THE LION KING-The Circle of Life Edition

There may not be a Disney animated feature that stirs up emotions as much as THE LION KING.  Disneys THE LION KING, originally released in 1994, is a classic that has stood the test of time. For over 20 years, generations have been able to enjoy an amazing storyline, an award winning soundtrack, and characters we all love.  The relationship between Simba and his father, Mufasa, is one that pulls at the heart strings and brings a smile to your face.  Zany sidekicks Timon and Pumbaa are true comic relief in a sometimes heavy storyline-remember the first time you watched Mufasa fall?  Simba’s uncle Scar and his hyena underlings are iconic Disney villains. THE LION KING-The Circle of Life Edition includes the Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital versions.  There are some outstanding bonus extras. Be sure to check out The Recording Sessions and watch the actors bring their characters to life in the studio.  Inside the Story Room has the behind the scenes footage that I love.  I could watch the crew go through the storyboards all day long. I think it is so cool that they can basically act out the whole movie just by using the storyboards.  (I have even incorporated US history storyboards into my classroom lesson plans!) There are bloopers with the animated characters and great interviews.  The interview with Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane was too short.  I want more!  The kind has certainly returned in this newest Walt Disney Signature Collection release.  Take time out of your stressful day to go back to the pridelands and lose yourself in THE LION KING-The Circle of Life Edition.  Hakuna Matata!
