An unforgettable story, breathtaking animation, beloved characters and award-winning music sets thestage for “The Lion King”, a Disney classic that follows the adventures of Simba, the feisty lion cub who “just can't wait to be king.” But his envious Uncle Scar has plans for his own ascent to the throne, and he forces Simba's exile from the kingdom. Alone and adrift, Simba soon joins the escapades of a hilarious meerkat named Timon and his warmhearted warthog pal, Pumbaa. Adopting their carefree lifestyle of “Hakuna Matata,” Simba ignores his real responsibilities until he realizes his destiny and returns to the Pride Lands to claim his place in the “Circle of Life.” The all-star vocal talents—including Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, Whoopi Goldberg, James Earl Jones, Jeremy Irons, Ernie Sabella, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Robert Guillaume, Cheech Marin and Moira Kelly—rip-roaring comedy and uplifting messages of courage, loyalty and hope make this a timeless tale for all ages. Produced by Don Hahn and directed by Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff from a script by Irene Mecchi, Jonathan Roberts and Linda Woolverton, “The Lion King” is rated G by the MPAA.
How could anyone who has seen this movie forget the famous phrase "Hakuna Matata" . Sometimes certain things really stick with you through out a life time and The Lion King is one of those things. I didn't realize to recently how many Disney Classic my kids have yet to watch. I have to admit this one I was really excited about but wasn't sure if my oldest would appreciate it. He is in those evil boy tween years and I wasn't sure he would be that "into it". To my surprised all of my children were really "into it" and my oldest couldn't help but find himself amused by the lovable antic of Timon. What is funny is he was always one of my favorites as well. However I won't tell him that ;-)
If your looking for a forever classic that the whole family will enjoy it is the Lion King.
