Reviews
Mine: One of the best of the recent Disney hits. A Hamlet like story. Some really good supporting characters. Good music. A cut above.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A lion cub raised to take his father's place someday as king of the jungle is sabotaged by his evil uncle--and lives in exile until he realizes his rightful place in the circle of life. With distant echoes of BAMBI, this entertaining Disney cartoon feature (highlighted by Oscar-winning Elton John-Tim Rice songs and Oscar-winning music score by Hans Zimmer) has dazzling scenics, some show-stopping animation, and outstanding voice work--but drama so intense (and comedy so hip) it's not really for very young viewers. Followed by animated TV series, a direct-to-video sequel THE LION KING: SIMBA'S PRIDE and a Broadway musical.
