Plot Summary
Now in 3D. 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.

Review
Still the same as the original, THE LION KING 3D was now even more realistic which keeps you glued to the screen. More exciting and appealing to the people who have and have not seen the movie and to the fans, but it's still my favourite which I could see it over and over again. I'm glad they removed the Morning Report song because nobody liked it and they changed it back to the pouncing lesson scene. It started the tradition of old movies being re-released in 3D. 

If you have seen it on 2D (click here), check out the 3D version. I'm sure you like it or you prefer the original one.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever
