"In Remembrance Of Frank Wells, President Of The Walt Disney Company. from 1984-1994" See more »
When the movie was released on DVD in October 2003, it offered two versions of the film: The "Special Edition" (the 2002 IMAX re-release), and the "Original Theatrical Release". The "Original Theatrical Release" is actually identical to the 2002 IMAX/"Special Edition" re-release, except that it opens with the memorial card to Frank Wells, following the Walt Disney Pictures logo. This includes the pouncing lesson scene. The Original Theatrical Release on the 2003 Platinum Edition DVD release omits the original scrolling end credits sequence and it contains the different end credits from the 2002 IMAX/Special Edition re-release. All of the other edits that were made to the 2002 IMAX re-release (the cleaned-up animation, etc.) are also present in this version. See more »
The Lion King is a great film. Along with a great story (inspired by William Shakespeare's Hamlet), terrific animation, and an all star cast of voices, there are the lessons that are learned from this film (despite being a little rough for the younger children). Like responsibility and honor.
I rank this animated film among the great films I have ever seen. It was part of my childhood and it is a film experience I will never forget. And hopefully, you won't either. A++
