Circus Animals

Logline: When unscrupulous carnival workers kidnap a lioness, and her cub, a group of resourceful circus animals set out on a perilous adventure to save the missing felines, encountering a series of obstacles and making unexpected allies along the way.

Synopsis: In a circus, animals are used for entertainment and monetary benefits for their owners. Yet, like any business, the circus isn’t exempt from mistreatment and injustice. Where humans lack empathy and use each other unjustly, “Circus Animals” creates an animated world in which animals have their own voice and must save each other from their human owners’ faults. The screenplay kicks off, presenting one old dog leading a new one into the circus. The new dog quickly accepts her environment and meets other animals with their own unique personality. Indeed, all the circus animals seem to be living in harmony, happy to entertain people until humans go wrong. A cunning mistreatment of the circus carneys causes them to kidnap the circus’ lioness along with her cub. This situation unites all the animals together to seek and free their fellow animals.
