Disney's THE LION KING SPECIAL EDITION features an all-new song, "Morning Report," and never-before-seen animation, giving you even more of this award-winning masterpiece -- the greatest animated adventure of all time. An unforgettable story, breathtaking animation, beloved characters, and Academy Award(R)-winning music (Best Original Score, 1994; Best Song, "Can You Feel The Love Tonight") set the stage for the adventures of Simba, the feisty lion cub who "just can't wait to be king." But his envious Uncle Scar has plans for his own ascent to the throne, and he forces Simba's exile from the kingdom. Alone and adrift, Simba soon joins the escapades of a hilarious meerkat named Timon and his warmhearted warthog pal, Pumbaa. Adopting their carefree lifestyle of "Hakuna Matata," Simba ignores his real responsibilities until he realizes his destiny and returns to the Pride Lands to claim his place in the "Circle of Life." Now extensively restored and remastered -- experience THE LION KING like never before, from its magnificent musical opening over breathtaking African vistas to its emotional climax. The all-star vocal talents -- including Matthew Broderick, Jeremy Irons, Nathan Lane, and Ernie Sabella -- rip-roaring comedy, and uplifting messages of courage, loyalty, and hope make this timeless tale entertainment for all ages.

I gotta start this with - I absolutely adore Timone & Pumba, those two are a hoot. LOL Love the scene where the water turns into a *Ahem* hot-tub.. LOL Cracked me up, I'm still smiling as I write this...
The Story goes like this, A young lion cub (Simba) set's out on his own to explore and his father becomes very protective of him and tells him not to do that as it could be dangerous. Simba then finds himself out exploring again on his own and gets caught up in a potential deadly situation. His father comes to his rescue and ends up losing his life while trying to save him. Except the one responsible for his death is really another male lion who wanted to be 'king of the pride' and Simba knows this as he saw it happen. The male lion banishes Simba never to return with the threat of telling everyone that he (Simba) will be blamed for his fathers death. Through Simba's journey of self discovery he makes many friends who ultimately help him grow into a strong male lion himself. He also falls in love along the way with a childhood friend (Nala) who convinces him to return to his pride and claim himself to be 'The Lion King'. I don't really want to go into any more detail than that as I don't want to give too much away. I will add that this is a MUST SEE Disney classic, one of the greats and not to be missed.
This movie had me welling up with tears a few times, laughing out loud, and just generally feeling good. This movie has a good message to tell and is heartfelt. Truely 'Epic' even. Bound to become a true classic
I watched this movie many years ago when it first came out, But recently bought it in 3D to add to my 3D movie collection. And I have to say what a visual treat this was being able to watch it in 3D. Let alone the fact that It's such an awesome movie / story! We as a family all enjoyed every minute of it. It is well written, flows well, and has enough depth to keep us entertained from beginning to end. It is my firm belief that this Disney animation will end up being one of the 'great' classics just like Bambi, Cinderella, Snow White, etc... This one did not disappoint. There are a few scenes with a little bit of violence in them, but nothing I would keep any of the young ones from viewing. And as for how well the 3D was done, well. it was GREAT! It always seems that animated films carry over quite well into 3D and this was no exception.
All in all I would have to say that this is a great animated Disney film that the ENTIRE family will enjoy. And you can feel safe enough to let the little ones watch it too without fear of too much violence or any bad language
From buyer in US, no issues with this being played on a US Blu-ray player.
