Disney's epic coming-of-age saga tells of the love between a proud lion ruler, Mufasa and his son Simba - a naive and curious cub who "just can't wait to be king." But Simba's envious Uncle Scar has other plans, and his scheming for the throne leads to Simba's exile from the kingdom he should rightfully rule. Befriended by the hilarious warthog, Pumbaa and his manic meerkat companion, Timon, Simba forgets his regal responsibilities and adopts a carefree lifestyle of "Hakuna Matata."

As a Disney collector and a massive fan of all things Disney i find it very hard to say which one of Disney's classics is my all time favourite. But in The Lion King you have a legend of a film the music is amazing, The characters superb, The voice actors make the characters even more fantastic and the story is brilliant.
Elton John and Tim Rice did a fantastic job as every single song is this classic film are brilliant and The Circle Of Life still sends a shiver down my spine when i watch this film.
This is my wifes favourite and is fast becoming my little girls favourite film she is 4 and she cant get enough of it.
Walt Disney raised the bar for animated films with this film and i doubt they will ever make another film that as the same feeling as this film.
Long since deleted on DVD now this film is well worth breaking the bank to get hold off or maybe wait until the end of the year to see if it is up for a re-release from the Disney vault.

Along with Beauty & the Beast, The Lion King is one of my favourite of Disney's traditionally animated movies.

The early 90s really were the modern golden era for the Mouse Kingdom and LK boasts a great story with lovable characters and excellent humour courtesy of Timon & Pumba.

Exceptional animation with a wonderfully rich African colour palette. Bright, vivid musical numbers and also, for me personally, one of the most emotional moments in an animated movie.

A classic in every sense of the word.
