Trivia

The close relationship between Timon and Pumbaa is based on fact. In the wild, meerkats often stay close to warthogs to eat the fleas and ticks off their backs, relieving the warthogs of an itchy parasitic nuisance.


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

(at around 17 mins) During the song 'Can't wait to be King' the monkey grooming Zazu is apparently hanging by its tail. Tail hanging monkeys are found only in South America.


Crazy Credits

"In Remembrance of Frank Wells President of The Walt Disney Company from 1984-1994"


Alternate Versions

This film was re-released in IMAX and other large format theaters on December 25, 2002. The following changes were made to the film for this release: -This movie opens with "The Lion King: Special Edition" title card, following the Walt Disney Pictures logo. -The pouncing lesson scene was replaced with an all-new song, "Morning Report", originally from the stage show. -The animation of crocodiles in the "I Just Can't Wait to be King" sequence was completely re-done. -The animation in some of the scenes went back through the clean-up animation department a second time, to correct problems such as wavering lines and missing details, which, while not very noticeable during a traditional 35mm showing of the film, would have been discomforting on a much large IMAX screen. Small details, such as the characters who had faces that were too small to be seen in the original had faces, were also added. -The waterfalls in the "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" sequence were enhanced. -The 2003 Platinum Edition release omits the original end credits sequence and it uses the static end credits from the 2002 IMAX/Special Edition re-release.
