Mighty Joe Young

This is the trailer to the 1998 Disney Movie "Mighty Joe Young". 

The movie is about a "legendary" 15-ft gorilla who was raised by a young girl named Jill after both their mothers are killed by a poachers (Jill's mother was trying to protect the gorillas).  After they have grown up, a wildlife refuge director convinces Jill that Joe would be safer in the US, so they move to a wildlife refuge in Hollywood.  Here, one of the poachers who attacked them when they were younger finds out they're in the US and seeks revenge on Joe for taking his thumb in the attack all those years ago.

  1. I feel that this movie does show the reality of the connections and bounds between humans and animals. Animals can get attached to someone who they have known since they were born, and this can also help tame an animal. Yes, an animal will never lose their senses and can act out of fear and attack if they feel they are in danger, but it is possible to have a relationship with an animal that is not domesticated.
