90s and watched the George of the Jungle movie on TV or at the cinema, then you may remember this quote: “A George is an animal-lover, he loves all life. Even the animals we eat, they are his friends” The purpose of this blog post is to tell you about that quote. It is from the George of the Jungle movie. The movie features a famous cartoon character, an ape named “George”. In the movie, George is in awe of animals and nature.

What is more, scientific research has shown that one commonality with all meat eaters (referring to people who eat meat), is that their bile tastes more bitter. Conversely, vegetarians tend to have sweeter tasting bile. As much as we would like it to be otherwise, intelligent researchers have concluded that animals are friends with those who respect them and don’t kill them.

The Whale, starring Brendan Fraser, will earn him a TIFF Tribute Award


Last night, TIFF presented Brendan Fraser with the Tribute Award for his role in The Whale. The award, which is one of six that are given out at the end of each year to actors and directors who celebrate Canadian cinema, hones in on those who have made significant contributions to film. Fraser’s acting career has spanned nearly thirty years. His most recent films include Gods and Generals, a biopic of Confederate General Robert E. Lee; Journey to the End of the Night, based on Louis-Ferdinand Celine’s semi-autobiographical novel and co-starring Roy Dupuis; and Inkheart, an adaptation of Cornelia Funke’s fantasy novels, which co-starred Paul Bettany.
