The Movie

Babar: The Movie is a 1989 drawn-animated film made by Canada's Nelvana Limited and France's Ellipse Programme, and distributed by New Line Cinema. It is based on the characters of Jean de Brunhoff's eponymous children's books, and was a follow-up to the first season of the HBO TV series. This is one of New Line Cinema's only two animated feature films; the next being 1994's The Swan Princess.

King of the Elephants

Babar: King of the Elephants is a 1998 animated film made by Nelvana Limited and released in theaters in Canada by Alliance Communications and in the U.S. straight to video by HBO Home Video. Based on Jean de Brunhoff's book series, it is the second Babar movie, following 1989's Babar: The Movie, and is also a remake of the 1989–1991 HBO television series. Because it follows the books closer than the series did, it contradicts it on several points. This is the very last film by Alliance Communications.
