The Lion King:
The Lion King Mufasa (James Earl Jones) just had a baby cub named Simba. All of the animals come to the ceremony, except for Mufasa’s brother Scar (Jeremy Irons). Scar desperately wants to be King, but can’t. As long as Mufasa and Simba are there. Soon Simba is able to walk and talk and is voiced by Jonathon Taylor Thomas. After hearing about an elephant graveyard from Scar, he and his friend Nala (Niketa Calame) visit it. They meet three bumbling hyenas: Banzai (Cheech Marin), Shenzi (Whoopi Goldberg), and Ed (Jim Cummings), but they manage to leave unhurt. Scar is upset that the hyenas didn’t do the job, so he orders a stampede to wipe out both of them, but it only takes care of Mufasa. Scar convinces Simba that he killed Mufasa, not Scar. So Simba flees into exile.
Disney’s The Lion King out on beautiful Disney Blu-ray,3D starting October 4th. My family could not be more excited! We’ve had a love for this movie that crosses over generations. The original Lion King was released in 1994 and became an instant hit with daughter, 7 years old at the time. It also became and still remains my all time favorite Disney animated film. A feeling that was also passed on to our second daughter, born in 1999. The Lion King, definitely continues to rule in our house hold. So, when we planned our most recent family movie night, I was thrilled to surprise them with a Disney Diamond Edition of The Lion King.
The Lion King is a fantastic film. Filled with fun, well written characters that bring a great message and real life lessons, like responsibility and honor. This film has it all, beautiful animation, humor, emotional moments, family drama, and let’s not forget great songs! Seeing it on new Disney Blu-ray seemed to almost bring new life into a much loved family classic. One we are happy to add to our family library.
