Before Princess and the Frog, The Lion King was my personal favorite Disney film. Although the phenomenal music of Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid is undisputed, the story of Simba leaving home to find himself and returning with the support of old and new friends is a classic tale. Having seen both the Broadway and off-Broadway Lion King Musicals and being a fan of both, I was excited to learn it would be returning to the big screen in Disney Digital 3D. Now also available in Blu-ray high def and Blu-ray 3D as a part of Disney’s Diamond Collection, Lion King fans have a whole new medium to view their favorite characters like Pumba and Timon and songs such as “Circle of Life.”
Spectacular graphics and fun extras make this a worthwhile purchase for your family or as a gift…the holidays are coming! We especially loved the bloopers (which makes me wonder if the voices make mistakes that are then drawn…how does that work?) There’s also an entire gallery of drawings, storyboards and enough behind the scenes footage to make any Lion King fan happy. Learn about Disney Digital copies which are fantastic to get your movies on the go…iPhone, iPad, the works…as well as Second Screen which turns the movie into an interactive iPad adventure.
