The Lion King is the best animated movie ever made. It's definately NOT just a children's story; it's an emotional journey for all ages, from the youngest of cubs to the oldest of warthogs. From the moment you hear the enchanting "Nants ingonyama baghiti baba" you are no doubt transported into the lion's world. I myself am STILL left breathless after watching the movie (which I have seen about a million times). The animation itself is the most sophisticated, beautiful, and inspiring of all of Disney's films. All in all, whether you like to laugh with Timon and Pumbaa or cry with Simba and Mufasa under the stars, you'll definately never be the same person after watching this film.

I myself did not find it all that bad. The animation is rather shabby when compared to the original, and nowhere near as clean. But I do have to admit that the storyline was halfway decent. I think that Disney just tried too hard to make it as good as (or better than) the original. My favorite song has to be He Lives in You, and the score was even ok. Zira was the best character in the whole movie, but a little too much like Scar. There were a lot of plot holes that most certainly should have been filled. Disney could have done a lot better on it, maybe hired the original animators or something? Overall, as a true TLK fan I'd certainly add it to my collection. It doesn't merit the title "Worthy Sucessor" but it'll do.

I've been following the production of this movie since I first heard about it in either '99 or 2000. At first it didn't look all that great to me, I thought "Oh GOD, a Timon & Pumbaa show MOVIE?" Yet, I've always been one to give something a chance before I dismiss it (well, almost always) so I said "Alright, we'll give it a go." Hence started my search for more info on this movie. Four years after my search began, I'm finally ready to give my opinion on it.
Now that I've seen some trailers and clips, it doesn't seem so bad. The animation is just a shade under the quality of the original movie, and is MUCH better than The Lion King 2. The storyline, which wasn't too appealing when I first heard it, is actually starting to make sense. It looks as if Disney really cares about this movie. Heck, it looks as if Disney's trying to make up for TLK2! It also looks as if it's not gonna be TOO reminiscent of the Timon and Pumbaa show, but I'm reserving judgement on that portion of it for until I actually see the movie. Overall, it looks like it's gonna be worth the money spent on it. I'm reserving most judgement for now, however. When I see it, I'll post another review with my updated opinion. But just to let you know, despite my hatred of most sequels, it seems as if finally we're getting what we as TLK fans really deserve.
