In the beginning, Rafiki is shown climbing up the rock to greet Mufasa. But from any other longer shot of the rock, its obvious that there's no way anyone can climb it from the front. See more »

This film was re-released in IMAX and other large format theaters on December 25, 2002. The following changes were made to the film for this release:
-This movie opens with "The Lion King: Special Edition" title card, following the Walt Disney Pictures logo.
-The pouncing lesson scene was replaced with an all-new song, "Morning Report", originally from the stage show.
-The animation of crocodiles in the "I Just Can't Wait to be King" sequence was completely re-done.
-The animation in some of the scenes went back through the clean-up animation department a second time, to correct problems such as wavering lines and missing details, which, while not very noticeable during a traditional 35mm showing of the film, would have been discomforting on a much large IMAX screen. Small details, such as the characters who had faces that were too small to be seen in the original had faces, were also added.
-The waterfalls in the "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" sequence were enhanced.
-The 2003 Platinum Edition release contains the different end credits from the 2002 IMAX/Special Edition re-release. See more »
This is truly one of the best Disney movies ever. I really enjoyed it when I first seen it, about when I was 6, and since then I watched it over and over again. I simply LOOOOVED the music. It's one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard. And, speaking of soundtrack, I just can't tell in words how much I love the song "Can You Feel The Love Tonight". Is one of my favorite songs ever. I truly believe that this motion picture could easily be nominated for The Best Picture, but The Best Song and the Best Original Score is really enough. I wonder if they will ever think to make a prequel of this movie in order to understand who is Mufasa, Scar, Sarabi and the other characters. In short, this movie will be remembered in the next 100 years. Truly.
