Some years later Babar returns to the jungle where he manages to make peace between the rhinozerusses and the elephants. For his wisdom Babar is elected as the king of the elephants and soon his dreams comes true: A town where all the elephants live together without any violence, where family and friendships are the most important values in life.

The film appears a little old-fashioned - in the best meaning of the word! The story is simple, the animation does not need any special effects to impress. Best entertainment especially for the youngest ones between 4 and seven years old. 52.000 admissions in Germany.
