| TLK is Great
I watched the film today and I have come to the conclusion that this Disney film is one classic that will keep on delivering to Disney fans like myself...TLK is a wonderful film with great characters and songs with a powerful message that you can always find your way back no matter how hard the journey...

I think The Lion King is one of the best Disney animated films matching with the power of Bambi and Brother Bear.

I love how Disney Works hard to deliver the best in Animation,Song,And Magic

I do believe that 2006 and many years from now The Lion King will Shine and still Roar with Success...

Thank-You Disney For The Lion King

Trivia

The German dubbing voices of little Simba (singing voice) and Nala would later go on to dub Bilbo Baggins and Eowyn in the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings respectively. They're called Manuel Straube and Alexandra Wilcke.


Quotes

Scar: Life's not fair, is it? You see, I... well, I shall never be king. And you... shall never see the light of another day. Hmm-hmm-hmm, adieu.
Zazu: Didn't your mother ever tell you not to play with your food?


Goofs

When Simba approaches Mufasa's dead body, the camera shows Mufasa from the back and his paw is clearly past his nose. But when are then shown him face on, his paw has moved to the same level as his nose.


Crazy Credits

There are no opening credits.


Alternate Versions

When the movie was released on DVD in October 2003, it offered two versions of the film: The "Special Edition" (the 2002 IMAX re-release), and the "Original Theatrical Release". The "Original Theatrical Release" is actually identical to the 2002 IMAX/"Special Edition" re-release, except that it opens with the memorial card to Frank Wells, following the Walt Disney Pictures logo. The Original Theatrical Release on the 2003 Platinum Edition DVD release omits the blue Walt Disney Pictures opening and closing logos and it uses the same opening and closing logos as the 2002 IMAX/Special Edition re-release. This includes the pouncing lesson scene. The Original Theatrical Release on the 2003 Platinum Edition DVD release omits the original scrolling end credits sequence and it uses an edited version of the same end credits from the 2002 IMAX/Special Edition re-release purporting to be the end credits from the Original Theatrical Release. All of the other edits that were made to the 2002 IMAX re-release (the cleaned-up animation, etc.) are also present in this version.
