Editorial Reviews

Hilarity reigns in the motion picture comedy-adventure that takes you way back to the beginning before Simba's tale began...now more fabulous than ever. From their uniquely hysterical perspective, Timon and his windy pal Pumbaa-the greatest unsung heroes of the Savanna-reveal where they came from, how they helped Simba save the Serengeti, and what really happened behind the scenes of The Lion King's biggest events. This essential chapter of The Lion King trilogy features your favorite characters voiced by the original cast (Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Ernie Sabella, plus Julie Kavner and Jerry Stiller), and music by Elton John and Tim Rice. You'll feel the love for every outrageously funny moment.

We're all aware that not much can compare to the original Lion King film. The animation, songs, voices...everything just perfection. However, as an ardent fan of the film, and in particular Timon and Pumbaa, this was snapped up as soon it went on sale - and boy, what a nice surprise! A direct to video release that's actually decent!
This film is much of an improvement on the first "sequel". Simba's Pride just didn't hold any of the magic of the original story - and barely held my attention for one showing before being put onto the shelf to get dusty. I was immediately more interested in this film as I thought it's premise held much more entertainment quality. "Yeah, I'd like to see how everything was through Timon and Pumbaa's eyes" I thought, and I wasn't to be disappointed.
We're originally transported back to Timon's younger days to see why he came to team up with Pumbaa. It's dealt with very wittily, yet with enough warmth that you actually do care what happens to all involved. We're shown how Timon and Pumbaa meet, and how they embark on their quest for "Hakuna Matata". Much comedy ensues, with a revealing insight into the original film's events. Why do the animals bow at Simba's presentation at Pride Rock? Why does everyone fall over at the end of "I Just Can't Wait To Be King?" Watch to find out. Having eventually found their perfect home, their meeting with Simba is retold and we get to see some of Simba's teenage years - missed out in the original film. (Timon has a wonderful line during a particularly restless night looking after a young Simba - "we're gonna get old walking across this thing". As soon as you hear it you'll know exactly what it's getting at). Next to be dealt with is Simba's reunion with Nala and his trip home to Pride Rock to avenge his father's death.

Our whole family actually really enjoyed this film. It should be noted that where the focus of Lion King 1 & 2 was primarily drama with comic relief, this film does not take itself seriously and is pure comedy. So, if comparing it to the other two films, you will likely come away disappointed. However, taken for what it is, pure and unadulterated nonsense, it is quite enjoyable. (I mean, come on, it's hosted by Timon and Pumbaa! What'd you expect?) :-)

If you were one who felt that the subject matter or drama of the original Lion King (or it's sequel) were a bit too intense for your young child, you'll be pleasantly surprised at this light-hearted fare featuring the Lion King ensemble. It's a great way to introduce children to the cast of characters they've become familiar with through theme parks, Disney marketing and television, in a harmless way.

If you're a big fan of the Lion King, you'll likely also enjoy this energetic and cheeky romp, with characters you've grown to love, containing references and in-jokes from the original film.

My wife and I experienced many laugh-out-loud moments through our viewing. And, our kids 6 and 8 were hysterical over it. It was great family entertainment, and great fun. Very much recommended. Enjoy!

This is actually the LION KING 1.5 retitled - I never truly cared for this.

We got to see a sneak showing of this Disney treat, and laughed until we cried! This clever retelling of the epic Disney story has more jokes and humor than any I've seen in a long time. And there are plenty of laughs for adults as well as children. If you call yourself a Disney fan, then this is a MUST OWN! From beginning to end: inventive and ingenious. (Note: Movie fans may find that just as the Lion King mirrored the story of Hamlet, this version may remind you of an indie film that told the same "Hamlet" story through the eyes of two minor characters -who's paralle storyline zig-zagged across the same chain of events. Only with nowhere near the same humorous results!) Hint: Place the remote where all can see it - or you'll think someone is playing with it!

Well at least there were lots of funny noises at meal time here too.

This film takes you back before the beginning of The Lion King, and neatly fills in all the gaps that you never realised existed.

Timon is the "Flik" (A Bug's Life) of his community, clumsy and discontent with his lot in life, and sets off to find his dream home, where he can fit in. He meets up with Pumba, and the friendship begins.

The animation is great, the original cast give an excellent performance, the jokes and puns are non-stop, and there are new songs that are very catchy.

There's a funny karaoke sing a-long where you need to keep an eye on the insect that's setting the timing, and somehow excerpts from "Fiddler on the Roof", "The Good The Bad and the Ugly" and other themes fit right in.

Brace yourself for the finale, that involves synchronised swimming, para gliding, and a huge cast of characters.

The only black mark on this movie is it's length, at only 77 minutes, but on the bright side, it's only 77 minutes to watch over and over with your kids.

This is one of Disney's better sequels. It isn't a "Toy Story 2", but a far better movie than many other direct-to-video disasters we've seen. It's laugh out loud funny, but children may not get all the jokes.

Worth at least 4.5 stars.
