Please note that Disney Rewards are not available in the US (only available in the UK). Triple bill of Disney animated features following a naive and curious lion cub as he struggles to find his place in nature's great 'circle of life'. In 'The Lion King' (1994) Simba (voice of Jonathan Taylor Thomas/Matthew Broderick) is excited about being king of the pride but is forced into exile by his evil and greedy uncle, Scar (Jeremy Irons), who wants to claim the throne for himself. Away from his family, Simba meets a meerkat named Timon (Nathan Lane) and a warthog named Pumbaa (Ernie Sabella). With the help of his new friends he overcomes great fear and adversity to defeat Scar and take his rightful place as ruler of the Pride Lands. In 'The Lion King 2 - Simba's Pride' (1998) Simba's wilful daughter, Kiara (Neve Campbell), escapes her inept babysitters, Timon and Pumbaa, and goes in search of adventure. She wanders into the forbidden Outlands, where she encounters Kovu (Jason Marsden), a young cub who is following in the evil Scar's pawprints. However, Simba is forced to make difficult decisions when Kiara and Kovu fall in love. In 'The Lion King 3 - Hakuna Matata' (2004) the original story is told from Timon and Pumbaa's perspective. When Timon decides to explore the world, it's not long before his path crosses with that of Pumbaa and they become good friends. But their plan to find a new home is forgotten when they come across a young cub called Simba and help him save the Serengeti..

Fantastic quality and even better films. They do include a "Sing-A-Long" mode as well.
One should do themselves a favor and purchase their own copy of The Lion King on Blu Ray before it goes back into the infamous Disney Vault. Adults with children should be cautioned if their child(ren) is/are of considerably young age - Mufasa's death is as saddening and moving as ever, and yet Hakuna Matata will have them singing and dancing around your house in no time.
This is the best price around for all 3 (1, 1.5, 2) and the bonus stuff is just that, a bonus. The birthday hasn't arrived yet so no comment based on actually viewing the bonus materials.
I will say when the first shipment arrived in a damaged box with the package also crumpled up I didn't even open and try to play the discs. However, the return and replacement process with Amazon couldn't have been much easier given I never had to leave my house to purchase in the first place. A couple of clicks and some keystrokes, print a form / label, box it up and drop it off at the post office. Replacement was perfect condition and arrived well ahead of the commit date.
What I really like is that in the original Lion King, they've kept it to the original theatrical release. Meaning that the added song, Morning Report, in the Special Edition that came out a while ago isn't in it. It's a cute song, but they had to use a different voice actor for Simba since the original one was too old. Plus, this was the way I first saw and grew up with Lion King.
Also, it looks that Disney has completely remastered The Lion King. (2 and 1 1/2 were made later on, so I don't think they needed it as much) This means that the lines in the animation are pristine, not 'scratchy' looking which is reminiscent of 90's and earlier animation. At first I felt a loss of nostalgia, but I soon got over it once I realized that this is how The Lion King was meant to be. The sound is beautiful and crystal clear as well.
The box it comes in seems to be a harder, condensed form of cardboard, as is the drum. The box is textured, giving a carved wood feel. The top of the drum pulls apart, revealing the CD's. They are kept in an accordion-style paper-board container. It's probably not the best of places to keep a CD, but it doesn't seem like they'll be moving around much and a few pieces of that soft paper that comes with protective CD sleeves can easily fix any potential problems.
Altogether a great deal. At $75 it is less than $10 a disc and right now Amazon has free shipping on it. I highly recommend this set to anyone who grew up as a Disney kid or collects the movies. This was the first movie I saw with my sister in theaters, and the first movie I owned. And now I have a set that will last so I can pass on the magic to my own children.
