Ok so after searching what to me felt like the entire internet I’ve come here.
I’m looking for a cartoon/animated movie from the 70-90 (sry i know that’s 30 years).
It is in colour and has a “western” feel to it, as opposed to asian.
Plotwise it’s about a tribe of apes/monkies living in the jungle in some “village” made in the trees.
The movie starts out with one of the monkies killing the “leader” to take control of the tribe. The protagonist in the story is a young monkey/ape (possibly the son of the one who got killed) who will end up exposing that the ape killed the leader.
The place where the leader of the tribe lives is kinda inside a cave or tunnel in a tree (I’m not sure).
The scene where the leader is killed is, if I remember correctly, the first scene. I think you see the red evening sky over a black jungle and then pan down.
Then you see the scene where this ape kills the other (maybe with a rock?) near a hollow tree lying on the ground.
some of this might be wrong if I don’t remember it correctly.
-The Jungle Book.
-Planet of the Apes.
Please help figure this out, I’ve been searching for this one for waay too long now.
